But when his daughter Eva is stricken by the same magical disease that robbed him of his late wife, Michael devotes himself to finding a cure, no matter the cost.Ezael Emmet, minor lord and wielder of clandestine magics, has his own designs for Eva, and unbeknownst to Michael, those plans demand that the disease run its course. They strike a bargain that trades Michael's life for hers. What neither expects is for his consciousness to become trapped within his greatest invention, a steam-driven mechanical man.To free himself from his invention and save the life of his daughter, Michael must bide his time and play the part of the machine until he discovers a way to cure them both. But magic and spells are unlike steam and gears, and with each day that passes, there is a little less man left in the machine. Will Michael find the magic he needs before there is nothing left of him but lifeless metal in the shape of a man?


My Name Is Michael Bishop Reviews

  • H.M. Jones

    T.R. Goodman is quickly becoming one of my favorite sci-fi/fantasy/steampunk authors. His otherworldly stories are infused with humanity in a way that one quickly cares and wants to know more about his characters. A truly talented writer, Goodman creates characters who are neither black nor white, neither likable nor loathable, but very human, flawed and interesting.My Name Is Michael Bishop is a book that deals with very tough issues: loss, mourning and the lengths people will go for their chil [...]

    This fantasy is a RPG-like delightful episode.The world in which we're invited is immediately engrossing, we're in a rich setting with a familiar and yet original feeling. We have sages and priestesses, dark magic and technological contraptions, apothecaries who sell plants for spells, we have lords at their manor, and we have picturesque carriages, and scientific endeavors. We have power of magic and fear and disdain for it. The characters and the world are familiar, they share many elements wi [...]

    What would you do to save the people you love? To what lengths would you be willing to go? These are quesitons that both the protagonist and the antagonist must answer in My Name is Michael Bishop, and the reader is left to wonder if the difference between good and evil is simply circumstantial. Goodman crafts his characters with care, sewing humanity into stale sci-fi/fantasy/steampunk tropes, and making readers care about the lives of each one of the vastly individual peoples that populate Goo [...]

    T.R. Goodman's Michael Bishop is one determined tinker. When a magical attempt to save his daughter's life goes awry, Michael ends up trapped inside his failed mechanical man and a prisoner of the man who lent him the magic. He continues to focus one-hundred-percent on his quest to save his child, and the resulting quest leads him into one of the sweetest stories of parental affection, loyalty, friendship and redemption ever.I enjoyed this story and think anyone who loves steampunk, good fantasy [...]

    This was a great story of a father's love and what he's willing to do to save his child. Although it was well-written, there was some serious lack of editing, especially in the second half of the book. Read it for the story, not for the editing and you'll be great.
