Waiting on Wednesday – The Rising by Ian Tregillis

August 5, 2015

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to let us share our excitement for books coming out soon.

What can I say, I really enjoyed The Mechanical (my review), and can’t wait to read the next installment. I love the whole dilemma of what constitutes a thinking being, loved the intrigue and spies, and really am looking forward to continuing the story.

Title: The Rising

Author: Ian Tregillis

Expected publication: December 1, 2015

The second book in the Alchemy Wars trilogy by Ian Tregillis, an epic tale of liberation and war.
Jax, a rogue Clakker, has wreaked havoc upon the Clockmakers’ Guild by destroying the Grand Forge. Reborn in the flames, he must begin his life as a free Clakker, but liberation proves its own burden.

Berenice, formerly the legendary spymaster of New France, mastermind behind her nation’s attempts to undermine the Dutch Hegemony — has been banished from her homeland and captured by the Clockmakers Guild’s draconian secret police force.
Meanwhile, Captain Hugo Longchamp is faced with rallying the beleaguered and untested defenders of Marseilles-in-the-West for the inevitable onslaught from the Brasswork Throne and its army of mechanical soldiers.
