Steam

By Chris Allton

Young adult, Sci-Fi | Paperback, eBook


Living in a time of industrial revolution, the poor of society struggle daily with terrible living conditions, whereas the rich continue to prosper, often at the expense of the less fortunate. Archie Roker is a well-off teenager living with his father, a prominent, world-renowned surgeon, who is personal physician to the Queen. Having everything he desires, Archie still feels trapped in his life. A series of unusual events, with masked, goggle-wearing strangers and a mechanical raven, take Archie on a journey beyond his wildest dreams. Visit the world of Alium, the steampunk world; a place where freedom and technology work hand-in-hand, and encounter the evil force that is Imperium — a group of the most influential figures in society. With which side will Archie's loyalties lie: Alium or Imperium?



Chris started writing 'Steam' in March 2017 and completed it in the following November. That is the up to date history of him but how he came up with this story and what lead him to write this is another matter. He worked hard at school but, believe it or not for an author, found English hard. Maths was his thing. Blame his dad, he was an accountant. Following his GCSE's he studied English and Maths at college - still preferring Maths. At this point, he was a frustrated musician in a band called 'Off The Wall', having the time of his life playing music with his friends. Something that, twenty years later, he is still doing. He decided to train to be a teacher and studied a Bachelor of Education in Liverpool. Graduating four years later, he has worked in various primary schools for nearly twenty years. This experience has been vital to him now as an author. Not only through the things he has taught, but the great texts he has read to children. This, along with the influence of music (and fashion associated with it), has led him to where he is today - unleashing 'Steam' upon the world.
