Lovereading view...

A steampunk adventure which should appeal to fantasy and science fiction fans too. Slightly tongue-in-cheek and written with humour and great description, it is a well-paced tale that gives plenty of nods to the early classics in the genre, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Jules Verne and the like. Taken as straightforward adventure it’s undemanding and fun, good, old-fashioned stuff.

If you like Mark Hodder you might also like to read books by George Mann, Ben Aaronovitch and Michael Moorcock.

Reviews

'The usual superlatives for really clever fantasy (imaginative, mind-bending, phantasmagorical) aren't nearly big enough for this debut novel. With this one book, Hodder has put himself on the genre map...' Booklist

'This is an exhilarating romp through a witty combination of nineteenth-century English fact and fiction. Mark Hodder definitely knows his stuff and has given us steam opera at its finest... A great, increasingly complex, plot, some fine characters, and invention that never flags! It gets better and better, offering clues to some of Victorian London's strangest mysteries. This is the best debut novel I have read in ages.' -- Michael Moorcock

'Hodder has crafted a loving homage to the 19th-century novel with the barest tweaks for a 21st-century sensibility ... [A] fascinating adventure ... The pacing is as vintage as the vividly imagined grotesqueries of alien life, but the rewards for acclimating to the style are well worth the effort.' Publishers Weekly

'There are some great imaginative flourishes and excellent setpieces ... a steampunk fan favourite in the making' -- Damien Walter SFX

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
