AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Aubrey Fitzwilliam, renegade and traitor. Instead of clearing his name in Albion, Aubrey has chosen to pursue his enemy, Dr Mordecai Tremaine, deep into the heart of enemy territory. What he uncovers about Dr Tremaine's plans promises to change the course of the war and the future of humanity itself. A hideous combination of electrical science and soul-shattering magic is bringing the world far closer to the edge of the abyss than anyone apart from Aubrey realises.

Aubrey must risk everything, or there'll be no world left to save.'

Notes

  • Steampunk Note: The world of this series, though in many ways different to our own, is clearly inspired heavily by turn-oft-the-century Britain and Europe. The focus on magic in combination with advanced mechanical technology in an anachronistic setting places the series as a work of what we might call steampunk fantasy or magical steampunk.
  • Other formats: Also sound recording.
