Summary

More high adventure and invention with an ecological twist, from the Blue Peter Award-winning author of Wildspark and Brightstorm.

Cast out from the clockwork island of Ironhold, where mechanical technology controls everything, Orin Crowfall finds himself adrift on a small boat in the middle of the ocean. As Orin and his robot friend Cody struggle to make sense of the events that brought them here, the one thing they know for sure is that Ironhold is in trouble. They need to get back, whatever the cost.

Plagued by perilous seas and freak storms and with a terrifying sea monster on their tail, Orin soon realises their journey won't be easy. It will take courage and strength, trusting in new friends and embracing the spirit of adventure, if Orin wants to save his home.

Predictable - but fun

I’m a Vashti Hardy fan
The Brightstorm books are superb. However, the ‘SteamPunk’ for kids genre is becoming a little stretched now. I liked the concept of this story, the ecological theme, the importance of caring for natural resources and how rampant technology and urbanisation can be destructive- I get it.
But the story as a whole just felt a little predictable, which is such a shame.
Did I enjoy the story overall? Yes.
Would I recommend the book? Yes, to a 8-9 year old wanting a good starter chapter story.
Would I read it again myself? No, probably not.
Hey… you can’t love every book!
I look forward to Harry’s next story though.
