This book was not what I was expecting and that is a good thing. The cover of this is terribly misleading - it looks like juvenile fiction and the drawing resembles anime. In truth, this is a YA book and is not anything close to anime. It actually reminds me more of Reeve's Mortal Engines series with a hint of A Wrinkle In Time thrown in. This is a good book, but I am afraid it will be overshadowed by other titles, namely because the cover just doesn't do the book justice. This is a somewhat steampunk, apocalyptic story of a teen girl and her brother who have to save the world in six days with the help of two strange teens who are clueless about London, scavenging and the artifact that the Russian Vlads are set on locating. What lead to the current chaotic situation is not discussed at length and is relatively unimportant. What happens to the four in the plot is important and somewhat mind-blowing as well. The Wrinkle In Time part of the story is what kicks this book up a notch and makes it not only enjoyable, but compelling as well. I wish the cover were different. I just don't know if this book has a shot...
