About the Book

Series Ned Kelly #1

“Taking an Australian Legend and rewriting it into an apocalyptic future where magic exists, gold fever is upon us, and a corrupt legal system once again makes bushrangers our heroes,” Lancy’s Reads.

Ned Kelly’s story is infamous, but this is not Ned Kelly’s story. This is the story of a young man named Kelly, inspired by some crazy Australian legends, but all written as pure fiction.

With the addition of Victoria, a feisty and suddenly abandoned woman right on the verge of marry-or-perish age. Her fate is all Kelly’s fault and she plans on making him aware of that – winds up saving his life, after he saves hers, and the whole time whilst running from the law.

The world has been hit by an event that has turned all metal into a conductor of magic. The stuff is lethal. Which means no more cars, no more phones, no more pots and pans. Give it a few decades and the dust has settled into a colonial/settler landscape. Horses, carts, and old world values.

Marriage is essential, careers for women are very uncommon and the domestic workload is massive. But a woodcutters daughter like Victoria doesn’t have many options. She hates them all and dreads the conversation with her parents, but resigns herself to suffer in silence. She will marry whomever her father arranges.

Which just might be the local law, who has the darkest most painful fantasies about her.

Then her father makes the mistake of offending a handful of outlaws on the way out of town and the men follow the family home. They forcefully join the family for dinner, changing Victoria’s life forever when she emerges from her room the next morning having slept the night with a convict. Never mind that she did it to take their attention off her younger sisters, or that her father created the whole mess by saying the wrong thing to the wrong people, Victoria is ostracised. Tossed out then and there. Barefoot and with nothing but an old woodcutter’s hand-me-down dress – and dresses are damned useless for running around in the bush in.

She would be free of her marriage dilemmas, small consolation, if the local law didn’t take up the hunt and put a price on all of their heads. Being found by him would be an endless fate worse than death.

Which begins the whole saga of trouble, villainy, brutality, lust, revenge, mateship and good old Australian larrikiny.

“Hilarious and dark,” Samantha’s Book Reviews.

18+ warning… maybe even 21+. This book takes readers to some dark scenes, including rape.
