In some Worlds, Society depends on Technology to expand its horizons. In the Victorian world of the Wonder, Magic is the leading light. It powers an Empire through an Industrial Revolution towards boundless possibilities, including the invasion and colonisation of any neighbours who may have reserves of Magic themselves. In the follow-up to Blood Red, heroes and villains are forced together to defend their world against a smoke belching threat believed extinct for centuries. Despite the use of ancient magic and unlikely allies, a far-flung colony is forced to its knees as betrayal and treachery spread like a virus on both sides of an old war.
About the Author
James Devonshire was born and raised South London, from which he escaped using a mixture of science fiction and fantasy in any medium he could grasp. Over the last few shameful decades, he accidentally became a hardened TV professional and award-winning script writer, developing a grubby sitcom for an American network, shorts shown in dingy English pubs and glittering international film festivals and full length features with geek favourites attached. He decided to create the world of The Wonder as a novel when he discovered the reader’s imagination had both the cheapest and richest effects budget.
