Set in a darkly original alternative Renaissance Italy, The Wave Trilogy is a gripping adventure, a tragic love story and a very modern tale of redemption. This omnibus edition includes Irenicon, The Warring States and Spira Mirabilis.Both weapon and mystery, The Wave created the artificial river Irenicon overnight, ripping the city of Rasenna in two - but not even the Concordian engineers who wielded it know how the river became conscious, and hostile.Now Captain Giovanni has been ordered to bridge the Irenicon, not to reunite the sundered city, but to aid Concord's mighty armies. The engineers have their sights set firmly on world domination and Rasenna is in their way.Sofia Scaglieri will soon be seventeen, when she will become Contessa of Rasenna, but her inheritance is tainted: she can see no way of stopping the ancient culture of vendetta which divides her city. Times are changing. And only the young Contessa and the enemy engineer Giovanni understand they have to change too, if they are to survive the coming devastation - for Concord is about to unleash the Wave again . . .'Harte is a brilliant new voice in historical fantasy, and this is quite simply the best piece of fantasy that I have read so far this year' Inter Zone

She can see no way of stopping Rasenna's culture of vendetta . . . until a Concordian engineer arrives to build a bridge over the Irenicon. He shows her that the feuding factions of Rasenna can continue to fight each other, or they can unite against Concord. And they will need to stand together - for Concord is about to unleash the Wave again . . .Set in a darkly original alternative Renaissance Italy, Irenicon is a gripping adventure, a tragic love story and a very modern tale of redemption.
