Product description

Review

A Utah Beehive Award Nominee
An Andre Norton Award Reading List Selection

"Abundant humor, intricate worldbuilding details, and precisely timed slapstick and mayhem mesh as neatly as the gears and levers of the water abacus, producing a gorgeously articulated clockwork of a novel." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Engaging characters and an action-packed plot are bolstered by some meaningful observations on
Martian colonialism...this will appeal to fans of zany adventure tales." --Booklist

"Samphire is clearly having the time of his life with this yarn, leavening character types with emotional honesty . . . A bit Tom Swift-meets-early Heinlein, joyfully modernizing space pulp for a new audience."--Kirkus Reviews

"Science fiction meets classic adventure tales in this quirky novel, and it's a real treat to know that it's the first in an intended series." --The Bulletin

"Spiced with exciting illustrations and plenty of humor . . . Short, action-filled chapters and a satisfying denouement will have readers clamoring for the next installment." --VOYA
