An Awesome YA Steampunk Series for Christmas
Have you hung the wreath on your front door yet? Decorated the fireplace with stockings? (Or, perhaps, pulled out that space heater you use every year?) One thing you don’t want to miss is snagging a really cool ya steampunk series for Christmas!
London is hunting again. Emerging from its hiding place in the hills, the great Traction City is chasing a terrified little town across the wastelands. Soon London will feed.
In the attack, Tom Natsworthy is flung from the speeding city with a murderous scar-faced girl. They must run for their lives through the wreckage — and face a terrifying new weapon that threatens the future of the world.
BTW, a good tip-off is when Peter Jackson has decided to turn it into a movie. (Seen any other good steampunk movies??)
With the great Traction City of London completely destroyed, Tom Natsworthy and Hester Shaw travel across the world, trading with other airships and adventuring on the exciting and exotic routes of the Bird Roads.
When their little scrapyard aircraft is pursued by rocket-firing gunships, the ice city of Anchorage offers them sanctuary. But as Tom and Hester soon discover, it is no safe refuge. Devastated by plague in recent years and haunted by ghosts and madness, Anchorage is headed for the Dead Continent of North America.
It’s a perilous course, one that will take them directly into a firestorm of danger and conflict.
The mighty engines of Anchorage have been rusted and dead for years. The derelict city no longer roams the Ice Wastes, but has settled on the edge of the land that was once America.
Tom Natsworthy and Hester Shaw are happy in the safety of a static settlement, but their daughter, Wren, is desperate for adventure. When a dangerously charming submarine pirate offers her a chance to escape, Wren doesn’t think twice about leaving her home and her parents behind.
But the pirate wants something in return — Wren must steal the mysterious Tin Book. To do so will ignite a conflict that could tear the whole world apart.
A Darkling Plain
London is a radioactive ruin.
Tom and Wren discover that the old predator city hides an awesome secret that could bring an end to the war. But as they risk their lives in its dark underbelly, time is running out.
Alone and far away, Hester faces a fanatical enemy who possesses the weapons and the will to destroy the entire human race.
This definitely looks like a great ya steampunk series for Christmas to give as a gift…even if that gift is to yourself!
