Product description

Product Description

In the heart of London lies the Engine Ward, a district forged in coal and steam, where the great Engineering Sects vie for ultimate control of the country. For many, the Ward is a forbidding, desolate place, but for Nicholas Thorne, the Ward is a refuge. He has returned to London under a cloud of shadow to work for his childhood friend, the engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Deep in the Ward's bowels, Nicholas can finally escape his strange affliction – the thoughts of animals that crowd his head. But seeing Brunel interact with his mechanical creations, Nicholas is increasingly concerned that his friend may be succumbing to the allure of his growing power. That power isn't easily cast aside, and the people of London need Brunel to protect the streets from the prehistoric monsters that roam the city.

King George III has approved Brunel's ambitious plan to erect a Wall that would shut out the swamp dragons and protect the city. But in secret, the King cultivates an army of Sunken: men twisted into flesh-eating monsters by a thirst for blood and lead. Only Nicholas and Brunel suspect that something is wrong, that the Wall might play into a more sinister purpose--to keep the people of London trapped inside.

5.0 out of 5 stars This one blew me away! 26 February 2016
By AmazonCustomer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a fully-immersive, intelligently written steampunk story that combines intrigue with beautiful writing and dense storytelling that is so expertly done it's almost literary in feel. At the onset, we are in an alternate history London, and the author expertly reveals this new world layer by layer, rather then dumping it on you all at once or talking down to the reader; this approach only further added elegance to the writing style and mystique to the reading experience. All the characters are multi-faceted, from the good guys with bad sides and the bad guys with good sides. It is true, in the best stories, even the villains are heros in their own eyes. You will not read many books so brilliantly written at this one. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars and the mention of historical figures like Charles Babbage 13 October 2015
By Caitlin Farley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was my first foray into Steampunk. There’s a generous mix of Alternate History in this book alongside the Steampunk elements, this is primarily noticeable in the ‘dragons’, the Industrial Religious sects, and the mention of historical figures like Charles Babbage.

The infamous madness of King George takes on a far more sinister element in this book, and the end result is amazeballs. Intrigue runs high, and it’s hard to know who to trust among the characters sometimes. I found it hard to get into the formal language at first, but it's worth persevering.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far... so good! 13 October 2014
By mareenz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Full disclosure - I am half way through the book, but loving every hour I get to spend with it. The world of "The Sunken" is familiar enough to trigger my own memories and thoughts about London, but foreign enough to keep me interested. The book has changed the way I look at trains forever. I also really enjoy the multiple perspectives woven throughout as the mystery unfolds. My only criticism (and this with the caveat that I haven't yet finished) is that the characters are mostly men - with very little from the perspective of female characters. I'm looking forward to see how the story evolves, in this book and the rest of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars steampunk and dinosaurs. 15 February 2015

This was a pretty good book. I didn't always buy into the character's motivations as strong opinions were changed quickly to fit the story. Shows promise.
