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

Thought this one was very interesting. The world in this book was fascinating, and I can't wait to read the next one.

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!
