Newbury & Hobbes

Victorian England comes fully alive in true steampunk fashion, with dazzling inventions and airships flying over the city, while clockwork automatons race across the streets. But there’s a sinister side to all this new technological progress. And with the Queen on life-support, it’s up to her trusted aids, Sir Maurice Newbury and his unmatchable assistant, Miss Veronica Hobbes, to help protect the royal crown. In The Affinity Bridge, a zombie plague threatens to ravage the capital city of London—a London unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, in George Mann’s wildly entertaining science fictional series, Newbury and Hobbes.
