Ugh. I hated the boy is one of the main characters and his mother wasn't much better. There were some sympathetic side characters, but the ending had no resolution for them. The writing was bland at best and filled with bizarre usages at worst. An airship "seeped upward" and light was "wet like orange." What? The ending was rushed and flat. I get the impression from looking at the listing here on goodreads that this is part of a series, but the book itself did nothing to imply that. It just seemed to end with people just disappearing off stage with grievous wounds and never being cared about again. Overall, I didn't care for this at all.
