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.
