Very unique concept and there were some very pleasing surprises with the relationships and interactions between the characters. I haven't decided, yet, how I feel about the end. I WILL be reading the next book, though!

This book was one of my favorites, and inspired me to make a game called Gears using java. I've read the whole series now, and I can tell that this book is a five star. Full with steampunk and science fiction, this book is set about 10000 years from today in a postapolyptic world. This would delight all readers who like reading science fiction.

This book is a perfect anti-cliche, with an inner meaning, that nothing ever works out perfectly, there are no heros or storybook endings.

Thought this one was very interesting. The world in this book was fascinating, and I can't wait to read the next one.

I really liked this book! I felt what the characters were feeling, which was pretty cool. I definitely want to read the rest of the series!

Excellent series, much better than a lot of "adult" SF I have read lately.

A great, steampunk-based book, set in a torn up and desolate world where cities move along the ground like oversized turtles. First scene is London chasing down and EATING a smaller salt mining town. Huzzah!
