From M.K. Hobson, author of the Nebula award nominated THE NATIVE STAR, comes the newest installment in her Veneficas Americana series–THE WARLOCK’S CURSE.
Welcome to my stop on The Warlock’s Curse Teaser Tour! This tour is a short tour of excerpts on six different blogs as well as a giveaway of a full set of M.K. Hobson’s books and a Tesla Industries pin.
Make sure you go to the first tour stop to read the excerpt and enter the giveaway and then continue on. As you read each piece in order you’ll get a very good idea of what a fantastic book this is! Plus you have 6 different chances of winning all three of her books!
Please note that while it says this is the newest installment in the Veneficas Americana series, this is the first in a new duology. So it’s new characters and takes place 30 or so years in the future from the previous books and they do not need to be read first. It’s the same world, new characters.
The Warlock’s Curse releases October 31st, so be sure to pick up your copy!

About the book:
THE YEAR IS 1910. Eighteen-year-old Will Edwards has landed a prestigious apprenticeship at Detroit’s Tesla Industries, the most advanced scientific research center in the United States. It’s a plum prize for a young man who dreams of a career in the new science of Otherwhere Engineering.
But his father doesn’t want him to go. And he won’t tell him why.
Determined to get there by any means necessary, Will finds unexpected support along the way. His old friend Jenny Hansen—daughter of a San Francisco timber baron—is eager to help him for reasons of her own. And so is his estranged brother Ben, who he hasn’t seen in over ten years.
But running away turns out to be the easy part. On the first full moon after his eighteenth birthday, Will is stricken by a powerful magic—a devastating curse laid upon his ancestors by the malevolent sangrimancer Aebedel Cowdray. Will must find a way to control the magic that possesses him—or the vengeful warlock’s spirit will destroy everything and everyone he loves.
