Worldshaker

Richard Harland

Col lives on the Upper Decks of the juggernaut Worldshaker, a mobile city as big as a mountain. He has been chosen as next Supreme Commander - but then a girl Filthy escaped from Below appears in his cabin. ‘Don’t let 'em take me!’ she begs.Will he hand her over, or will he break all the rules?Col’s safe, elite world is about to fall apart.‘Worldshaker is a terrific adventure, full of sly humour, weird and wonderful characters, and plot twists I never saw coming. More, more!’ Ian Irvine'I loved Worldshaker! A claustrophobic setting of rivets, iron and steam, rustling silks and stiff collars and even stiffer manners; dark, twisting, bustling, brilliant. I was very, very glum when it came to an end.‘ D.M. Cornish'I was captivated from the beginning.’ Samantha, 15

Review

When your grandfather is the Supreme Commander of the juggernaut city Worldshaker, you’re not expected to fraternise with the lower classes. And being the well-brought up boy that he is, Colbert Porpentine wouldn’t dream of making friends with the subhuman classes known as Filthies that work deep in the bowels of Worldshaker. But when he discovers a Filthy girl hiding in his room, Col finds himself thrown into a situation beyond his control. As Col becomes entangled in Riff the Filthy’s plans to overthrow the upper classes he begins to unravel the awful history of Worldshaker and his family’s part in it.

Richard Harland has created a wonderfully brooding world in *Worldshake*r that is part Dickens, part steam-punk and will appeal to those 12 and up who like their fantasy a little on the dark side.
