From the winner of the Philip K. Dick Award 2010AFRICA, 1863.SIR RICHARD FRANCIS BURTONAN EXPLORER, A LINGUIST, A SCHOLAR, AND THE KING'S AGENT OR IS HE A PUPPET BEING MANIPULATED BY FORCES HE CANNOT UNDERSTAND?A RACE TO FIND THE SOURCE OF THE NILE!ALGERNON CHARLES SWINBURNEA FAMOUS YOUNG FLAME-HAIRED POET, THRILL-SEEKER, AND FOLLOWER OF THE MARQUIS DE SADE. FOR HIM PAIN IS PLEASURE, AND BRANDY IS RUIN!BACK TO WHERE THE ADVENTURE BEGAN!It is 1863, but not the one it should be. Time has veered wildly off course, and moves are being made that will lead to a devastating world war. Prime Minister Lord Palmerston believes that by possessing the three Eyes of Naga he'll be able to manipulate events and avoid the war. He already has two of the stones, but he needs Sir Richard Francis Burton to recover the third. For the king's agent, it's a chance to return to the Mountains of the Moon to make a second attempt at locating the source of the Nile. But a rival expedition led by John Hanning Speke stands in his way, threatening a confrontation that could ignite the very war that Palmerston is trying to avoid!Caught in a tangled web of cause, effect, and inevitability, little does Burton realize that the stakes are far higher than even he suspects.A final confrontation comes in London, where, in the year 1840, Burton must face the man responsible for altering time—Spring Heeled Jack!Burton and Swinburne's third adventure completes the three-volume story arc begun in The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack and The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man.

5.0 Historia zatacza koło
Moje zamiłowanie do steampunk, większości z Was jest już pewnie doskonale znane. Dlatego nie zdziwi Was fakt, że gdy dotarła do mnie paczuszka z najnowszą, a zarazem ostatnią częścią trylogii Marka Hoddera – Burton i Swinburne; dosłownie skakałam z radości i od razu zabrałam się za czytanie. Patrząc...

Es el más débil de los tres libros, y aún así la trilogía es tremenda y fascinante.Son dos historias que corren paralelas, una en el futuro y otra en el presente (de la novela), reunidas en un punto casi llegando al final. No puedo contar más sin caer en los spoilers. La trilogía contiene steampunk,...

5.0 Wyprawa w Góry Księżycowe
Wspaniałe zakończenie genialnej trylogii. Książki Marka Hoddera zawierają wszystko to, co uwielbiam: steampunk, zakłócenie kontinuum czasoprzestrzennego, humor, świetny styl i język pisarza. Dodatkowo jeszcze przepiękna, według mnie, oprawa książek. Polecam wszystkie części.
