Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"* The book has good ideas, a strong story and zeppelins. Nothing with zeppelins exploding in flames can possibly be all bad. In addition, Jeapes presents a convincing picture of what the Holekhor technology would do to the battlefields of the Civil War - what it would do and more importantly what it would fail to do. - www.writeaway.co.uk * Jeapes does a good job with his characterisation, building up the backstory of his dodgy general'slife, and the battle scenes are well-written. - SFX * Bit of a page turner...there's plenty in there for all ages to get their teeth into...the books dark moments are robust enough to send shivers down your spine. - www.sfcrowsnest.co.uk * Lots of surprises and plot twists in this excellent, really gripping story. - Primary Times (Hampshire)"
