Skyships, storms, rebels in love. This author’s barely older than you, but she’s dreamed up the coolest steampunk world in ages. Get your velvet cape and chunky boots ready. You’re in for an epic flight. Catherine Hunter is the daughter of a senior government official on the island of Anglya. She’s one of the privileged: with luxurious clothes, plenty to eat, and nothing to fear from the terrifying Collections. (Plus a clockwork servant. Very cool.) But Cat yearns to escape. So she stows away on the skyship Stormdancer, braving the storms that tear open the skies around the island of Tellus. Turbulence. Danger. Secrets. She’s flying headlong into them all.
- A steampunk yarn set in a sky-high alternative universe
- Full of strong characters, wild exploits and deadly danger
- Lucy Saxon was only sixteen when she wrote this book
- First in a series of books set in the world of Tellus
“Absolutely cracking … a delicious cocktail incorporating steampunk, His Dark Materials and George Orwell. About as good a YA adventure as you’ll see all year.” SFX
