I probably should have given it a 4, because I really do love this series, and Arlo was an interesting new character.

Fever (and Fern and Ruan) have joined a traveling theater, Persimmon's Electric Lyceum; Fever as the electrician in charge of lighting and special effects, Ruan as her helper and scenery painter, and Fern as a budding actress. Life is good until they come to Mayda-at-the-World's-End where Fever meets Arlo. Arlo is the descendant of master ship builders. He talks with angels (a genetically modified bird) and is obsessed with heavier than air flight. Of course Fever is fascinated by the possibilities.

I wanted the story to go differently, but it all rang very true to human nature, so I can only hope we have not heard the last of Arlo, or Fever, either.
