Publisher's Summary

Jacob Burn: pilot, criminal and disgraced son of one of the founding families of the ancient city of Veridon. When an old friend delivers to him a strange artefact, Jacob’s world crashes down around him as he runs not only from the law but also from those who were once friends. But even as the array of machines and strange creatures stalk him through the streets of Veridon, something even more sinister and dangerous makes its move against him, an entity that will make Jacob question everything he thought he knew about himself and the city.

Great entry in the Steam Punk genre

I've recently read a few books in the steam punk genre, and I found this book to be one of the best.

It's very easy to draw comparisons to China Miéville's Perdido Street Station. A rather dark undertone pervades the entire book, with interesting and often bizarre encounters with the unknown.

I was a little disappointed with the climax of the novel, but the overall journey made it well worth the read.

Jay Snyder gave an awesome performance as the reader.

I should also note if you haven't read Perdido Street Station I suggest you get it after finishing Heart of Veridon.
