Summary

There was nothing, and then there was a train. A train with two passengers: a petty thief from a dead-end town, and an android girl who could be more human than the rest of us. Join Zen and Nova as they find out what really lies beyond the end of the universe....

Full of extraordinary beings and utterly real, complex characters, this is a stunning step beyond the universe we already know....

Critic reviews

Great sequel

Took a risk on Railhead, which was richly rewarding, then immediately bought Black Light Express. Not disappointed, another great read & looking forwards to the next one.
