Product Description

THE 3rd TURN OF THE SHADOW TECH GODDESS The quest of Paymaster Stenstrom spans the planes, taking a bizarre turn in the 3rd universe, as there he is not an affluent man but a woman in desperate circumstances. Lady Stenibelle is imprisoned for her role in the Seeker Affair, is penniless, and her House of Belmont-South Tyrol is on the verge of extinction. Her spirit broken, Stenibelle is resigned to perform her sentence without fuss, do as she is told, and fade away in obscurity. However, fate is not yet finished with her. Stenibelle is in the gaze of hidden benefactors with ulterior motives. People claiming to be her dear friends come forward, yet she does not know them. The Quests of the Shadow tech Goddess proceed, and she must discover the hero that lies within or face total oblivion. The disgraced 30th daughter of the House of Belmont will either be the final stake driven into its dying heart, or the ray of light that comes to save it and all else that follows.

First off, just look at that cover! I love it! Some of my favorite parts of these books are the artwork.

Once again, this is another great book by Ren Garcia that adds to his fantasy world. I have read (hopefully) all the books written prior; so as I read, I catch a lot of the references to previous books. This really makes the book even more enjoyable with the deeper comprehensive read. I just love having characters from past books show up because it brings the familiar in an unfamiliar world. I find the concept of different dimensions fascinating. I think the author did a great job at expressing his thoughts on the matter in this amazing series. I look forward to reading more!

I am always impressed with how the author comes through with calming my concerns. As I began reading, I quickly came upon a writing element in the story that I did not like. I try to be an open person when it comes to people's sexual preferences, but to have a heterosexual female be pressured to become homosexual was pushing the boundaries of my patience. If it continued to develop the way I thought it was, I was going to dislike the book. But thankfully, it was referred to and open to be able to happen, but not forced within the story. It was a very interesting element in the story and I am very impressed with the way the author treated it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Journey to Empowerment 9 September 2015
By Chantal Boudreau - Published on Amazon.com

With this installment Ren Garcia’s Shadow Tech Goddess series, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. It had all of the wonderful world crafting and characterizations typical of his writing, but with its female protagonist/PoV, I was a little wary about how I would connect with the story.

I like to see stories that give female characters plenty of agency, especially adventure stories, and that’s difficult in the Victorian-esque patriarchal social-settings common to Garcia’s League of Elders series. It allows for dashing male heroes wielding great power and charm, but the female characters before this novel ,have been either demure, villainous, or struggling to control and wield what power they have – bordering on insane, damaged by their power or seeking isolation at the expense of their relationships.

In this vein, Stenibelle is at a disadvantage compared to her male counterparts right from the start. She starts at a major low and swings out far in the other direction to the point of arrogance and aggression, and I found myself hoping there would be some balance to come. Despite my frustration with her situation and her behaviour, the story was still very enjoyable.

At first Stenibelle didn't have her own agency - "lesser" than her male counterparts - and she had to have an extra hand up. Considering her social setting, however, there was no way of avoiding some disadvantage because of her gender. My discomfort at her struggles is a compliment to the author’s storytelling skills - I wouldn't have felt frustrated in the face of her circumstances if I hadn’t been so invested in the characters and the storyline.

There are other examples of empowered female characters in the story. Gwen was very strong in this book, despite getting beaten in a physical fight. Stenibelle was using unfair tactics to win and Gwen took the loss graciously without being cowed by it.

Alesta is also empowered, and my favourite character in the book. She works outside the boundaries of society because of her spiritual beliefs. She does what she feels is right and sometimes that meant being assertive. She's quite powerful even though she is humble about it and doesn't resort to throwing that power around carelessly.

Stenibelle, or Bel, does undergo growth of character. With the help of her friends, Bel, finds her agency and owns who she is. As Bel’s confidence grows it changes her dynamic with other characters, such as the bullying, villainous Professor Shurlamp. Shurlamp then has less power over her.
I really liked the changes that happen at this point in the book. Bel had to shake free the shackles of societal expectations and the unwarranted doubt it had created within her. Then she assumes responsibility for her fate directing the outcome of her adventure. In the end, I thought that this was one of Ren Garcia’s best stories yet. I look forward to the next one in this series.
5.0 out of 5 stars A woman grows before our eyes. 29 August 2015

Sci-fi books featuring female characters are plentiful, they're all over the place, but, how many feature a female character that isn't a helpless slave, or, on the other hand, an invicible man-hating war machine killing men by the hundreds? Additionally, how many are allowed to grow before the reader's eyes?

That's what we have here with Lady Belmont, though she doesn't start out that way. She starts out fairly helpless, is forced into doing things she doesn't want to do, and then, through mystical means, becomes a souless fighting machine. And then, those things are taken from her and Stenibelle must start over, must discover herself and make use of her own skills and tools. Sci-fi characters, especially female ones, tend to be fairly static. Not this one. Across the landscape of the League, she grows and discovers herself.

