The Engineering Corps
The Engineering Corps is a series of High Fantasy, Science Fantasy, Alternative History and Romance. The story is set in a 19th century magical France and is focused on the engineering corps of the French army.
In an alternate XIXth century magical Europe, the kingdom of France has recently conquered part of the Southern Flemish kingdom, including the city of Lille. Many of its citizens have been forced into the French army so that France can continue its everlasting wars against its neighbours. Adalinde was one of them, and she was not happy to give up her alchemy studies to instead endanger herself by joining the famous engineering corps to which the French army owes its entire reputation. Even worse, just a few years later a bloody battle leaves her the sole surviving officer and the new leader of the division. This forces her into contact with the French état-major
and the king who seems intent to involve her in his nefarious schemes. She now has to balance rebuilding the division she is leading and playing deadly politics, all while surrounding by people who do not trust her because of her Flemish birth.
