About the Author

Stephen Hunt is a fantasy and science fiction author who lives in Spain and the UK. He is best known for his best-selling Jackelian fantasy series of novels from HarperCollins, also the publisher of J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis in the UK. The Jackelian world is a fantasy adventure set in a far-future Earth where the passage of time has erased almost all memory of our current world from history. Electricity is now unreliable and classed as a dark power, with many of the nations of the world existing at a Victorian level of development and relying on steam-power, mechanical nanotechnology and biotechnology to survive and prosper. It is a world of strange creatures, flashing blades, steammen servants, airship battles and high adventure. Each novel is written as a stand-alone work, but share the same world and many of the same characters who criss-cross between the novels (a technique shared with fellow British fantasy author Terry Pratchett and his Discworld series). Foreign language and international editions of the six novels of the Jackelian series have been sold to Tor Books (USA), Albin Michel (France), Verlagsgruppe Random House (Germany), Enterbrain Manga and Anime (Japan), Edições Saída de Emergência (Portugal), Paidós (Spain), AST (Russia), and the Anhui Literature and Art Publishing House (China). Stephen maintains his own web site over at www.StephenHunt.net and when he is not writing, he can be found indulging in such interests as cooking, gardening, collecting comic-books, and building his collections of genre novels.

A very interesting book that combines science fiction with a story of pre-industrialization characters and situations. It takes a very good story-teller to pull off this feat. The characters are well-drawn, likeable, and interesting. The storyline is realistic and easy to follow. This is a very good book, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
