Things are finally looking good for Captain Frey and his crew. The Ketty Jay has been fixed up good as new. They've got their first taste of fortune and fame. And, just for once, nobody is trying to kill them. Even Trinica Dracken, Frey's ex-fiancee and long-time nemesis, has given up her quest for revenge. In fact, she's offered them a job - one that will take them deep into the desert heart of Samarla, the land of their ancient enemies. To a place where the secrets of the past lie in wait for the unwary. Secrets that might very well cost Frey everything. Join the crew of the Ketty Jay on their greatest adventure yet: a story of mayhem and mischief, roof-top chases and death-defying races, murderous daemons, psychopathic golems and a particularly cranky cat. The first time was to clear his name. The second time was for money. This time, Frey's in a race against the clock for the ultimate prize: to save his own life.

Chris Wooding has already signed his first Hollywood film deal and won several awards for his writing. He is the author of, amongst others, the Broken Sky series, which has sold over 200,000 copies in the US alone, and The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray, which won the Silver Smarties award. He has travelled extensively, plays bass and guitar and has recorded several albums with various bands and toured in Europe. His books have been published all over the world and translated into 19 languages, and his Braided Path trilogy for Gollancz was a critical and international success. He is currently working on two movies with a top Hollywood director.Review:
"This is a wonderful story built on a solid foundation. Wooding has something wonderful going on here and I hope he keeps writing entertaining stories like this. The Iron Jackal was a real treat to read and review.." - Pop Cults
"I enjoyed it thoroughly. Wooding’s characters are diverse, fully conceived, and vibrant, and he uses each scene not only to build the tension, but to build his cast’s relevance to the story and to each other." - Attack of the Books
"Wooding fabricated an incredible fantasy that will keep you turning pages and anticipating what’s next!" - Atomic Moo
"Fans of the steampunk genre will greatly enjoy The Iron Jackal." - Geek Girl Project
“THE IRON JACKAL, an enjoyable edge-of-the-seat romp full of derring-do and swashbuckle. If you’re looking for a fast, fun science fiction novel that won’t break your brain, grab a copy of THE IRON JACKAL.” – Count Gore
"The story itself is non-stop fun. From the first chapter that begins in the middle of the action to the very final chapter, expect lots of explosions, gunfights, escaping from almost-dire situations and heroics that seem almost insane. This one is a page-turner and you’ll find yourself always wondering what can happen next. The answer is, apparently, anything." - Fangirl Confessions
