Secrets of the Fire Sea
by Stephen Hunt
Tor, $27.99, 439pp
Release Date: March 27, 2012

This is Hunt’s fourth steam-punk novel.

Jago is a steampunk island, centuries old, whose technology is failing. The religion has no gods but logic, though the steam-men did worship the Circle. Revolution, invasion, and intrigue are on their way.

Jago is the only home Hannah has ever known as the ward of the Archbishop, but the assassination of her guardian throws the switch for mayhem. Though Hannah is a child, her life is endangered by the belief she knows her guardian’s secret. Hannah must solve the intrigues and secrets to save her world.

Wildly imaginative, with everything you can ask of a steampunk yarn played out against civil war, layers of treachery, murder and even love in surprising circumstances. You'll get carried away, so enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
