"Aboard the Great Iron Horse" is a fast-paced serial adventure that picks up where Sedgwick's bestselling fantasy/steampunk series "The Tinkerer's Daughter" left off. A reading of the earlier books is not necessary to enjoy this new series but may provide added insight into certain characters and history.
Barreling through their post-apocalyptic world in a massive steam locomotive, River and her companions -the steam-powered ape named Socrates and his crew of warriors, miscreants, and genetic anomalies- travel from one unpredictable adventure to another.
On their first outing, the crew encounters a bizarre cult of isolationists and their strange "Clockwork God." Meanwhile, several crew members have gone missing, and tensions are rising as mutineers conspire to overthrow Socrates and destroy the train. As the conflict comes to a boil, a power more ancient and sinister than anything they ever imagined threatens to destroy them all.
This is book one of a 5-book series, and a follow-up to the AMZ best-selling "Tinkerer's Daughter" trilogy.