In keeping with the previous books in the series, Stenibelle is rife with interesting locations, fights, battles, and other odd doings. Being roughly half the size of the other books, the plot begins on page one, the author painting a vivid picture using very few words and little to no backstory.

Highly recommened. See for yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite gerna 21 September 2015
By Christine Abee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not my favorite genra so here is my honest review I had a hard time figuring out a lot of this story, but I did read it through to the end. From what could understand of this book the main character she/ he depending on the realm had powers and she was imprisoned at first was released to find this other realm for all so on the hunt for this she finds herself in some situations but gets out of them. I did care for this book but someone who likes steampunk are far out there books will love this I hope you judge this for your self.
5.0 out of 5 stars Stenibelle: The 3rd Turn of the Shadow Tech Goddess 22 January 2017
By Lauren Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Stenibelle was a master at turning invisible, of fading into the shadows. Her mother had taught her and her sisters the skill, and Stenibelle was the best at it, with Lyra a close second. Her fade could fool sophisticated scanning systems and even arcane seeing eyes. Morgan reached out and seized her by her shirt. She pulled her close and bared her teeth. “It doesn’t work on me, Bel. I can see you plain as day. Now what? Now what are you going to do?” Stenibelle had no idea what to do.

If you had knowledge that somewhere out in space, another world with another you existed and lived out their life similar to yours—how would that affect you? In this case, Garcia shares a classic, yet very creative alternate version of Stenstrom—a character from another book in the League of Elder series called The Shadow Tech Goddess. This story follows right along with that one, but everything is slightly a bit different in this reality. For instance, Stenstrom was a man and Stenibelle is a woman. Lt Gwendolyn is Fleet personnel; however, she is the reason for Stenibelle’s loss of chair on the Seeker as well as her imprisonment. Professor Hannah Ben Shurlamp is a different character as well, searching for a different Elder planet than the one in the other story. With these characters being the same, yet adventures and personalities different—Garcia has an entertaining, shorter story. Readers who love his writing will really enjoy this one.

Stenibelle begins her journey imprisoned. Lt Gwendolyn is the reason for her loss of title, her dignity, her house and the hatred of some of her family members. After a visit from a benefactor, she is freed from prison and then provided a very specific task by a famous Professor Hannah Ben Shurlamp. This Professor has the money and the mind set to make things happen, so Stenibelle agrees to the task of finding a planet called Cammara—especially after she realizes that there is absolutely no way to get out of her predicament. She can either go back to prison, losing everything if she refuses the professor—or she can find this Elder planet called Cammara by jumping on the George Parr and finding the information from Caroline of Melaazar. Two people who claim to be her friends from an alternate reality, come to help her on her journey—also claiming that whatever she does in this reality will affect the outcome of others as well. Stenibelle is then faced with hospitilar Morgan-Jeterix, who shows her what fear truly is, knocking her down and suffocating her with the ultimate terror of who she truly is, the monster that comes out if she is not careful. She tells Stenibelle that if she can get up off of the ground, face that fear—then she can do anything. Fighting to get up, she understands that there is a lot to be lost—she has to complete her mission. Can Stenibelle find the information that she needs to provide to the Professor? Can she save her House of Belmont-South Tyrol?

Garcia writes with such a creative mind—everything is so different, original and totally entertaining and new. The story has superb character development and is written well. It is a bit shorter than the other books in the series, but there is not really a change in pace or fluidity. Everything is explained, easy to understand and can be read as a standalone—however, it would be beneficial to begin with The Shadow Tech Goddess to understand certain characters within this story and how they have changed from other realities. If you are a reader of fantasy and science fiction, this may be perfect for you. It is strongly advised that since this is classified as dark fantasy, it is not recommended for children or teens due to content.

A paperback copy of this book was purchased by Turning Another Page from the author. We provide a five-star rating for Stenibelle by Ren Garcia.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simply Awesome! 15 September 2015
By Melissa's Rambling - Published on Amazon.com
I love Stenibelle, she is awesome. She is so much more complex than I thought. When I was first reading the book I thought I was losing my mind, but no.... this book delves in alternate realities. And Stenibelle is an Extra-Planner Entity, meaning she exists on every plane!

Stenibelle's title in this book is Lady of Belmont, they call her Bel for short. Also, in the opening scenes she is in jail and I won't tell you why :)

She has some friends get her out of prison. They are A-Ram and Alesta, I fell in love with them later on in the book.

She is taken out of jail to work for an evil professor who is a force to be reckoned with herself. She sort of blackmails Bel, but isn't that always the case!

I like the author had graphics put into the book as well. They are brilliant. The book is full of floating rock cities, floating rock prisons, automatons, flying fleet vessels, and so much more.

When Bel finds out some of her alternate personalities she doesn't believe it at first and is shocked. I was shocked too!

I think a lot of people that love graphic novel and steampunk books would like this one.
