Description

HAWTHORNE: Chronicles of the Brass Hand is the story of young Edgar J. Hawthorne who sets out on a journey to the Royal Observatory at the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa in 1835 after reading of an incredible discovery in the Edinburgh Journal of Science, submitted by close family friend John Herschel.

Traveling with the Royal Air Brigade on the Stratos, England's newest and most advanced airship, pride of the British fleet, Edgar and the crew are caught unaware and attacked in the early hours of dawn by a flotilla of marauding airships. Outnumbered the Stratos is forced down into the deep jungles of Africa.

With the Stratos crippled and in need of repair Edgar, along with the first officer and a portion of the crew, set out to locate provisions. What Edgar discovers in the jungle, however, convinces him there are other forces involved in the downing of the Stratos. In the attempt to discover the truth behind the attack, Edgar unearths an unbelievable and far-reaching secret.

Finding himself caught up in a conflict that has raged for centuries, Edgar is thrust into a world of which only a handful are aware. With the aid of a mysterious girl and an unlikely ally, Edgar must do the impossible: prevent humanity's extinction.
