I’ve just finished reading The Court of the Air by Stephen Hunt. It’s a brilliantly fast 600 pages. It’s science fiction…I guess? The lines delineating how things like this are classified are fairly blurry. It’s got sci fi elements, and adventure elements, and buddy story elements, and gods and self creating steam driven metal entities, it’s good fun. I highly recommend it.
I wandered around with a book in front of me for a day and a half. I was teaching my son geography and while he was labeling things, I was reading furiously. I just couldn’t put it down. It’s like a chase scene that never ends.
I would have liked a little more detail at the end, or perhaps that it was that I was so vested in the female protagonist that I just couldn’t bear to close the book on her.
