4.0 out of 5 stars Like No Other Book, 17 Mar 2009
This review is from: The Kingdom Beyond the Waves (Paperback)
I enjoyed this book thoroughly and if you are a bit of a steampunk fan then this would probably apeal to you as well. It's not completely steampunk but has many of the artifices used. Slightly more sureal and clearly based upon a Victorian England but with many of the Victorian facets stretched to their extremes. It's a good adventure yarn too. A race through forbidden lands with a band of brigands coming up against mad professor types, weird life, monsters, and treacherous companions. If I could put a mix of genres together that describe Stephen Hunt's books (the two in this series) would be steampunk, a little sci-fi, some H Rider Haggard and a liberal dose of the ghastly. I don't give it five stars because it perhaps tries too hard to be different and maybe can be a little over the top. Good book overall though for alternate history and sci-fi fans.
