A man without faith. A woman without hope.
My name is Aiden Fleischer, and today my assistant and I awoke on another planet. On Ptallaya, we are welcomed by the Yatsill. The creatures transform their society into a bizarre version of our own, and we find a new home beneath the world’s twin suns.
But there is a darkness in my soul, and as the two yellow globes set … A RED SUN ALSO RISES ... and with it comes an evil more horrifying than any on Earth.

"The usual superlatives for really clever fantasy (imaginative, mind-bending, phantasmagorical) aren't nearly big enough for this debut novel. With this one book, Hodder has put himself on the genre map..." ( Booklist)
"This is an exhilarating romp through a witty combination of nineteenth-century English fact and fiction. Mark Hodder definitely knows his stuff and has given us steam opera at its finest... A great, increasingly complex, plot, some fine characters, and invention that never flags! It gets better and better, offering clues to some of Victorian London's strangest mysteries. This is the best debut novel I have read in ages." (Michael Moorcock)
"Hodder has crafted a loving homage to the 19th-century novel with the barest tweaks for a 21st-century sensibility ... [A] fascinating adventure ... The pacing is as vintage as the vividly imagined grotesqueries of alien life, but the rewards for acclimating to the style are well worth the effort." ( Publishers Weekly)
"There are some great imaginative flourishes and excellent setpieces ... a steampunk fan favourite in the making" (Damien Walter SFX)
A thrilling, action-packed Victorian Science Fiction adventure.
