When Delia chose to major in archaeology, she imagined herself as the female Indiana Jones of the Southwest. She didn’t imagine herself crawling through abandoned mine shafts, scrounging for rusty pickaxes and gold pans to sell on auction sites, but Indiana Jones didn’t have to make student loan payments.

Scouring the mountains of Arizona with Simon, her best friend and computer geek extraordinaire, Delia dreams of turning their scavenging enterprise into a legitimate business. More, she longs to earn the respect of peers who shun her for turning into a treasure hunter. What she doesn’t dream of is stumbling across a decapitated body in an old mine near Prescott.

Something dangerous has come to the mountains, and two Harley-riding strangers are the only ones who seem to have a clue. They speak a language Delia has never heard and carry mysterious artifacts she’s never seen. Investigating these strangers might lead her to discoveries that change the face of archaeology forever… or it might lead her and her best friend into a deadly monster’s lair.

One of the things I really like about compilation books is that you often find new authors with a style that you enjoy and read more of. With the best will in the world – and even with my reading speed of some 300 plus a year (!) – you just can’t read all the new authors (and old ones too) out there and so being led into a group of friends who write in a similar style is great.

So it was with the box set ‘Witches and Warriors’ which led me to Lindsay Buroker. A new author to me but one that has been writing Secondary World Sagas for about 7 years, and has managed to write some 6 different sets of novels in that time. All steam-punk and fantasy and is now a full-time author with her earnings.. but hasn’t she worked hard to get there?…

So I discovered Lindsay’s other series and was drawn to the new saga based on Earth – Rust and Relics .

A female Harrison Ford. Why not? A bull whip can be very handy it turns out for fighting, substituting for rope,useful in collecting items, and generally giving the wearer an air of menace!

A great collection of characters were all connected up into a fighting and relic hunting group with some amazing foes – and a strong hint that human behaviour is how these foes are created.
