AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In a fortieth-century America of ancient kingdoms with opulent courts, hereditary engineering guilds, and rigid class distinction in warfare, a centuries-old balance of power is shattered by a few dozen Australian infiltrators. Against a rich backdrop of war, chivalry, conspiracy, and a diesel-powered arms race, a dangerous secret alliance has formed. Now the unlikely trio of an airlord, an abbess, and a fugitive are joined together in a desperate race against time to stop the ultimate doomsday machine from being launched.'

Notes

  • Dedication: For my father, the archetypical Scottish engineer
  • Book two of a revised Greatwinter Trilogy.
  • Steampunk Note: Though perhaps less strictly steampunk than other works, Voices in the Light shares some features that are resonant with the style. In particular, the creation of information technology in a world without the technological sophistication to do so electronically. This novel in particular begins the resurrection of familiar technologies, bringing it closer to steampunk offshoots such as dieselpunk.
