Peacemaker (Sharps and Springfield Book 1) by Morgan Brice; Narrated by John Solo

A new set of investigators to root for in Peacemaker, the start of a new series from Morgan Brice. Supernatural agents in a historical setting of the old west where there are railroad barons, fights for land, and underneath it all a community hidden from most humans that includes vampires, werewolves, ghosts and demons.

From the blurb:

Secret agents, forbidden love, danger, and magic!

Supernatural Secret Service agents Owen Sharps and Calvin Springfield meet on the train to their new assignment in St. Louis, and sparks fly between them. But it's 1897, and they need to be very careful—falling in love can be dangerous for men like them.

It's their first case together, investigating mysterious disappearances—including the two agents who preceded them. Grim evidence leads them to look for a darker purpose. Old ghosts haunt the railroad line, zombie rise, signs point to ritual sacrifice, and they suspect someone is trying to open the gates of hell.

Can Calvin and Owen stop the mayhem, thwart the vampires, and find true love, or will everything go up in smoke?

Peacemaker is a high-stakes steampunk MM romance thrill ride filled with found family, paranormal Pinkertons, intrepid reporters, mysterious disappearances, nefarious land brokers, hellhounds, zombies, vengeful spirits, dark spells, absinthe magic, a ruthless vampire railroad baron and a love that won't be denied.

Before Colt and Winchester, there was Sharps & Springfield!

Peacemaker is the first book in the new Sharps & Springfield series.

Lesetiger's review:

I was really looking forward to Morgan Brice's new series and the author has made a great start to the new series.

Sharps & Springfield is a little different from the previous series, but just as good to read.
The story takes place in 1897, when same-sex love was simply not allowed.

I liked the two protagonists, Owen Sharps and Calvin Springfield, who met on the train. The two of them take on an assignment and their first case together is to solve the mysterious disappearance of two agents.
I found the two of them very likeable and the sparks fly - the chemistry is palpable. But they have to be very careful, especially when you assume that the other is not attracted to you. Revealing your feelings could end in disaster. But so could close cooperation.

There are several villains and a wide variety of paranormal protagonists who never let you get bored.
Morgan Brice has described the world vividly and in detail, so that I could imagine everything very well. The investigations are exciting and there are also lovable secondary characters.

Overall, I was thoroughly entertained by the audiobook narrated by John Solo. He did a good job and brought the story to life.

I'm already looking forward to the next volume!
