Description

Mit Volldampf voraus!

Amerika kurz nach dem Bürgerkrieg: Es sollte Dr. Leveticus Blues größte und ruhmreichste Erfindung sein, doch der »Boneshaker« verursachte eine Katastrophe. Bei seinem Testlauf wurde ein mysteriöses Gas freigesetzt, dass die Bewohner Seattles in seelenlose Kreaturen verwandelte, woraufhin die vergiftete Stadt und ihre Bewohner durch eine riesige Mauer isoliert wurden. Sechzehn Jahre später macht sich Briar Wilkes, Dr. Blues Witwe, in einem Luftschiff auf den Weg nach Seattle, um dem Geheimnis des »Boneshakers« auf die Spur zu kommen.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 31, 2009 – Maternal love faces formidable challenges in this stellar steampunk tale. In an alternate 1880s America, mad inventor Leviticus Blue is blamed for destroying Civil War–era Seattle. When Zeke Wilkes, Blue’s son, goes into the walled wreck of a city to clear his father’s name, Zeke’s mother, Briar Wilkes, follows him in an airship, determined to rescue her son from the toxic gas that turns people into zombies (called rotters and described in gut-churning detail). When Briar learns that Seattle still has a mad inventor, Dr. Minnericht, who eerily resembles her dead husband, a simple rescue quickly turns into a thrilling race to save Zeke from the man who may be his father. Intelligent, exceptionally well written and showcasing a phenomenal strong female protagonist who embodies the complexities inherent in motherhood, this yarn is a must-read for the discerning steampunk fan.
