Pure dead brilliant!
, as Deryn might say.
This book kept my attention, I loved the characters, enjoyed the alternate history unfolding and the imagination behind it all. I just wish I could read the rest of the story now
. Still, it is nice to be able to really look forward to a series and this one certainly affords me that opportunity.
Deryn and Alek are great characters, but Nora Barlow is quite fun too. And an excellent cover. Can't wait to see what happens next...Behemoth
, book two in the series, is due out a year from now, October 2010.
