I found Railhead an interesting futuristic sci-fi book. The story starts off very quickly, with a young street thief called Zen Starling attempting to steal a necklace from a stall. It really throws you straight into the story, alongside the characters.
There are not as many good science fiction books as there are other genres, but this is certainly one of them. I absolutely love the idea of the trains being used to hop across the universe. It strays away from the default rocket or spaceship transport, which can get boring after a while.
I also like how the locomotives have different names and personalities like people. 4 out of 5 stars.
