Owl Dance

1876, Sheriff Ramon Morales of Socorro, New Mexico meets a beguiling woman named Fatemeh Karimi of Persia, escaping oppression in her homeland. When an ancient lifeform called Legion comes to Earth, they are pulled into a series of events that will change the history of the world as we know it. In their journeys, Ramon and Fatemeh encounter mad inventors, dangerous outlaws and pirates. Their resources are Ramon's fast draw and Fatemeh's uncanny ability to communicate with owls. The question is, will that be enough to save them when a fleet of dirigibles from Czarist Russia invades the United States?

"Owl Dance has everything. Airships, owl-ornithopters, a clockwork wolf, a multiple alien entity, a fast-shooting sheriff, a Russian plot to conquer America, and a very sexy, eco-aware, Bahá'í Persian healer-woman - I mean everything! Heaps of fun!" Richard Harland, author of Worldshaker and Liberator

"A rip-snorting, Wild West steampunk extravaganza with a touch of Arabian Nights that comes alive with authentic insight into the magic, peoples, and landscapes of the Southwest. Satisfies as both science fiction, and a western that is fantastic, and comes alive with realism. The kind of book that makes me proud to live in Aztlán." Ernest Hogan, author of Cortez on Jupiter and High Aztech

"Owl Dance is a great western-style steampunk science fiction tale. Summers knows science, and it shows in really fun ways in this one, keeping this wondrous. If you like steampunk or westerns or just a having a really great time, give Owl Dance a read. I think you'll really enjoy it." Trent Zelazny, author of To Sleep Gently and Destination Unknown

"In David Lee Summers' seventh novel, Owl Dance, he explores the American Southwest in a crazy 1800s Wild West Steampunk adventure. This was the perfect brain candy for me and diving into the first chapter, I felt right at home … Clockwork wolves and owls, cutting edge submersibles, dirigibles, and one Persian lady who whistle-talks to owls. It's a great ride. If you're looking for a good read and satisfying adventure, jump into Owl Dance." darkcargo.com (Click the link to read the full review)
