      To make things even worse, Abdu El Yezdi has gone silent: no advice and no communications with the living. The King appoints Sir Richard Francis Burton, who has just recovered (sort of) from a harrowing expedition that discovered the source of the Nile river. Mark Hodder is an English steampunk author, since living in Spain. His six-part series of 'Burton & Swinburne' steampunk novels opened with The Strange Affair of Spring-Heeled Jack, which went on to win the Philip K. Dick Award. The following two novels, The Curious Case of the Clockwork-Man and Expedition to the Mountains of the Moon, were released in and respectively to.

    The Secret of Abdu El Yezdi is the latest installment in the Burton and Swinburne Adventures. Unfortunately, this latest adventure isn’t quite as interesting or exciting as its predecessors. Rather than being a confident, smart and charming explorer, Burton comes off as tiresome and annoying throughout this book. The Beast is coming. History will be remade. Since the assassination of Queen Victoria in , a cabal of prominent men -- including King George V, HRH Prince Albert, Benjamin Disraeli, and Isambard Kingdom Brunel -- has received guidance from the Afterlife. The spirit of a dead mystic, Abdu El Yezdi, has helped them to steer the empire into a period of unprecedented peace and creativity.
