Welcome to Snow World, where alien intervention has ruined the land, rendered modern technology useless, and reduced humanity to warring clans that command steam-powered zeppelins and battlebots in search of the few remaining resources. This scarred world ? once known as Southern California ? is a frozen wasteland, smothered by cloud cover and infested with ravenous mutant beasties. Romulus Buckle, captain of the warship the Pneumatic Zeppelin, is a dashing young man obsessed with his sister?s death ? which he blames on the Imperial clan. And when several clan leaders, including an Imperial general, are kidnapped during a peace conference, Buckle and his crew launch a rescue mission into the heart of an impenetrable prison fortress known as the City of the Founders. To survive, Buckle forges an uneasy alliance with the Imperials. But secret agendas and hidden loyalties could spark a new war that will plunge the remnants of humanity into another Stone Age.
