As Col begins to secretly spend more time with Riff, he begins to question everything he was raised to believe was true, and realizes that if Riff is right, then everything he was raised to believe is a lie. And Col himself may be the only person in a position to do something about it--even if it means risking his future.
"Harland has done a spectacular job of creating an extraordinary, highly original world, multileveled both literally and figuratively...His characters are practically incandescent--vivid, vital, and complex, combining elements of good and evil, and sometimes just deliciously bizarre. His style should appeal to readers of all ages, and he combines adventure, suspense, romance, lunatic comedy, and terror in one glorious package...Worldshaker's exciting, fast-paced plot roars along as unstoppably as...well, as a juggernaut."--Paula Volsky, author of The Grand Ellipse
“I loved Worldshaker! A claustrophobic setting of rivets, iron and steam, rustling silks and stiff collars and even stiffer manners; dark, twisting, bustling, brilliant. I was very, very glum when it came to an end.” --D.M. Cornish, author of Monster Blood Tattoo
