Product Description

Product Description

In the heart of London a terrible metamorphosis is taking place... After more than 150 years as the supreme power on the planet, the British Empire has become a corpulent, stagnating monster. At its heart lies Londinium Maximum, a city under a near-permanent cloud of noxious Smog. More than ever, the realm of Magna Britannia needs a saviour – a man like new Prime Minister, Devlin Valentine. But while London prepares for the launch of the Jupiter Station there are those who want this longed-for change to come about more quickly, people who are prepared to give evolution a helping hand. When a deadly legacy returns, Ulysses Quicksilver  finds himself drawn into that pit of despair known as Bedlam. With a dangerous masked vigilante stalking the streets, a monster from Jewish myth on the loose in the East End and rival gangs fighting for control of the city’s underworld there may be nothing Ulysses can do to prevent a catastrophic metamorphosis! Pax Britannia is an exciting newscience fiction series, set on an alternative Earth where the British Empire still reigns and steam technology rules.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this... 6 Nov 2009
This is a perfect commute read - it's pacy, easy to dip in and out of and the level of description really enables you to lose yourself in the Steampunk world of Pax Britannia London. Love the 007 style light touches with the hot female assistant, Ulysses' one-liners and Nimrod the butler (who I imagine as Vince Cable?!...odd) but there's still a good level of dark and intense stuff there too. I was reminded of Watchmen in places, and that can only be a good thing. Mr Green's PAX BRITANNIA series is building nicely...

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Fun 1 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This series from Jonathan Green is excellent! The first three books build a wonderfully strange, somewhat dystopian steampunk world.

I can highly recommend all the books in the series and can't wait to read them s each new one is published.

4.0 out of 5 stars Villains and Vigilantes in London Town 15 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ulysses Quicksilver is in a fairly bad place at the start of his fourth adventure; for one thing, he's still got an ape arm! Things are going to get worse before they get better, though; an old enemy is finally ready to unleash his latest evil scheme.

As usual, Green throws everything he can into the mix, including a rash of mutating citizens, the launch of a floating weather station, and a visit to the vice queen of London. It all rattles along, and as ever Ulysses and Nimrod are an engaging duo.

What really gives this particular installment a kick is the introduction of the armored vigilante Spring-Heeled Jack. He makes a fascinating ally for our hero, and a running joke about him trying to come with a name is great.

So, more stirring stuff from Green and his great alternate universe, and what's more it moves the metaplot along in interesting directions.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fast paced excitement from cover to cover. I love the world of Pax Britannia. Steampunk at its grungiest and yet I still wish I lived in Magna Britannia.
