Waiting on Wednesday #8

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme (hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine) in which I share pre-published books I’m looking forward to reading.
Release date: November 6th, 2012 (Prometheus Books)
An alternate 1895... a world where Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace perfected the Difference engine. Where steam and tesla-powered computers are everywhere. Where automatons powered by human souls venture out into the sprawling London streets. Where the Ministry, a secretive government agency, seeks to control everything in the name of the Queen.

It is in this claustrophobic, paranoid city that seventeen-year-old Sebastian Tweed and his conman father struggle to eke out a living.

But all is not well...

A murderous, masked gang has moved into London, spreading terror through the criminal ranks as they take over the underworld. as the gang carves up more and more of the city, a single name comes to be uttered in fearful whispers.

Professor Moriarty.

When Tweed’s father is kidnapped by Moriarty, he is forced to team up with information broker Octavia Nightingale to track him down. But he soon realizes that his father’s disappearance is just a tiny piece of a political conspiracy that could destroy the British Empire and plunge the world into a horrific war.

…I know, right?! I can’t wait for it either! If I were an author, this is the book I’d want to have my name on. And the cover is so cool...very Doctor Who-ish. Be on the lookout for my interview with the author, Paul Crilley, which I will post very soon.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday? Leave me a link or drop a note in the comments.
