The Immorality Engine Paperback

4 out of 5 (3 ratings)


Welcome to the bizarre and dangerous world of Victorian London, a city teetering on the edge of revolution.

Its people are ushering in a new era of technology, dazzled each day by new inventions.

Airships soar in the skies over the city, whilst ground trains rumble through the streets and clockwork automatons are programmed to carry out menial tasks in the offices of lawyers, policemen and journalists.

But beneath this shiny veneer of progress lurks a sinister side.

For this is also a world where lycanthropy is a rampant disease that plagues the dirty whorehouses of Whitechapel, where poltergeist infestations create havoc in old country seats, where cadavers can rise from the dead and where nobody ever goes near the Natural History Museum.

The Immorality Engine is the third in the Newbury and Hobbes series.

Third in the 'Newbury & Hobbes' series of novels. 'Steampunk' has seldom been so packed with strange events as this.Queen Victoria is on the Throne,but a different Victoria than the one we think we know. She sits in a darkened room,and is part human and part machine - like unto a spider in the middle of her web. There is a shadowy organization called 'The Bastion Society' who aim to take over the country with the assistance of manufactured creatures and armored machines. We have also a 'mad' doctor who is performing experiments which he hopes will duplicate human bodies.Into all this come Sir Maurice Newbury and Miss Veronica Hobbes who attempt to thwart these evil schemes,but who are the villains and who are the forces of good ? That is the question.A darker book that the two preceding it,but a good read for all that.
