Mrs Taylor, Highams Park School


Science Fiction and fantasy are not my preference but I persevered with this book, because I had to, and quite enjoyed it. I did think it was a bit like Thomas the Tank Engine for older readers with thinking trains, acting of their own volition. The writing was very clever but harder work for me, having to take on board a fantasy world of unfamiliar vocabulary. I didn't refer to the glossary at the back as I was reading and, by the time I'd finished the book, I didn't feel the need or inclination to look at the glossary. I would have liked some resolution for Zen's family. But, is Railhead the first of a series of books?
