Inventor Leviticus Blue creates a machine that accidentally decimates Seattle's banking district and uncovers a vein of Blight Gas that turns everyone who breathes it into the living dead. Sixteen years later Briar, Blue's widow, lives in the poor neighborhood outside the wall that's been built around the uninhabitable city. Life is tough with a ruined reputation, but she and her teenage son Ezekiel are surviving--until Zeke impetuously decides that he must reclaim his father's name from the clutches of history.… (más)

Took a while for me to get into it, but I ended up quite liking it. Didn't grab me as much as my last book, but I will look for more books by the author. I did have trouble placing it in a timeframe - the text and conversations didn't immediately place me in the era, and so sometimes I had to concentrate to remember "when" this was. I did like the characters though, and the concept is great. The tension build toward the end of the book was gripping. ( )

I loved this book. Great fun and a wonderful mashup of steampunk, zombies, and westerns. I can't wait to read the next book. ( )

I'm actually torn about this book. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The writing was pretty good and the story moved along nicely. The setting, as unbelievable as it was, was fun and exciting. The characters were well drawn and likable and unlikable as appropriate. I read it as fast as I could, and wanted more when I was finished.

On the other hand, there were quite a few times where it was difficult to stay oriented about how buildings were laid out on streets or rooms were laid out in buildings. Maybe that's just hard to do in books. It didn't really detract from the story, since the characters were confused about their location anyway. The ending was a bit of a letdown.

Even so, I like the characters, world, and writing so much that I can hardly wait to get my hands on the next books in this series. ( )

I enjoyed this book, but found it a bit on the long side. It was my first exploration of the steam punk genre. ( )

I love the premise of this book, which takes place in the late 19th century in Seattle. According to this alternate version of history, the American Civil War has been going on for more than a decade, and a catastrophic event in Seattle has released a toxic gas from the earth turns its victims into the living dead. Seattle has been sealed off and the people who have been forced to flee the city make a difficult living in the Outskirts.

The story moved at a moderate pace - it never seemed to bog down completely, but the plot did struggle to hold up here and there. There were times when I didn't want to put the book down, but in the end I felt as the things had unraveled somewhere along the way and the ending wasn't as dramatic as it was intended to be. ( )

Overall, Priest has created a terrific story that will please endless science fiction fans in search of a thrill.

Priest’s latest, very simply rocks: It’s not only the steampunk adventure you’ve been waiting for, it’s the steampunk adventure you can give to friends of yours who wonder what the hell’s up with all those Victorian overcoats and goggles.

It's full of buckle and has swash to spare, and the characters are likable and the prose is fun. This is a hoot from start to finish, pure mad adventure.

In this age of invention the science of arms has made great progress. In fact, the most remarkable inventions have been made since the prolonged wars of Europe in the early part of the century, and the short Italian campaign of France in 1859 served to illustrate how great a power the engines of destruction can exert.

From its commencement its close, giving an account of its origin, The Secession of the Southern States, and the Formation of the Confederate Government, the concentration of the Military and Financial resources of the federal government, the development of its vast power, the raising, organizing, and equipping of the contending armies and navies; lucid, vivid, and accurate descriptions of battles and bombardments, sieges and surrender of forts, captured batteries, etc., etc.; the immense financial resources and comprehensive measures of the government, the enthusiasm and patriotic contributions of the people, together with sketches of the lives of all the eminent statesmen and military and naval commanders, with a full and complete index.

Unpaved, uneven trails pretended to be roads; they tied the nation's coasts together like laces holding a boot, binding it with crossed strings and crossed fingers.
