Book 2 of the Gearteeth series.
In 1890, a disease that turned sane men into ravenous werewolves swept through the United States like wildfire. On the brink of humanity’s extinction, Nikola Tesla and a mysterious order of scientists known as the Tellurians revealed a bold plan. The uninfected would abandon the Earth’s surface by rising up in floating salvation cities. The iron and steel metropolises carried tens of thousands of refugees above the savage apocalypse. The remnants of mankind huddled fearfully in the clouds, waiting for the werewolves to devour each other.
Twenty years later, only one salvation city remains aloft. And the beasts still rule the world below. Elijah Kelly, an infected Thunder Train crewman exiled to the ground, ranges ahead of his beloved home, determined to keep it safe no matter the cost. But a telluric deadzone has caught Wardenclyffe in its riptide, forcing it toward airspace where its miraculous machinery will no longer function. Desperate to neutralize the deadzone before the flying city crashes, Eli discovers a brutal truth. Humanity still exists on the ground, and pays a terrible vampiric price for their survival.
Eli is faced with an impossible choice between sacrificing thousands of innocent lives or betraying the rebels fighting for their freedom against an oppressive regime. He will be forced to rely on an unlikely ally lurking deep within his own blood to defy the inevitable.
