"Come with me, Zen Starling" she had said. The girl in the red coat. But how did she know his name?
The Great Network is a place of drones and androids, maintenance spiders and Station Angels. The place of the thousand gates, where sentient trains are criss-crossing the galaxy. Zen Starling is a petty thief, a street urchin from Thunder City.
So when mysterious stranger Raven sends Zen and his new friend Nova on a mission to infiltrate the Emperor's train, he jumps at the chance to traverse the Great Network. I believe that this book was too sci-fi and had too much made up 'gloop'. All of it contains loads of fake words which no-one will understand at the start unless you read the 12 page glossary for hours until you've memorised it all so that you could name them in your sleep! Overall I believe this book is not generally a good read as even some adults I knew were stumped at the first few pages because of the words. So if I were to read this again I would have to give myself something to make me stay awake, because of this I deem this book THE WORST BOOK EVER!!!!!! This has led me to give it 0 stars and no recommendations.
