So, what did I think of Steampunk? Well, once I’d caught my breath from all the edge-of-your-seat adventure, I must say, I think this is a genre I will be devouring at a rapid pace now I have discovered it.
Ross Kitson has thrown four teenagers together into a story that opens with action and doesn’t stop until the very end. Sam sees monsters and hides behind a tough exterior rather than admit it. Nick is your classic geek. Annie is what happens when the Amish are trained as ninjas and Ben did own up to seeing monsters and ended up in a mental facility.
In to the mix you need to add some hard to kill androids and a couple of time rifts. Oh, and the Infinity Bridge – which is what everyone wants. Only problem is, if the androids get to it first, the human race is doomed.
There is also poor Merlin who is trapped inside a smartphone-like device. When this character was first introduced, I was so excited! Anyone who knows me, knows that The Ancient Future by Traci Harding is one of my favourite books of all time. Here, in Kitson’s book, we have another example of the alternate history genre that I truly adore.
After reading this book, I can’t wait to start on Ross Kitson’s Darkness Rising series. All of which can be purchased from Amazon.com and Amazon UK via the links below:
