They’re all trying to escape their convict status, but will it be possible in the intense world of Australia?


It took me a little longer than I would have liked to really click as to what this story was even about. Although, a lot of that is probably because of the fact that I was trying to watch someone play Far Cry whilst also reading a steampunk story… not a combination that really works surprisingly.

There is something about having a steampunk theme set against Australia that worked incredibly well. Normally when I think of steampunk stories, I mostly imagine Victorian London, or similar locations and eras. Using the convicts in Australia as the backdrop instead surprised me. And completely drew me in. It’s a slightly different take on the history of the land that I live on…
