  The Ghost Engine

  She thought she could change the world...

  When Lady Elizabeth Ada Lovelace, a beautiful, arrogant suffragette, purchased the 19th-century Algorithmic Engine in order to become the world's first programmer, she planned to break the shackles of inequality for Victorian women.

  Until her world became that of the machine...

  Instead she learns the true meaning of equality when she ends up trapped, brought down to the level of the machine. Inside the double-crossing computer, Elizabeth must match wits with a stubbornly idealistic ghost and a chillingly handsome doppelganger in the computer's endless series of mind games. But as the machine learns to become a sentient being, time is ticking away. Elizabeth finds herself falling in love with the ghost trapped in the machine. Together they are pitted in a race against the machine to escape before the Algorithmic Engine shuts down ‐ killing them all.

  Now all their worlds hang in the balance.

Praise for The Ghost Engine

"The  Ghost  Engine is a non‐stop thrill ride fueled by adventure and suspense. Readers will find themselves captured by a magical world where the concepts of humanity and AI become blurred and reality loses its meaning. This one will have you turning the pages faster and faster to keep up." ‐ JG Faherty, author of The Cure, Ghosts of Coronado Bay, and The Burning Time.

"Theresa Fuller primes The  Ghost  Engine with vivid description to transport readers on a steam punk journey into a dangerous world with her defiant heroine in this audacious challenge to Victorian oppression laced with historical insight." ‐ Gregory Lamberson, author of Johnny Gruesome and Black Creek

"The  Ghost  Engine is a sharp and intriguing re-imagining of the Ada Lovelace/Charles Babbage Analytical Engine. The writer takes us on a fantastical journey into the heart of the Engine, and the societal struggles of women at that time." ‐ Amanda J Spedding, two-time Australian Shadows Award winner(short fiction;graphic novel).
