I managed to read this book in a day. For those who love books – and let’s be honest, if you’re reading a book review you obviously love books – this is an adventure you are going to want to take. The writing was intelligent and fun and the adventure had me engaged from start to finish.
I particularly enjoyed the dirigible, but I’m one of those people who loves steampunk flavor whenever she can get it.
For those parents who need to know, this novel is safe for young adults. It does draw up interesting themes of chaos versus order, and some of the conversations may be better fit for a more mature crowd, but there are no explicit scenes you need to beware of.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself whilst reading and have already picked up the second novel in the series. Given the amount of time it took me to read the first, I’d say this was a good popcorn novel for people who need something while traveling via plane.
