Christian Religion has been replaced by engineering sects, with followers of as many different leaders as world religion has today. The highest position held by the Messiah of the Church of the Great Conductor and people are encouraged to attend worship in the style of engineering lectures.
A Royal Society exists to police the engineers and hand out punishment where needed. A work force of "Stokers" fuel the city, treated as "dirty Folk" they were lured away from their Swamp lands by the need for engine stokers.
School friends, Isambard, James Holman and Nicholas Thorne, meet once more and become embroiled in the King's new scheme to protect London from the marauding Swamp Dragons, however they soon learn of a more sinister reason behind the King's urgency to build such a structure.
This is a big book at over 500 pages long, but it is split into three very readable parts. Part two cleverly gives all the background to the current situation and part three builds the tension to a compelling read and leads the way to book 2# in the series. I would recommend this to fans of Steampunk, and those who like the industrial era of England who are open minded to an alternative fantasy underlined story arc.
I loved everything in this book, I mean dragons. I love dragons. DRAAAGONS! And Vampires, including a Vampire King and like flesh eating people type things, and there was so much awesome in this book and it was a cool world, 19th century and all that. I really didn't want to leave the vivid world created.
The plot was intriguing and kept you reading, it was pretty hard to put down, and the character development was expertly woven in to the plot and a joy to watch. The backstorys and the history and everything are written in very well, weaving in to the plot without disrupting the pace and flow. Didn't want it to end really, next book please!

The infamous madness of King George takes on a far more sinister element in this book, and the end result is amazeballs. Intrigue runs high, and it’s hard to know who to trust among the characters sometimes. I found it hard to get into the formal language at first, but it's worth persevering.
