Product description

Things are finally looking good for Captain Frey and his crew. The Ketty Jay has been fixed up good as new. They've got their first taste of fortune and fame. And, just for once, nobody is trying to kill them. Even Trinica Dracken, Frey's ex-fiancee and long-time nemesis, has given up her quest for revenge. In fact, she's offered them a job - one that will take them deep into the desert heart of Samarla, the land of their ancient enemies. To a place where the secrets of the past lie in wait for the unwary. Secrets that might very well cost Frey everything. Join the crew of the Ketty Jay on their greatest adventure yet: a story of mayhem and mischief, roof-top chases and death-defying races, murderous daemons, psychopathic golems and a particularly cranky cat. The first time was to clear his name. The second time was for money. This time, Frey's in a race against the clock for the ultimate prize: to save his own life.

Praise for Chris Wooding's Ketty Jay novels: 'Retribution Falls is a wonderful novel' Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling author Charlaine Harris 'Retribution Falls is the kind of old fashioned adventure I didn't think we were allowed to write any more, of freebooting privateers making their haphazard underhand way in a wondrous retro-future world.' Peter F. Hamilton 'A light-hearted dose of steampunkery that mizes cutlasses and grog with giant airships . . . The Black Lung Captain is imaginative, action-stuffed and an enormous amount of fun' SFX www.chriswooding.com 978 0 575 09808 4 £7.99
