Staff Picks (Mar14): Brass Sun #1
Feb 19, 2014
Nestled between a time of great enlightenment and terrible savagery lies the "clockpunk" world of Brass Sun.
The people worship The Orrery, a mechanical device believed to be connected to their world and the rest of the solar system. But the solar system is slowly dying, and the people turn to the Paragons for answers. Those who would favor science over blind faith are made unfortunate examples of the Paragons' immense power and only the strong of will, like Wren's grandfather, will stand up and resist. A scientist and former Paragon, Wren's grandfather is literally burned at the stake for his blasphemy against the Paragons, driving Wren on a journey to discover the truth about The Orrery and hopefully save the world.
Ian Edginton brings readers an epic fantasy/sci-fi world, a hybrid between the reality we know and the fantasy of the unknown. Brass Sun exists in a world lost in time and driven by the mysteries of religion versus science, a battle that is all too familiar to humanity.
