This book is a perfect anti-cliche, with an inner meaning, that nothing ever works out perfectly, there are no heros or storybook endings.

I really liked this book! I felt what the characters were feeling, which was pretty cool. I definitely want to read the rest of the series!

I read little YA, but really enjoyed this and devoured the rest of the series.

Excellent, I am going to read the rest of the series.

Excellent series, much better than a lot of "adult" SF I have read lately.

This is my all time favorite book, it is a must read for teen or even adult science fiction readers, and has a very good storyline that twists throughout the books and prequels.

A great, steampunk-based book, set in a torn up and desolate world where cities move along the ground like oversized turtles. First scene is London chasing down and EATING a smaller salt mining town. Huzzah!
