Why did you get this book? I found it in a science fiction and fantasy bookshop having heard about it on a podcast.
Did you enjoy the book? Yes.
Was the author new to you? I had previously read the first book in the series.
Would you read something by this author again? Yes.
Are you keeping it or passing it on? I am keeping it.
Anything else? This is the second book in the Edge Chronicles series. I generally like hard science fiction more than fantasy. I was interested to see how the interaction of story with illustration in this case worked out. It worked out fine in this case. On the whole a good read. I had some problems with the continuity of the story towards the end. The authors have created an interesting universe for their tales. This tale has a pleasantly unpleasant villain.
