The Wave Trilogy

The Wave Trilogy

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 . . .

If there were stars for world-building Irenicon would be a five plus, no question

Seriously impressed both by the quality of the ideas and the ingenuity with which they are explored in the text . . . Irenicon is completely fascinating

The book is a fountain of gorgeous detail, festooned with enriching codices and enlightening, subtly subsumed exposition
