Great story! Setting up for the rest of the trilogy and based on all of Abercrombie's previous books, this brings 2 generations clashing together with a steampunk twist. Just great, and Pacey narrates with his normal gusto.

read this as a teenager, revisited with audible. particular credit must go to the narrator for what I think we the most accomplished piece of vocal acting. screams, impersonators, stuttering, women, children and monsters all achieved without strain. I hope Mr Weber gets the plaudits he deserves for this work.

great start to a promising series. a coming of age dystopian future which is essentially a war game.
think hunger games without the sugary coating, this feels like the lord of the flies spun into blade runner. visceral, fast paced sci-fi

a real classic

I never read this as a child and don't know how it escaped my attention until now. at times rather chilling, I'm not entirely sure how this was ever billed as a children's story. the narration or telling of the story was fantastic and added massively to my enjoyment. anyone who enjoys Hornblower will love this.

dense, layered and referencing some of his previous novels, this has to be David Mitchell's best to date. set from the 1980's to the 2030's, there are moments of familiarity and also chilling glimpses of the future. all of the many narrators have done good work here too.
