Book Reviews / July 16, 2016

Fans of Philip Reeve’s futuristic “Mortal Engines” quartet or “Larklight” trilogy will be glad to know the author is back with a new steampunk odyssey, which takes place in a future where passengers ride trains (that have their own personalities and consciousness) between worlds. At the beginning of “Railhead”, Zen Starling is just a petty thief who loves to ride the rails when he can. Before long he’s caught up in a swirl of events that will not only change his life but will also alter the course of civilization.
