OK, this world just gets better and better. Airhaven is a town in the sky made up of all sorts of airships. No sparks allowed. Airships. Oh, and moving city London has a monorail. Kind of has that Mad Max feel but more primitive and cities that move around.

Megalomania, anyone? When he finished eating up all the cities and towns, Crone planned to eat up the moon and the planets.

This goes with an earlier post - see if you can figure it out... "Apprentice Engineers tack to and fro among the revelers, handing out experimental snacks prepared by Supervisor Nimmo's department. The snacks are brown and taste rather peculiar, but at least they are cut into perfectly geometrical shapes."

"I will take you back to London," Grike told the girl. "Crome will resurrect you as an iron woman. Your flesh will be replaced with steel, your nerves with wire, your thoughts with electricity. You will be beautiful! You will be my companion, for all time." --(Borg man love, LOL! The above quote was all in caps but I did not feel like shouting out my status update).

This book is full of awesome. Pirate suburbs, resurrected men (kind of like the Borg), so very cool!

"What is that stuff?" "Detrius, Miss Valentine," said Nimmo, sounding proud. "Effluent. Ejecta. Human nutritional by-products." "You mean...poo?" said Katherine, appalled...."Well, now you know where your um...poo ends up. 'Waste not, want not' is the Engineers' motto, Miss. Properly processed human ordure makes very useful fuel for our city's engines. --continued in the comments below.

"Look! A seedy!" Valentine reached into the box and lifted out the disc, tilting it so that the rainbow light darted across its surface. "Quite right," he said. "The Ancients used these in their computers a way of storing information." --This is such a clever YA read. So imaginative.

"It was natural that cities ate towns, just as towns ate smaller towns and smaller towns snapped up the miserable static settlements. That was Municipal Darwinism, and it was the way the world had worked for a thousand years, ever since the great engineer Nikolas Quirke had turned London into the first traction city." --Municipal Darwinism? Sounds scary.

Interesting. In this book, cities move from place to place hunting smaller towns. The city is "...a moving mountain of metal that rose in seven tiers like the layers of a wedding cake, the lower levels wreathed in engine smoke, the villas of the rich gleaming white on the higher decks..."

Catherine It sounds like a very unique world!


message 2: by AH (new) - rated it 4 stars

AH Just fascinating. Every time I think that this author's imagination can't get any more interesting, he adds more cool things. It doesn't feel dumbed down like some YA books.
