A tale of high adventure and derring-do set in the same Victorian-style world as the acclaimed The Court of the Air and The Rise of the Iron Moon.

The isolated island of Jago is the only place Hannah Conquest has ever known as home. Encircled by the magma ocean of the Fire Sea, it was once the last bastion of freedom when the world struggled under the tyranny of the Chimecan Empire during the age-long winter of the cold-time.

But now this once-shining jewel of civilization faces an uncertain future as its inhabitants emigrate to greener climes, leaving the basalt plains and raging steam storms far behind them. For Hannah and her few friends, the streets of the island's last occupied underground city form a vast, near-deserted playground. But Hannah's carefree existence comes to an abrupt halt when her guardian, Archbishop Alice Gray, is brutally murdered in her own cathedral.

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 of it onto her ward before her saintly head was separated from her neck.

But it soon becomes clear that there is more at stake than the life of one orphan. A deadly power struggle is brewing on Jago, involving rival factions in the senate and the island's most powerful trading partner. And it's beginning to look as if the deaths of Hannah's archaeologist parents shortly after her birth were very far from accidental.

Soon the race is on for Hannah and her friends to unravel a chain of hidden riddles and follow them back to their source to save not just her own life, but her island home itself.

Hey there, sorry for the late reply.

I would very happily affiliate with your steampunk group! And I would happily associate with either of them as I believe the author of the Jackalien books is actually a massive fan of Spain.

Warm Regards,
Ingram

Sorry for the delay - normal operation has been resumes. Apparently when people requested to join the group... well it didn't decide to inform me, plus the log for the group doesn't even show up the request occuring. I'm going to have a look through the options and make sure I haven't done something stupid.

Not wishing to appear useless or anything but... I haven't been able to find anything that suggests the option 'Turn on Membership Acceptance'. I've been able to manually add people to the invite list but since I plan to have an open membership policy it would be better to have it changed.

This might be more common than I first fought, since it would nicely explain why I was immediately rejected from access to the Dr Steel group.

So just to reiterate. If you want to join this group you are very welcome to do so, drop me a quick note and I'll make it happen.
