"Cuttlefish is Dave Freer at his best-and he's always good. It combines fascinating alternate history, superb and comprehensible science, and a propulsive plot that will entertain people of all ages, not just young adults."
-Eric Flint, Bestselling author of the 1632 series
"Filled with coal-fired submarines, scientific secrets, and two young people who fight injustice, work to bring down an evil empire, and quite literally save the world, Cuttlefish is a book to dream upon. Freer's clean style and vivid descriptions, his complex characters and his clear vision make this a book all ages can enjoy."
-Sarah A. Hoyt, author of Darkship Thieves
