You must keep the secret.”Freddy Castus is an inventor of genius, born just at the right time and in just the right place. It’s 476, there are revolutions everywhere, political, industrial, scientific, and Britain is at the forefront of all of them.

Freddy’s problem is that he doesn’t have the money for his experiments, big, ambitious experiments in flight and steam engines and everything else.Desperate to find a way to keep working on them, when Freddy discovers a device that detects iron in some junk that’s come into the workshop he knows that he has three choices. He could ignore the device and continue to work in the family business, scraping up what money he can and using what equipment there is, while of course also trying to avoid being dragged into the war like every other eighteen year old.

Or he could leave the device behind, run away to London and work for the ganglord Lucan, who has promised to support his experiments in exchange for his expertise in valuing stolen goods. Or he could take the device, a chain worn around his neck, and convert it from something that detects iron into something that detects gold and buy everything he needs for himself.It’s no choice at all.Freddy hates devices, as far as he’s concerned they’re witchcraft, he knows they’re highly illegal and lethally dangerous, particularly when they’re meddled with, he knows his device might have actually come from Lucan, and that Lucan might be connected with Spartacus, the revolutionary dictator of Gaul, the man and the country Britain has been at war with for longer than he’s been alive, but if he’s going to do what he wants with his life he has to take the chance.None of it turns out the way Freddy wants.After nearly killing himself converting the device, he discovers that instead of gold, or even iron, the device now detects other devices, not just where they are but also what they’re doing, and all from miles away.

That makes him a very dangerous man, particularly to the Spartacists. Unfortunately, because of his attempt to find out what he had made, news of it has reached a man almost as dangerous as the Spartacists themselves- Capito, the head of Britain’s spy service. A vicious fight to control Freddy plays out, a fight that throws him at golems and revenants, trolls and Immortals, a fight that all the time is dragging him towards one man, and ten thousand. Margarelon, Britain’s brilliant general with his pitch-black past, has rescued Britain’s only army from Spartacus’ final victory over Rome and led them to the sea.

Everything must be used to bring Margarelon and his men home, including Freddy.Yet, for all that, right from the start Freddy realises there is a reason why he has ended up with his device. There’s something else lurking somewhere in Spartacus’ regime, something so dangerous everyone refuses to even recognise its existence. That danger has reached out, all the way to Britain, wrapped itself around his neck.

Freddy knows that due to his own recklessness and the chaos of war, that danger has created the very thing that will expose it. And that thing is a chain around his neck he cannot get rid of, but the secret of which the Spartacists’ can never know.Worlds to Conquer is the first book in the Worlds to Conquer trilogy.
