Inventor Leviticus Blue creates a machine that accidentally decimates Seattle's banking district and uncovers a vein of Blight Gas that turns everyone who breathes it into the living dead. Sixteen years later Briar, Blue's widow, lives in the poor neighborhood outside the wall that's been built around the uninhabitable city. Life is tough with a ruined reputation, but she and her teenage son Ezekiel are surviving--until Zeke impetuously decides that he must reclaim his father's name from the clutches of history.… (más)

There's just about nothing I liked about this. I know it's not the quirky steampunk setting that's the problem, I enjoyed Mortal Engines!

The moment I realized my interest was completely gone was in chapter one where the main character asks a question, then the writing indicates that both characters were completely silent while the main character found her tobacco, rolled a cigarette, and started smoking it. Then the other character answered the question. Come on. ( )

DNF.

I wanted to like this, I really did, but I didn't like the characters and I just found the book to be very awkwardly written. I'm not sure what it was, but I found myself having to re-read some sentences and paragraphs multiple times to get them to stay in my head.

I gave up at 18%. ( )

Skemmtileg hliðarsaga sem gerist á tímum borgarastríðsins í BNA. Klikkaður vísindamaður þróar öfluga borvél sem ætluð er til að grafa eftir gulli en rænir þess í stað bankana í Seattle. Eftir ránið er borgin rústir einar, torkennilegt gas streymir úr iðrum jarðar sem breytir fólki í zombíur og yfirvöld reisa himinháan múr um borgina til að halda gasinu og skrýmslunum í skefjum.
Sonur vísindamannsins heldur inn í borgina til að sanna sakleysi hans, móðir hans heldur á eftir honum til að bjarga honum og þar kynnast þau martraðarkenndri tilveru eftirlifenda sem eiga í valdabaráttu sín á milli ásamt því að óþekktur klikkaður vísindamaður heldur áfram að dæla út byltingarkenndum uppfinningum.
Fínasta heimsuppbygging og það verður fróðlegt að sjá hvernig seinni bækur seríunnar taka á þrælastríðinu. ( )

Briar, one of the main characters, is too polite and along with her son didn’t grab me, too shallow a story. The others had more interest and the end was a bit flat. Unsure if I'll read the second in the series. ( )

Overall, Priest has created a terrific story that will please endless science fiction fans in search of a thrill.

Priest’s latest, very simply rocks: It’s not only the steampunk adventure you’ve been waiting for, it’s the steampunk adventure you can give to friends of yours who wonder what the hell’s up with all those Victorian overcoats and goggles.

It's full of buckle and has swash to spare, and the characters are likable and the prose is fun. This is a hoot from start to finish, pure mad adventure.

In this age of invention the science of arms has made great progress. In fact, the most remarkable inventions have been made since the prolonged wars of Europe in the early part of the century, and the short Italian campaign of France in 1859 served to illustrate how great a power the engines of destruction can exert.

-- Thomas P. Kettell, History of the Great Rebellion. From its commencement its close, giving an account of its origin, The Secession of the Southern States, and the Formation of the Confederate Government, the concentration of the Military and Financial resources of the federal government, the development of its vast power, the raising, organizing, and equipping of the contending armies and navies; lucid, vivid, and accurate descriptions of battles and bombardments, sieges and surrender of forts, captured batteries, etc., etc.; the immense financial resources and comprehensive measures of the government, the enthusiasm and patriotic contributions of the people, together with sketches of the lives of all the eminent statesmen and military and naval commanders, with a full and complete index.

Unpaved, uneven trails pretended to be roads; they tied the nation's coasts together like laces holding a boot, binding it with crossed strings and crossed fingers.
