Secrets of the Fire Sea
The isolated island of Jago is the only home Hannah Conquest has ever known. But her carefree existence comes to an abrupt halt when her guardian, Archbishop Alice Grey, is brutally murdered. Someone desperately wants to suppress a secret kept by the archbishop, and if the attempts on Hannah's own life are any indication, the killer believes that Alice passed the knowledge to her ward before her head was separated from her neck.
Meanwhile, a deadly power struggle is brewing on Jago. And as Hannah digs deeper into the mystery Alice left behind, assisted by two rather different detectives, she must race to unravel a chain of ancient riddles in order to save not just her own life, but her island home itself!
Secrets of the Fire Sea is a rollicking tale of high adventure and derring-do set in Stephen Hunt's Victorian-style clockwork world filled with steammen and aliens, fantastical creatures and dastardly villains...and some remarkable heroes that steampunk fans will cheer for.
