Publisher Comments:

Professor Amelia Harsh is obsessed with finding the lost civilization of Camlantis, a legendary city from pre-history that is said to have conquered hunger, war, and disease with the creation of the perfect pacifist society. Without official funding, Amelia is forced to accept an offer of patronage from Abraham Quest, the man she blames for her fathers bankruptcy and suicide. She hates him, but he has something that Amelia desperately wants--evidence that proves that Camlantis existed and that the Camlantean ruins are buried under one of the sea-like lakes that dot the murderous jungles of Liongeli.

Amelia will blackmail her old friend Commodore Black into ferrying her along a huge river on his ancient U-boat. With an untrusty crew of freed convicts, Quests force of fearsome female mercenaries on board, and a lunatic steamman acting as their guide, Amelias luck seems to be going from bad to worse. Her quest for the perfect society has a good chance of bringing her own world to the brink of destruction…

The Kingdom Beyond The Waves is Stephen Hunts third novel, set in the same universe as The Court of the Air. Amelia Harsh is a female Indiana Jones if there ever was one, and this novel is a rollicking steampunk adventure that will hook readers for one dynamite ride.


Set in the same universe as "The Court of the Air," Hunt's third novel is a thrilling yard of perilous quests, dastardly deeds, and deadly intrigue.

Caroline Berg, May 12, 2012 (view all comments by Caroline Berg)
An excellent second book in a series that is fast becoming one of my favorites. This book takes two minor characters from the first book set in this world (The Court of the Air) and makes them the stars of their own adventure. You do not need to have read the first book in the series to understand anything in this book.

This book is a completely different style from the first book in the series. This is a roaring steampunk adventure. A group sets out to find the mythical city Camlantis (a mixture of Camelot and Atlantis) in a submarine through dangerous jungles and hostile landscapes. And like the first book, there are lots of plots and subplots, some which seem to have no relation to the main plot - but it all comes together by the end. I highly recommend it!
