Breathing life into an old tale

Ok, this is what I'm working on at the moment. It's dark fantasy with a bit of steam punk thrown in for good measure. I first started writing this about eight years ago. The first draft was horrible. The story and plot was there but the writing skills just hadn't developed.

A couple of years ago I rewrote it, all 120k of it, and now I've dusted it off and started editing it. I've liked this story for a long time and think it deserves telling.

Anyway, it's not far off now and, between bouts of editing, I've created a cover for it.



And a bit of blurb, definitely subject to change:

Michael Mortain inherits more than just wealth when his uncle dies in a freak accident. He also takes on Friedrich’s magic, a rare power coveted by the insane witch, Morga, and her pet gamora. In a world of darkness and witchcraft Michael soon finds himself fighting for his life and that of the woman he loves, whilst evading the clutches of the inquisition in a bloody clash of magic and religion.
