Full Synopsis
In the mid-1870s, a violent spray of comets hits Earth, decimating cities, erasing shorelines, and changing the world's climate forever. And just as Earth's temperature dropped, so was civilization frozen in time. Instead of advancing technologically, humanity had to piece itself back together . . .

In the twenty-first century, boats still run on steam, messages arrive by telegraph, and the British Empire, with its capital now in Delhi, controls much of the world. The other major world leader is the Czar of All the Russias. Everyone predicts an eventual, deadly showdown. But no one can predict the role that one man, Captain Athelstane King, reluctant spy and hero, will play . . .

“An irresistible read.” ---Booklist

“A remarkable alternate history.” ---Library Journal

“Aimed at readers who thrill to King, Empire, and the fluttering Union Jack . . . a nifty premise.” ---Publishers Weekly

“Stirling set up his world superbly. . . . It has color, vibrancy, and boldness.” ---Santa Fe New Mexican
