“A richly realized world, an intensely likable character, and a mystery to die for." — Cory Doctorow, New York Times-bestselling author
Thoughtfully imaginative and action-packed, the Steeplejack trilogy by A.J. Hartley is a thrilling young adult series about Anglet Sutonga, a teenager who solves mysteries in the sprawling city of Bar-Selehm, which is part of a 19th-century South African-inspired fantasy world.
Steeplejack: Seventeen-year-old Anglet Sutonga lives and works as a steeplejack in Bar-Selehm, a sprawling city known for its great towers, spires, and smokestacks – and even greater social disparities across race and class. Ang’s world is turned upside-down when her new apprentice Berrit is murdered the same night that the city’s landmark jewel is stolen. As troubles mount in Bar-Selehm, Ang must discover the truth behind both murder and theft soon – or else watch the city descend into chaos.
Firebrand: Anglet Sutonga is moving up in the world, helping politician Josiah Willinghouse track down a thief who stole plans for a covert government weapon. Finding him won’t be easy, not when the thief has connections to Elitus, the city’s most powerful and super-exclusive social club. When someone gets murdered there, things definitely do not get any easier. But more is at stake as the city’s recent wave of refugees start to vanish. When Ang connects these two cases, they spark a conflagration of conspiracy which threatens to engulf the city whole. Unless she can stop it.
Guardian: This is what Ang knows: A dear friend is accused of murdering the Prime Minister of Bar-Selehm. A mysterious but fatal illness is infecting the poor. A fanatical politician seizes power, unleashing a wave of violent repression over the city. This is what Ang must do: Protect her family. Solve a murder. RESIST, no matter what, before it’s too late.
