What I like most about Martha Wells is her ability to make enticing worlds to explore and she treats us to a feast here, a steampunk world with a hollow core, an inner sun, and just enough adventurous philosophers & engineers to get us there & back. It's very reminiscent of Jules Verne and HG Wells, and has an episodic feel that gives me an authentically Victorian vibe. The book is written for the younger end of the YA spectrum, it's fun fast read, and though I did wish it could be a little deeper I thoroughly enjoyed myself while reading it.
