Lauryn, Ousedale School -Olney


I personally really enjoyed this book. Overall I think Philip Reeves did a great job of bringing to life such an imaginative universe full of all sorts of beautiful worlds and interesting characters. I liked the wide range of characters in this book from the daring teenage thief Zen Starling down to a Motorik who wants freckles.

I found the concept of the locomotives having personalities interesting as well as all the other futuristic content such as the headsets and the Guardians.The ending left me wandering what lies beyond the new K-Gate so I will be hoping to get my hands on a sequel!

My only criticism about this book is that it was slightly difficult to remember all the names of the different technology, worlds and characters throughout the story but other than that it was great.
