Dawn’s Early Light is a fantastic read. This latest entry into the series is delicious fun that shouldn’t be missed.

And here is the back copy

Working for the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences, one sees innumerable technological wonders. But even veteran agents Braun and Books are unprepared for what the electrifying future holds…

After being ignominiously shipped out of England following their participation in the Janus affair, Braun and Books are ready to prove their worth as agents. But what starts as a simple mission in the States—intended to keep them out of trouble—suddenly turns into a scandalous and convoluted case that has connections reaching as far as Her Majesty the Queen.

Even with the help of two American agents from the Office of the Supernatural and the Metaphysical, Braun and Books have their work cut out for them as their chief suspect in a rash of nautical and aerial disasters is none other than Thomas Edison. Between the fantastic electric machines of Edison, the eccentricities of MoPO consultant Nikola Tesla, and the mysterious machinations of a new threat known only as the Maestro, they may find themselves in far worse danger than they ever have been in before…Dawns Early Light - audio

and for those of an audio inclination…

You can pick up either  Audio CD or as a download from Audible. The book is narrated by the wonderful James Langton, who also narrated Phoenix Rising and the Janus Affair.

How can you help? Well…spreading the word would help. Tell your friends on the street, on Facebook, Twitter, or your favorite social network. Once you’ve read it please do take a moment to drop a review—it really does make a difference. We want to show Ace how powerful the readers and listeners of the Ministry are.

The book is not available for purchase in Russia on Audible. First two books I’ve bought and listened with particular pleasure. What’s wrong with the third?

The Audible version goes live tomorrow in the USA, I’m not entirely certain on the rollout of other regions, but it should be worldwide shortly. And thank you for listening!

Hello, same problem for the Italian market: Audible site says I can’t purchase the book due to international restrictions from the publisher.
At least, the Kindle edition went smooth. I’ve read it in a single day, now am longing for the next. (^_^)

Well now, if you are hungry for more Ministry adventures, do look into Tales from the Archives, our free podcast here on You can also order a copy of Ministry Protocol, an original anthology of short stories featuring works from Delilah S. Dawson, Karina Cooper, Alex White, and Jared Axelrod.

If there is anything that the Ministry is not short on — it’s fiction for our readers! ~WB

Still nothing 🙁 Audible: “Due to publishing rights restrictions, we are not authorized to sell this item in the country where you live”. Tantor Audio does not have “the rights to sell this title to certain countries”. This is ridiculous! They are making this book and the don’t have the rights? Who has then? Who makes these dumb restrictions anyway?!

I’m listening to the very talented James Langton read the audio of this book while I’m on the road and I absolutely love it. I am intrigued to see where the characters responsible for the technology overlap or cross paths, and I really enjoy the dichotomy between our familiar archivist and agent, and the American operatives. Can’t wait to see what happens!

Is there a particular reason why you changed publishers and thus different covers. I’m one of those people who like their series all looking the same (3rd book looks way different from the 1st 2).

Loved the 1st 2. Haven’t gotten around buying the 3rd one but from what i heard it’s pretty much as awesome as the rest.

Eliza D Braun April 7, 2014 at 1:47 pm

The reason we changed is rather simple; Ace offered us a better deal for the series, one that we couldn’t turn down. As far as the covers go, we hope the difference in covers is made up by the content being the same; our agents and their derry-doing.

Just finished “Dawn..” and loved it.
Can’t wait for the continuation and am wondering HOW it will go on from here, but more pressing is WHEN will it continue?
Keep up the FANTASTIC work.
