On board the legendary moletrain Medes, Sham watches in awe as he witnesses his first giant Moldywarpe hunt.

The savage battle to the death between hunter and mole is just the sort of adventure Sham wanted when he signed up for a life on the open rails of the Railsea. Then the crew comes across a wrecked train, at first it's a distraction from the excitement. But the impossible and dangerous salvage that Sham finds among the wreckage leads to considerably more than he bargained for. Now he has a secret to keep and he's being hunted on all sides: pirates, trainsfolk, monsters and salvage scrabblers.

It might not be just Sham's life that's about to change. It could be the whole of the Railsea.
