The battle continues as the Filthies take over the juggernaut Worldshaker and rename it Liberator. A world of deception and betrayal ensues as the revolution turns radical. With Col now in the minority with his Swank friends, what will happen to his relationship with Riff, as they both face the reality of a world changing its shape forever?
Praise for Worldshaker:
'Harland has constructed a world with overtones of the Victorian era, when capitalism was at its most aggressive, and taken us hopefully to a brighter dawn.' Viewpoint
'Harland has created a wonderfully brooding world that is part Dickens, part steam-punk and will appeal to those twelve and up who like their fantasy a little on the dark side.' Readings Monthly
This brilliant sequel to Worldshaker follows the changed fortunes of Col and Riff as the juggernaut rolls on. Now the Filthies are in charge, and it's the Upper Decks people who are victimised and reduced to a ghetto-like existence.
