Cedar Hunt and his odd band of adventurers have set forth to reclaim the pieces of the arcane Holder--a weapon made up of several metals, each with its own dread power--in order to keep it out of the wrong hands. Now they have come through a terrible blizzard to Des Moines, Iowa--a booming city that hides some horrifying secrets.

From official release/information:

Product Description: In steam age America, men, monsters, machines, and magic battle to claim the same scrap of earth and sky. In this madness, one man struggles to keep his humanity, his honor, and his hell-bent mission intact.

Bounty hunter and lycanthrope Cedar Hunt vowed to track down all seven pieces of the Holder--a strange device capable of deadly destruction. And, accompanied by witch Mae Lindson and the capricious Madder brothers, he sets out to do just that. But the crew is forced to take refuge in the frontier town of Des Moines, Iowa, when a glacial storm stops them in their tracks. The town, under mayor Killian Vosbrough, is ruled with an iron fist--and plagued by the steely Strange, creatures that pour through the streets like the unshuttered wind.

But Cedar soon learns that Vosbrough is mining cold copper for the cataclysmic generators he's manufacturing deep beneath Des Moines, bringing the search for the Holder to a halt. Chipping through ice, snow, and bone-chilling bewitchment to expose a dangerous plot, Cedar must stop Vosbrough and his scheme to rule the land and sky.
