About this item
About this item
In an alternate Australia dominated by coal power and the British empire, Clara and Tim arrive in the rebel republic of Westralia, where people are nocturnal and live underground, burrowing with machines called steam moles.
This new steampunk adventure is a race around the world.
Tim Barnabas is a submariner from the "Cuttlefish," a coal fired submarine. Clara Calland is the daughter of a scientist who carries a secret formula that threatens British Imperial power. After a daring chase across the globe, they have brought the secret to Westralia. Here, much of Australia is simply too hot to be habitable by day. People are nocturnal, living underground and working outside at night. To cross the deserts they use burrowing machines know as "steam moles." With the "Cuttlefish" out of action, her crew takes jobs on these submarine-like craft.
Duke Malcolm, of the Imperial Security Service, transports Clara's rebel-father to a prison in Eastern Australia, hoping to bait her into attempting a rescue. Clara looks to Tim for help, only to find he has fled a racist incident into the desert. She takes a steam mole in search of him. The two head to Eastern Australia, where they discover an invading force with plans to take Westralia. Forced to survive in the desert, they encounter the intolerance meted out to the aboriginal people. Can they save Westralia from falling under British rule? And should they?"
