Publisher's Summary

Late Extra! Bomb outrage in London!
When his beloved is killed in a terrorist atrocity committed by the sinister Bookman, young poet Orphan becomes enmeshed in a web of secrets and lies. His quest to uncover the truth takes him from the hidden catacombs of London on the brink of revolution, through pirate-infested seas, to the mysterious island that may hold the secret to the origin not only of the shadowy Bookman, but of Orphan himself....


What the Critics Say

"This is a steampunk gem...Bring on a sequel, Tidhar! I'm craving to know what happens after the ending!" (SFF World)
"The Bookman pokes at the fat and waddled body of steampunk with its walking cane and leaves it on the roadside with its fresh take on Victorian London without losing any steam on its way" (Loudmouth Man)
