  • Read it!

    Loved it. A futuristic setting with lots of diverse characters, all of whom feel relatable and real. Excellent, fast-paced read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • unique, magical, and very, very fun

    One of my favourite reads this year! This genre-bending adventure did things with sci-fi I haven't seen before: namely, there’s magic, and the magic is technology; the world is super-modern, and our lens on it is very teen-focused. So, there’s lots of emphasis on folks using contact lenses as smartphones, there’s teens playing with rocket boots for fun, and our world is crowded cities inside domes with trains between them and a poisoned world outside. All very unique and evocative stuff! The structure very much felt like a video game: we have a quick and easy tutorial heist, then a big heist that goes wrong, then we go round a bunch of (metaphorical) castles, then to a new city, THEN to the outside to discover some truths, and finally we end up going back to where we started for the big final world-saving mission. I loved this structure, and the style in general: the pacing was great, and there was lots of focus on action sequences. Lastly, the story centres a queer found family of orphaned teens, and there's a lovely anti-capitalist, anti-authoritarian tone to the plot. I'm looking forward to checking out the author's other book, and also, this book led me to think about my life and wonder why I'm not yet using a hoverboard. (I've at least promised myself I'll take an e-bike tour when the world re-opens.)

    Thanks for your feedback!
