Hopebreaker: A Steampunk Dystopian Fantasy (The Great Iron War, Book 1) by Dean F. Wilson

Jacob was a smuggler of birth control devices in a society that depended on births to maintain their revolution.   The invaders seek the world's iron and to take the iron they must conquer the world. 

The relationship of Jacob with a female resistance leader is complex. It is difficult to decide if they are friend or foe.  Jacob is ancillary to a prison breakout and reluctantly discovers he is now a revolutionary due to the company he keeps.  Jacob sees himself as a self serving, small time criminal with no loyalty except to profit.  His relationship to Taberah eventually leads him to re-evaluate his self image.

Hope is a drug that the invaders need to survive.  Jacob finds himself caught up in a scheme to shatter hope.

The book had reasonable action and an entertaining plot.

 This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
