Equality remains elusive in this stunning steampunk sequel to Worldshaker .

In the aftermath of the events of Worldshaker , the Filthies control the massive juggernaut, now called Liberator. Many members of the former upper class, called Swanks, have remained behind to help teach them how to operate the juggernaut and to build a new society together. But all is not idyllic aboard Liberator.

A saboteur seems determined to drive up anti-Swank sentiment among the more volatile Filthy factions. And the Swanks are finding that their best efforts to work with the Filthies are being tossed aside. Even Col, who thought his relationship with Riff was rock solid, is starting to see their friendship crumbling before him. As tensions run high and coal supplies run low, Liberator is on the verge of a crisis. Can Col and Riff unify their divided people before disaster strikes?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Col, an upper-class Swank, and Riff, a working-class Filthy, have overthrown a corrupt political system to ensure safety and equality for all aboard the juggernaut Liberator. But a saboteur threatens Col and Riff's vision for the future, their fledgling love for each other, and a great many people's lives as well. This sequel to Worldshaker (2010) occurs on a ship similar to the mobile cities in Philip Reeve's Mortal Engines books, and it explores the effects of power on the previously powerless. Economical prose and plenty of action accompany some tender romantic moments, giving this title wide audience appeal.--Welch, Cindy Copyright 2010 Booklist"
