A rollicking magical realism story about the Boundless train that ran across Canada. Circuses, sasquatch, march hags, and all sorts of fascinating characters keep the pages turning faster than an engine's wheels at full throttle. AND it has the Kenne ...more

This was okay in my book. The writing as a bit choppy, but the premise (a Jules Verne treasure hunt) was fun, and there were lots of plot twists to keep you guessing. It helps to have read the original Verne novels (which are considerably harder read ...more

Fabulous premise: Lord of the Flies with a superhero twist, and just the inkling of a super-baddie. While the writing drags at times, there are enough plot twists to keep the reader reading.

While I'm not a huge mystery fan, I did enjoy this book. Spirit's relationship with the baldies kept me reading. I guess my main concern is that I was not able to figure out the mystery until I was told at the end. I didn't see many clues that would ...more

It's super to see African mythology and characters in fantasy stories. Thank you Ms. Adeyemi! Great action, really likable characters, and intense emotions throughout. A really awful villain, too!
