A beautiful island.
A rebellious princess.
A terrible secret…
When a princess discovers a sinister plot against her she becomes a fugitive in her own kingdom and must choose between her honor and her Throne.
Captain Harry and her crew arrive on the Island of Birds only to find there’s a dark underbelly beneath the superficial beauty and perfection of the fabled isle. In a kingdom defined by intrigue and deception, they stumble upon the island’s cruel secret and are thrown into a struggle not only to save themselves, but the island itself, from destruction.
The Island of Birds is the second in a trilogy of steampunk adventure novels for everyone from 9 years up. If you like a fantastical, page-turning adventure story with a gutsy heroine, , you’ll love Austin Hackney’s tales of courage, friendship and hope pitted against terrifying odds.
