Ages 13+
In the early days of the Civil War, rumors of gold in the frozen Klondike brought hordes of newcomers to the Pacific Northwest. Anxious to compete, Russian prospectors commissioned inventor Leviticus Blue to create a great machine that could mine through Alaska’s ice. Thus was Dr. Blue’s Incredible Bone-Shaking Drill Engine born.

But on its first test run the Boneshaker went terribly awry, destroying several blocks of downtown Seattle and unearthing a subterranean vein of blight gas that turned anyone who breathed it into the living dead.

Now it is sixteen years later, and a wall has been built to enclose the devastated and toxic city. Just beyond it lives Blue’s widow, Briar Wilkes. Life is hard with a ruined reputation and a teenaged boy to support, but she and Ezekiel are managing. Until Ezekiel undertakes a secret crusade to rewrite history.

His quest will take him under the wall and into a city teeming with ravenous undead, air pirates, criminal overlords, and heavily armed refugees. And only Briar can bring him out alive.

Reviews

I really wanted to like this... by Brandon (Posted on 6/5/2014)
*sigh* I had high hopes for this. It has a great literary pedigree (Hugo award, etc) and is narrated by my favorite of the GA voice actors. Man, did it fall flat and for two related reasons: the dialogue and the delivery. This is the first time I have ever had issue with the quality of the voice acting, and I have listened to over a dozen different GA programs. The characterizations of Briar, Zeke and Angeline were, to put it nicely, terrible. They were instantly disliked as characters. At times I wanted to reach into the ether and shake them! Such whiny, petulant, arrogant dialogue! It didn't make me feel their plight, it made me sympathize with the people trying to kill them! Ok, maybe it wasn't THAT bad, but man, this one was a stinker. It gets two stars for the narration (Ms. Delaney could read the phone book and I'd buy it...in fact, her voice is my business voicemail greeting, thanks to a GA Christmas deal) and the characters of the air ship pilot and Swackhammer were redeeming. But such is my opinion. This may appeal to a different target, and I may be a lone dissenter. In other words, your mileage may vary.
