Engn Cover Reveal

Monday, 27 May 2013


And here it is, the cover for Engn, to be released by December House on July 15th:



Finn's childhood in the valley is idyllic, but across the plains lies a threat. Engn is an ever-growing steam-powered fortress, that needs a never ending supply of workers. Generation after generation have been taken away, escorted into its depths by the mysterious and terrifying Ironclads, never to return.

The Masters of Engn first take Finn's sister, then his best friend, Connor. He thinks he, at least, is safe - until the day the ironclads come to haul him away too.

Yet all is not lost, Finn has a plan. In the peace of the valley he and Connor made a pact. A promise to join the mythical Wreckers and end Engn's tyranny from within.

But now on his own, lost and thwarted in the vastness of Engn, Finn begins to have doubts. Is Connor really working to destroy Engn?

Or has he become part of the machine?

Engn is a YA/Fantasy novel. In case you're wondering, the title is pronounced like "engine". If you're interested in being kept up to date on the book, December House have set up a mailing list, available here. No spam guaranteed!
