About the Author
C. Craig R. McNeil was brought up on a farm just outside Stranraer. He moved to Edinburgh in 1996 where he wrote his first (unreleased) short stories. His first major book, An Atlantean Triumvirate, was followed by Ghosts of the Past and The Centre Cannot Hold. This trilogy was quickly followed by The Pillars of Britain, Foundations of the Reich and Cracks in the Pillars. He now lives in Dunfermline, Scotland and writes books, bringing his alternative fantasy to an ever growing audience. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

An excellent debut from a young author, full of originality, action pace and plot.
I highly recommend this to readers of alternate history, war novels and those who enjoy discovering new talented writers.
As with any self published work, there are a few spelling errors etc, but it does not damage the enjoyment, and really should not put anyone off a debut novel of such depth.
A bargain at this kindle price.
I have purchased all of the triumvirate books, have read them end to end, and have not regretted a bit of it.
Is it a perfect Tolkien moment? No. But if you're a fan of rip-roaring gunslinging alternate timeline adventure, it's a damn good light-hearted holiday read.
Good heavy action, with a pretty female boffin, a spook, and an action hero as the three main leads all doing their part for the British Empire. Lots of Atlantean Technology, flying battleships and unsporting Johnny Foreigners of various types thrown into the mix.
An absolute bargain of a series.
Will be interesting to see how this pans out. In terms of the USA, it's interesting they attacking the UK in this book (spoiler) when they had drawn up plans to invade Britain in the '30's.

needs a good editor to blue pencil out a shed load of unnecessary text

There are much better steam punk novels set in the British Empire. This just did not grab me, I read the first 20 or so pages then gave up. Read morePublished on 27 Jan. 2012 by Doug
