Overview

In a time when the Industrial Revolution has escalated into all-out warfare, Mad Science rules the world… with mixed success.

With the help of Krosp, Emperor of All Cats, Agatha has escaped from the massive airship known as Castle Wulfenbach. After crashing their escape dirigible, Agatha and Krosp fall in with Master Payne’s Circus of Adventure, a traveling troupe of performers dedicated to staging Heterodyne shows — dramatizations of the exploits of Bill and Barry Heterodyne and their allies — who are unaware of Agatha’s connection to the Heterodyne line.

Pursued by the ruthless Baron Klaus Wulfenbach, his handsome son Gil, and their minions (not to mention Othar Tryggvassen, Gentleman Adventurer), Agatha hides in plain sight among the circus folk, servicing their clanks and proving herself adept in performing the role of Lucrezia Mongfish, nemesis to — and later wife of — Barry Heterodyne. She also begins training under Zeetha, swordmistress and princess of the lost city of Skifander . Together, Agatha, Krosp, and the performers travel across the treacherous Wasteland of war-torn Europa, towards Mechanicsburg, and the ancestral home of the Heterodynes — Castle Heterodyne.

But with many perils standing in her way — including Wulfenbach’s crack troops, mysterious Geisterdamen, savage Jägermonsters, and the fabled Storm King — it’s going to take more than a spark of Mad Science for Agatha to get through…

From Phil and Kaja Foglio, creators of the multiple WCCA and Hugo Award-winning webcomic Girl Genius, comes Agatha H and the Clockwork Princess, a gaslamp fantasy filled to bursting with Adventure! Romance! And Mad Science!

    Love the web comic, loved the book too!

    The second book in the series of novel adaptations of the Hugo award winning Girl Genius webcomic (web graphic novel?) has all the charm and humor of the original. They are great companions to each other (the comic and the books) - after reading the book I went back to look at the other again.
    The stories take place in an alternate, "steampunk" world where the Earth (Europe in particular) is ruled by mad scientists (sparks), most of whom are terribly evil and all of which are ruthless, and tells the story of Agatha, who discovers not only that she is a spark, but that she is the offspring of such famous parents that she has to fight to keep from being swept away in huge waves of politics, intrigue, and mad science.
    The world that has been created by the Foglios is deep, wide, complex and lots of fun. The first book starts with a scene of major (but confusing) foreshadowing that has yet to be reached even in the comic, but they evidently have had the ending worked out from the start. What a cool story.
    Get the books, but read the comics also to see Phil's delightful artwork. These would make a cool series of movies someday.
