Novel description for Perfect World Somewhere

I’ve finally come up with a blurb for the novel. My dear friends know how much I hate writing these things. Anyhow, here it is:

The sleepy farming town of Plumgrove is sheltered from the War. A haven for some, as the rest of the world struggles against the Pruessian Empire. A young prodigy named Lily Fairpoole works as her father’s apprentice, building and repairing robots in their humble maintenance shop. Her technical aptitude and exceptional singing voice herald a bright future.

In the aftermath of the Kaezer’s brutal invasion, Lily begins a treacherous journey. From the oppressive ration camps of the enemy, to the glittering and powerful off-world colonies, she learns the meaning of sacrifice, and survival.

A blend of early twentieth century eras and possible futures, as well as a coming-of-age story, this is the prequel to “Ruby Descent”, a decopunk novel due in 2015.

    1. Thank you! Yes I have read “The City Darkens”, I absolutely loved it. It’s the closest that I’ve found to the type of retro-future world that I’m doing. With the addition of a little cyberpunk flair, and interplanetary travel 🙂
