Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the Mirror Empires, where reality is distorted, and war threatens to engulf the world. It is 1898, and soldiers armed with the latest weapons clash with the unstoppable power of the Sky Lords and their aerial armadas in new and uncharted realms. 

Jack never expected to spend his 19th birthday crashing a stolen flying machine into the middle of a war. But when he saw soldiers with bolt-action rifles up against an advanced species, he knew he’d found something incredible. As they storm Khartoum’s fortified city walls, Jack and the soldiers are transported to an impossible version of their own world. One where great cities rise up into the sky and are endlessly circled by flying warships crewed by beings never seen before.

As they set out to explore this strange land filled with violent tribes and vicious creatures, they uncover a brutal regime that takes slaves and technology from every mirror world they can find. Known as the Sky Lords, they are protected by legions of warriors who travel the skies in their flying warships, and they will stop at nothing to destroy the newcomers and retake the city that links the Mirror Empires together. It is a world where the rules of science and technology have been smashed to their very core.

Very good story

I received this audio book for free in exchange for my honest review. This is a great story complete with sound effects. The writing and narration makes it play out like a movie in your head. You won't be disappointed with this one. Enjoy!

Jolly good show chaps!

Wow, what a great performance! This was more than just a regular narrated book, it was like having a movie on the tv but with no picture!
Nigel narrates it brilliantly, but he’s accompanied by a barrage of sound effects and musical enhancements... such a great show! I know sound effects aren’t to everyone’s taste, but this goes beyond just ‘sounds effects’ and deserves to be heard!
The story is really good too, like a cross between Indiana Jones and Stargate! Looking forward to the follow up!!
This is my honest opinion of a free review copy.

A brilliant overall audio experience.

This is the first audiobook I’ve listened to that is jam packed with sound effects which adds brilliantly to the enjoyment of the story.

The book is well written by Michael G. Thomas and the narration by Nigel Peever was awesomely good. His vast array of voices perfectly complements this British Colonial fantasy adventure, especially the Colonel.

This novel is akin to a 19th century version of Stargate SG1, so fans will love it.

It is based upon the use of an orb that acts as a portal which connects other worlds or dimensions, resulting in the trapped adventurers battling to survive, escape enslavement and even avoiding their potential deaths. All in the hope of finding a way to return safely back home to their own world.

So sit back and enjoy this delightfully enhanced audio adventure.
