What is the secret of the clockwork zombies?!
Clockwork zombies, criminal families, fallen gods, an ancient horror thirsting for vengeance – when trouble comes looking for Jacob Burn, it doesn’t do half measures.
The failed zeppelin pilot and outcast may have saved the city of Veridon from destruction, but that doesn’t mean it’s grateful. Burn now finds himself on his own, on the wrong side of the law and on borrowed time as he is appointed to investigate the rise of the ‘cog-dead.’
Wrapped in a stunning cover from comic book legend Greg Staples, Tim Akers’ fantastic hard-boiled Steampunk-Clockpunk story is a thrilling mix of rich characterisation and dramatic action set in a detailed and disturbing world that leaps off the page.
“The book is fantastically imaginative, the dialogue pitch perfect, the story screaming to be an Alex Proyas film.” – Lou Anders on Heart of Veridon
About the Author
Tim Akers was born in deeply rural North Carolina, the only son of a theologian. He has been recovering in Chicago ever since, where he lives with his wife, his German Shepherd, and a healthy respect for an internally consistent narrative.
