The Doomsday Vault: A Novel of the Clockwork Empire
In a clockwork Britannia, Alice's prospects are slim. At 21, her age and her unladylike interest in automatons have sealed her fate as an undesirable marriage prospect. But a devastating plague sends Alice off in a direction beyond the pale - towards a clandestine organisation, mad inventors, life-altering secrets and into the arms of an intrepid fiddle-playing pilot. The steampunk phenomenon has grown increasingly popular in recent years with this new series acting as an exciting addition to a growing genre.
