Who is Doctor Azaz?

It is the 19th Century, and Azazian England is at it's pinnacle. Aeroplanes rule the sky, and crystalline technology has transformed life itself. But for stunt pilot Jack Racine, life is little more than an endless tailspin into liquor, laudanum, and loose women.

But all that is about to change.

For Jack Racine is about to have an audience with the architect of the age, the mysterious Doctor Azaz...

Quote to note:
Darling, your triangle has become a square, Harlow said and marched back into the bedroom to gather her things.

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): scoundrel
LOVED this coming-of-hero story set in a steampunk world.

Touches of Egypt and its lore add to the adventure and mystery which makes this a colorful story.
