This adaptation of War of the Worlds brings the reader a different sci-fi perspective as we see the dreadful unfolding of dystopian Britain during the height of the Victorian Empire. A colossal navy becomes useless against the invaders who fall from the sky.
Across southern England come the Martian tripods with one aim. World conquest and human extinction.
One coastal defence vessel will not yield.
H.M.S. Thunder Child will make her glorious gesture.
Join her valiant crew during the days leading up to the dramatic confrontation.
