The Lovereading4Kids comment

By Richard Harland, award winning fantasy author and writer of steampunk fiction (the recipient of five Aurealis awards), this is the follow-up to the thought-provoking adventure story - Worldshaker, which was also a World Book Day Recommended Read. Liberator is an action-packed adventure story in which freedom fights to overcome tyranny. With short 'leave you on a knife-edge' chapters it's the sort of read that even the most reluctant teen reader will really enjoy. This shattering conclusion shows Richard Harland at his vivid, energetic best.

Synopsis

Liberator by Richard Harland

In this sequel to Worldshaker the Filthies are in control. Violence simmers just under the surface; supplies of coal are fast diminishing, the acts of a mysterious saboteur are causing hostility and the Imperialist powers are massing for war. Col and Riff's relationship is pushed to the limit as they do all in their power to preserve the fragile peace.

Reviews

Praise for Worldshaker:

“A page-turning, pulse-pounding read” - Kirkus Review

Worldshaker is a punchy, thought-provoking novel....a pacy story” - Caroline Horn

About the Author

Richard Harland

Richard Harland was born in the north of England in the middle of the coldest
winter ever recorded. He moved to Australia on a university scholarship, fell in love
with it and stayed. Richard loves writing fantasy and science fiction for adults and
children, and has won five Aurealis awards for his novels, the Wolf Kingdom
quartet and The Black Crusade, and for his short stories.

Richard always had plenty of ideas for fantasy novels, but fell into a bad case of writer's block that lasted 25 years. he admits to having 30 unfinished manuscripts still lying in the bottom cupboard.

Richard says, ‘Worldshaker came from a dream in which I fell through a slot in the
ground, down past endless floors of machinery, metal pipes and impossibly
cramped living spaces. It took me fifteen years to develop all the details of the
world inspired by that glimpse. By the time I finally sat down to write, the story
was just bursting to come out.’

The concluding part of Worldshaker, Liberator took rather less time to write. In fact it came out in a 6 month rush. Richard Says, 'I love the downhill toboggan ride when a story and characters take charge and carry me along. It always happens when I get close to the climax of a novel, but with Liberator it began before I was even halfway through. What a ride!'
