In a fantastic world not too far ahead of us, Victorian sensibilities have brought back the monarchy, with a caste system that is lethally enforced. Dizzy is a con man, a commoner who makes his living impersonating the nobility. But one wrong turn leaves him trapped in the most dangerous place of all, the palace of the king. Invito Rex is the futuristic steampunk sequel to "The Hidden Institute".
This version comes with a high-res rendering of Sceptre, created entirely out of text from Chapter 1 of "Invito Rex".
Praise for "The Hidden Institute":
"Brand paints for us a fascinating portrait of a society where the class systems of nineteenth century Europe have reemerged with a vengeance and technology has progressed on a micro, rather than a macro, scale." - Juliet Carnell
"The Author's second outing is if anything even better than his first novel and I'm looking forward to finding out what he does next." - D J Havard
"Brand Gamblin has created a world that's part Anthony Burgess, part Michael Moorecock, and all original. In this gritty imagining of a steamy distopia, Brand weaves intrigue and romance, danger and wry wit into a commentary on contemporary society." - Nathan Lowell
