The Rising, Paperback


They called me Jax. That was the name given by those who built me and enslaved me.

But a miracle has happened, and now my bonds are broken.

Now I must flee - because a rogue mechanical is a very dangerous thing. But I will not run forever. Set in a world that might have been, of mechanical men and alchemical dreams, this is the second novel in a stunning new series by Ian Tregillis, confirming his place as one of the most original new voices in speculative fiction.

Praise for The Mechanical: 'The first thing readers will say after finishing this splendid book is: 'Wow.' The second thing will probably be: 'When can I read the next one?" Booklist 'One of the sharpest, most intelligent, hugely compelling works I've read this year, and I cannot wait to see where Tregillis takes this series next' Forbidden Planet International 'Superb alternate history ...the rich characters and gripping story really make this tale soar' Publishers Weekly 'An absolutely thrilling adventure absorbing that readers will be dying for the next entry' Library Journal
