Read full description of the books:I must say, that was a pretty rollicking alternate-history adventure!
A meteor or some such falling heavenly body strikes the earth at the end of the 1800's. All technological progress halts, and the world is thrown screaming back into the Middle Ages as nuclear winter makes coastal locations uninhabitable. So the British Empire moves itself to India, and becomes the leading world-governor.
This is perhaps the best explanation for a world existing in a quasi-steampunk situation, dontcha think? Yeah, me too.
The characters are awesome, if you can get your head around the "every main character is a bad-ass mofo" mentality. I had no problem getting around that personally. It reminds me of my own life, in which the main character is, coincidentally, a bad-ass mo-fo. (That's me.)
So, for all y'all steampunk-erites and alt-Britain-ophiles, give this book a read, sahibs and memsahibs!
