A World Book Day 'Recommended Read' for 2011
This is a brilliant tale of revolution, of adventure that will hook readers from the very first page. With plot twists that you’re never expecting, wonderful characters that jump off the page and some rather weird and wonderful humour , this ‘steampunk’ adventure is set aboard the huge ship-city Worldshaker, where the elite live on the top decks while the 'Filthies' toil below, powering the massive engines. Col lives on the upper deck and he has been chosen as next Supreme Commander but when one of the ‘filthies’, a girl, a bit younger than him escapes and hides in his room Col is forced to make a shattering decision that will change the lives of everyone on board. His safe, elite world is about to fall apart.
A message from the author's editor at Templar:
"Already an experienced fantasy writer, Richard's incredible imagination has constructed an alternative history where, after the revolution and respression, Europe has become a wasteland and the great powers roam the earth in giant juggernauts. The ruling elite live in comfort on the top decks, while the 'filthies' power the giant engines down 'below'. Richard's style of writing really brought the characters alive for me, capturing the stuffy formality of the top decks and the sweat and grime of 'below'. Even better there's a sequel on the way!"
That sequel is out now and it's called Liberator - click here !
