About The Book:
STENIBELLE by Ren Garcia Pages: 184 Date published: July 18, 2015 Publisher: Loconeal
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.

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.
