The second volume in “The Ehrich Weisz Chronicles” returns to the steampunk fantasy of multiple universes or dimensions set in a 1888 New York city playing out in an alternate version of our world’s New York. We find the hero, a youthful teenage Ehrich Weisz, still attempting to rescue his younger brother Dash. Now a fugitive, Ehrich is hiding in the city slums. Tensions are growing between the locals and the Dimensionals who are seeking to migrate to this world from other dimensions. Ehrich poses as a stage magician under the name Harry Houdini while searching for the assassin who has captured his brother’s soul. Hunted by his old comrades in the Demon Watch, helped by allies including the inventor Tesla, he struggles against two forces. Local authorities are led by Thomas Edison and his Demon Watch while a dangerous inter dimensional conqueror plots to invade this world.
The story continues with the struggles and characters from the first volume, Demon Gate. This is one trilogy where it is a definite asset to read them in published order so as to follow the tale’s twists and turns and keep track of the characters.
The book consists of 263 pages, including a half page of acknowledgments, and is broken into several chapters with descriptive headings rather than numbers. Infinity Coil is well written adventure tale that describes a very unusual version of our world, one complete with multiple villains and heroes, not all of whom are human.
For readers who enjoy complex plots, steampunk settings, and plenty of action.
