All aboard as Titan Books announce the publication next month of the brand-new, highly anticipated Newbury & Hobbes adventure from fan favourite author, George Mann, celebrating the series 10th Anniversary...
Picking up where The Executioner’s Heart left off, rejoin Newbury and Hobbes in The Revenant Express, the eagerly awaited fifth book in the steampunk series.
Sir Maurice Newbury is bereft as his trusty assistant Veronica Hobbes lies dying with a wounded heart. Newbury and Veronica’s sister Amelia must take a sleeper train across Europe to St. Petersburg to claim a clockwork heart that Newbury has commissioned from Fabergé to save Veronica from a life trapped in limbo.
No sooner do they take off then sinister goings-on start to plague the train, and it is discovered that a mysterious cultist is also on board, determined to recover a precious artefact. Can Newbury and Amelia defeat him before he carries out his terrible revenge?
But as Newbury and Amelia hurtle towards the only thing that can save Veronica, they uncover a terrible secret that could threaten the lives of everyone on board. A secret linked to Veronica’s past...
Plus the adventure doesn’t stop there as the series has been expanded by Titan Comics into a spin-off comic series as part of the 10th Anniversary celebrations, featuring the return of the classic villain Dr. Aubrey Knox.
