The Sunken: a dark steampunk fantasy (Engine Ward Book 1)

“… one of the most original books I’ve ever read.” – I Heart Reading

“One of my most enjoyable reads of this year, cracking along at high speed and using intriguing ideas to create a world that’s like a cracked mirror version of our own history.” – BookieMonster

In the heart of London lies the Engine Ward, a district forged in coal and steam, where the great Engineering Sects vie for ultimate control of the country. For many, the Ward is a forbidding, desolate place, but for Nicholas Thorne, the Ward is a refuge.

Deep within the bowels of the Ward, Nicholas can finally escape his strange affliction – the thoughts of animals that crowd his head. The shadows of his past hang over him, forcing him to remain hidden alongside the Stokers – a forgotten people who toil day and night to keep the boilers of the Ward constantly firing, so that the engine of progress may continue to hum.

But rebellion is stirring within the ranks of The Stokers, led by Nicholas’ childhood friend, the brilliant engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Forbidden to do the work that brings him his only joy, Brunel innovates in secret, his mind growing ever more twisted by the desire for knowledge.

Battles rage in the shadows of bizarre buildings at the heart of this nightmarish alternative London. As men transform into flesh-eating monsters, Nicholas and Brunel seek a way to restore peace – will London’s salvation come from a mechanical army, or on the backs of prehistoric beasts?

The Sunken is the first book in the Engine Ward fantasy series by S C Green. For fans of China Mieville and Neal Stephenson who want to explore the clash of religion, technology, and bestiary in a city on the cusp of industrial revolution.

    A confused mash up of different genres that does not work. Started well, but quickly descended into a tale with no coherent thread underlying the narrative. SPOILER ALERT. Historic victorian characters in a steam punk environment, where the King of England turns into some sort of flesh eating monster that is also addicted to eating lead, some people with the ability to mentally hear and even control animals (including a sort of dragon), and engineers that can single handedly create steam powered robots from scratch in 3 days. This story spends so much time trying to tick boxes for the reader that it loses any sense of direction. I started off wanting to like this book and read right to the end hoping it would all come together somehow, but was sadly disappointed. I will not be following the story in the subsequent novel.

    well done SCGreen. Your novel was a joy and what an excellent way of incorporating fantasy with steampunk, two of my favourite genres.
    The one star review you have on here, with the nasty comment about a child having wrote Sunken, is both as much of a shame as it is a paradox – as only a child would write such a review to a writers work without thinking of said writers feelings. Your story is very dark and gritty. Keep it up, I want to read more and look forward to becoming a serious fan. RTB.
