Boneshaker by Cherie Priest- November book

After looking over the Steam Punk book suggestions that were sent, I thought Boonshaker by Cherie Priest seemed like the best choice.

 

In the early days of the Civil War, rumors of gold in the frozen Klondike brought hordes of newcomers to the Pacific Northwest. Anxious to compete, Russian prospectors commissioned inventor Leviticus Blue to create a great machine that could mine through Alaska’s ice. Thus was Dr. Blue’s Incredible Bone-Shaking Drill Engine born.

 But on its first test run the Boneshaker went terribly awry, destroying several blocks of downtown Seattle and unearthing a subterranean vein of blight gas that turned anyone who breathed it into the living dead.

 Now it is sixteen years later, and a wall has been built to enclose the devastated and toxic city. Just beyond it lives Blue’s widow, Briar Wilkes. Life is hard with a ruined reputation and a teenaged boy to support, but she and Ezekiel are managing. Until Ezekiel undertakes a secret crusade to rewrite history.

 His quest will take him under the wall and into a city teeming with ravenous undead, air pirates, criminal overlords, and heavily armed refugees. And only Briar can bring him out alive.

This has been popular book so you might want to get it reserved at the library pretty quickly. We will be meeting at the Shoreline Haggen (Top Foods) in the Market Cafe dining area. Please note that we are Now meeting on the second Wednesday of the month. Everyone is welcome to attend the discussion meetup whether you have read the book or not. Your love or hate of the book can really add to the discussion.

      We are in the dining section. Usually the only group there and I will have the books on the table too. I'm clashing today with a red shirt and raspberry jacket.
