WORLDSHAKER by Richard Harland
(from the author's site)
Col is the grandson and nominated heir of the Supreme Commander. he'll become the most powerful person on the juggernaut when he's completed his schooling and training. but one night, a girl Filthy from the engine room down Below tried to hide in his bedroom. The Filthies are dirty and ragged, never spoken about in polite society - but this one is on the loose and running free. 'Don't let 'em take me,' she pleads.
Every rational though in Col's head tells him to call the officers and hand her over. Yet there's something about her...
Another steampunk book, I know. But I am so into this genre right now! Keep them coming! Totally looking forward to this one.
