Railhead is a book about railways which lead between other places in the universe. It falls under the Sci-Fi category and the time it sets in is in about the year 2500. Anyway, the story follows a man called Zen Starling who is a thief and has to steal something. That something is something very valuable and is stolen for a man named something like Dhravad Raven. He meets a Motorik* on the way and likes her.

In my opinion, it has great characters and a good storyline, however it does go a little bit slowly near the middle. I also think that the ending is designed for a sequel. I think that it was one of the best books in the CILIP Carnegie challenge.
