The Rising : Book Two of the Alchemy Wars Paperback / softback

Part of the Alchemy War series


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 . . . so absorbing that readers will be dying for the next entry'Library Journal
