In book three in the series featuring Fever Crumb, we are once again plunged into a world that is strange and yet all too familiar. A world full of superstition, nomads, genetic anomalies, old tech, ‘bloggers’ and best of all...mammoths! How I would love to ride one of these splendid creatures... mind you I wouldn’t fancy being squashed by New London. As always, by about page five, I have forgotten that I am reading the result of hours of keyboard pounding coming from Philip’s room, and am swept away into the story. Beautifully created characters, an exciting plot with twists and turns, never predictable, always vivid and surprising... and utterly believable.
