On the planet Ptallaya, under two bright yellow suns, they encounter the Yatsill, a race of enthusiastic mimics who shape their society after impressions picked up from Clarissa’s mind. Creating a faux London, the alien creatures enroll Clarissa in their Council of Magicians and Aiden in the City Guard. But why does the peaceful city require guards? After a day that, in earthly terms, has lasted for months, the answer comes, for on this planet without night, a red sun also rises, and brings with it a destructive evil. The Blood Gods! Hideous creatures, they cause Aiden to confront his own internal darkness while trying to protect his friend and his new home.
With a sharp eye for period detail and a rich imagination, Mark Hodder establishes a weirdly twisted version of Victorian London on a convincingly realized alien world, and employs them to tackle a profound psychological and moral question. A Red Sun Also Rises breaks new ground by combining the sword-and-planet genre with Victorian steampunk while adding an edgy psychological twist.

Timothy Leary called he wants his LSD back
Ok I loved Burton and Swinburne. When I heard the forward to this book I was excited because I thought it was going to be a Steampunk twist on a what happens to all the people who get lost in the bermuda triangle. The author got the story idea that he read from a journal that was found in a recovered shipwreck. It was about two missionaries. I am still intrigued. Then it just gets wierd and the set up of the other planet was too much. There was too much explaining of the society. The story was relatively good but too much time was invested in details.I would have liked a little more narrative and less expository. The love story between the two main characters was good because they were both broken in their own way and made whole by each other, but it took a long way to get there, and it was not ultimately satisfying. The narration was good, but I kept thinking, how much better this would have been narrated by Gerard Doyle, who narrated Burton and Swinburne trilogy; which, did I mention I loved.
