Like 'Mortal Engines', Reeves sets his novel in the future but this is a world where trains are living and jump through K gates that take them to different worlds. The main character, Zen Starling, discovers that his past is a lie and is asked to put his thieving skills to the test for the shadowy Raven.
I really enjoyed this book. It took me a while to get into it because all the new information about this future world bombarded me at the start but I soon really cared about Zen and his journey. Reeve creates an alternative world where there is a stark difference between those who have money and power and, those who don't. It ends on a cliffhanger which made me want to read the next installment. A book full of adventure and fantasy.
