In a far-future, post-technological London, where Piccadilly Circus has become Pickled Eel Circus and “blog” is a favored expletive, heroine Fever Crumb struggles to unravel her mysterious past and find her place in the changing world. Author Philip Reeve's gently British narration may well remind listeners of Neil Gaiman's reading of THE GRAVEYARD BOOK—Reeve demonstrates the same storyteller's passion for his world and words and the same affection for his characters. Rough characters get rough accents, suspense builds and builds, and every bit of clever wordplay and brilliant imagery leaps off the page. The result will leave listeners utterly charmed and eager for the next installment in the series. J.M.D. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2011]
