The frozen wasteland of Snow World ? known as Southern California before
an alien invasion decimated civilization?is home to warring steampunk
clans. Crankshafts, Imperials, Tinskins, Brineboilers, and many more all
battle one another for precious supplies, against ravenous mutant
beasts for basic survival, and with the mysterious Founders for their
very freedom. Through this ruined world soars the Pneumatic Zeppelin,
captained by the daring Romulus Buckle. In the wake of a nearly suicidal
assault on the Founders? prison city to rescue key military leaders,
both the steam-powered airship and its crew are bruised and battered.
Yet there's little time for rest or repairs: Founders raids threaten to
shatter the fragile alliance Buckle has risked everything to forge among
the clans. Even as he musters what seems a futile defense in the face
of inevitable war, Buckle learns that the most mysterious clan of all is
holding his long-lost sister in a secret base ? and that she holds the
ultimate key to victory over the Founders. But rescuing her means
abandoning his allies and praying they survive long enough for there to
be an alliance to return to.

King Boric the Implacable knows death comes to all great warriors. He just didn't expect it to be so damn fickle. Felled by an assassin's blade, he should be spending eternity carousing in the Hall of Avandoor. Instead, his spirit is bound to his decaying body by the enchanted sword of Brakslaagt. And unless he can hunt down the mysterious Lord Brand, who gave him the weapon so long ago, he is cursed to wander the earth forever as an undead wraith. So begins Boric's extraordinary journey across the Six Kingdoms of Dis as a walking corpse who wants nothing more than to be disenchanted and left in peace. His is not an easy quest: along the way he is burned, riddled with arrows, and nearly blown to bits. But when he finally comes face-to-face with Lord Brand, Boric will discover that nothing - in life, in death, or in between - is exactly what it seems.

Now he does it for the thrill. He knows that the FBI has been hot on his trail--particularly Kate O'Hare, who has been watching his every move.

Problem is, teaming up to stop a corrupt investment banker who's hiding on a private island in Indonesia is going to test O'Hare's patience and Fox's skill.
