Summary

To forget and live, or to live and fight?

The Marshal. Melvin Kaur is a nobleman, a magician, and a high-ranking cog in the Clockwork Brigade working out of Istal. His well-established spot in high society is a grand cover for the smuggling his family oversees. But when a handoff goes wrong, and Melvin is forced to flee through the night with his charges, he finds unexpected help from an endearing man in the unlikeliest of places.

The Toy Maker. Ezra Wren is trying to keep his family’s business in the black and the banks at bay, but the numbers in his ledger do not lie. Debt bondage is a very real threat he will soon have to face, and that was before a bloodied nobleman broke into his toy shop in the dead of night. Despite the risk, Ezra can’t turn away those in need, and finds himself saying yes to a nobleman’s plea and losing his heart in the process when he can ill afford to lose anything.

Previously released through Prolific Works in 2022. No changes to the text have been made.

Fabulous Steampunk

I’m loving Hailey Turner’s Infernal War Saga and was thrilled to see her release her novella on audio. Although I picked it up last year, I haven’t had a chance to read it – so thank you Hailey for giving me the opportunity. And thank you, Gary Furlong, for doing a fabulous job narrating this story. As always, you deliver a fantastic performance and I could listen to you all day and never tire.

The story is about two men in a time when things can be perilous for those who owe money (which always gives me the creeps since I’m so far in debt. In this story, Ezra is on the verge of becoming indentured and all that entails. He saves Melvin’s life, without hesitation, and Melvin expresses his gratitude in some rather interesting ways. Melvin offers Ezra a way out – and Ezra gets the chance to help those less fortunate.

This is the prequel to the series. I devoured book 1 and book 2 is coming shortly (I’m doing grabby hands). I’m loving this complexly woven tale in the world of steampunk. Can’t wait for the next one.

An Emporium of Hearts

A great prequel to the An Infernal War Saga, this book focuses on Ezra, a toy maker and Melvin, nobleman magician and high-ranking cog in the Clockwork Bridge. It gives you some background and history to how they came to be together in The Princes Poisoned Vow.
Great world building as you have come to expect from Ms Turner.

A great quick listen

I mostly listen to audio books on my commute to work - and this one was perfect as I could listen to it in a couple of journeys.

We’re in the world of the Infernal Wars series and it’s a great addition to the series and the world building. I love Ezra and Melvin, and the fact that although it is a shorter story - it really doesn’t lack any of the things that make the author’s writing magnificent.

The narration is also spot on (no surprise) and I eagerly await the next in the series.

Great readingI

I read the e-version of this book in a giveaway and I loved it so much because I learned more about this wonderful world Ms Turner built in the Infernal War Saga through Melvin and Ezra's story. Mr Furlong did an amazing job in this audiobook with his smooth voice and great acting skills, delivering to us a narration that caught me since the first minute. Great addition to the series!

Great Prequel

An Emporium of Hearts is the prequel novella to the Infernal War Saga, an epic sci-fi/steampunk/fantasy series with incredible worldbuilding and characters. This novella can be read as a standalone or before book one of the Infernal Wars Saga. The worldbuilding is kept to a minimum and clearly explained. The story focuses more on the romance between Melvin and Ezra as they navigate a dangerous world where one misstep can ruin not only themselves, but their entire families. For a short novella, this story has it all: romance, action, and suspense. It’s a great introduction to the Infernal War Saga and a great addition to the world.

Gary Furlong narrated the audiobook and does a fantastic job, just like always. I love Gary’s voice so much and he really knows how to embody and bring to life each character. The audiobook production was well done.

Short, but I enjoyed it

This is the first book I read, (well, listen since it was an audiobook), by Hailey Turner. It is a short novella about Melvin and Ezra, and I really enjoyed it. The two men are on the opposite of the social scale. Melvin is a Marshal, a nobleman, while Ezra is a Toy Maker, struggling with a lot of debts. The two men meet in a difficult situation, where unespectedly, Melvin finds Ezra’s help.
The attraction is strong between them, and despite their differences, they eventually manage to reach the happy ending to their love story.
I loved the characters, Melvin’s generosity, as well as Ezra’s courage. The world around them is also well described, and the narration gives an extra touch.

Steampunk MM Series

Steampunk MM series

A great start to a new series by Hailey Turner. Her worldbuilding goes above and beyond; you can imagine yourself amongst the drama living with the Clockwork Brigade or any other group.

What a novella this is, Marshall and the toy maker, plus the debt bonded, such a powerful story in a short but intriguing book. Well worth the read. A great addition to the series so far.

Gary Furlong tells the story well; his ability to do all the voices is incredible. It entirely made the audio experience.

Fun short listen

Story: Set in the magical and riveting Infernal War Saga world, the story was a great quick palate cleanser. There is enough of a plot and feels to make it entertaining and show off the author's stroytelling skills, which I love.
Narration: Good performance and no technical issues at all.

short, sweet and sexy

A captivating taste of the new world Hailey has created and two men that hold their place in this intricate world. Fast paced, short and full of chemistry, I really enjoyed Melvin and Ezra's connection and I hope we might get cameos of these men within the series to come!
