Sampler of The Yellow Hoods

Steampunk Meets Fairytale in The Yellow Hoods.

The stories we've heard of Little Red Riding Hood, Santa Claus, Hansel and Gretel and more were just stories for us, but in this 1800s-styled world, it's so much more. Discover a secret society named The Tub, led by butchers, bakers, and candlestick makers, or two brilliant inventors in their twilight years, Nikolas Klaus and Christophe Creangle. And at the heart of this gripping and snarky humored series, meet Tee, Elly and Richy on their way to becoming legends in their own time.

Get a peek into the world of The Yellow Hoods with a sample of chapters from the seemingly innocent Book 1 - Along Came a Wolf, the darker Book 2 - Breadcrumb Trail, and the betrayal ridden Book 3 - All the King's-Men.


Snappy and Dashing

As the clockwork carriage shuttled along, Richelle Pieman’s mind was on the next step of their ambitious enterprise. Their nemesis, the secret society known as the Tub, had just been dealt a devastating blow, but was it going to be enough?
All her life, Richelle followed in the footsteps of her grandfather, a true renaissance man and genius, but she was growing impatient. Eager for something new and different, life was about to give her exactly what she wished for.
Careful what you wish for in this world of steampunk meets fairy tale, for Mondus Fumus is always listening.

This short, stand-alone story also includes a sample chapter from Breadcrumb Trail - Book 2 of The Yellow Hoods and from Adam Dreece’s upcoming new Mondus Fumus series, The King’s Horse.
