the middle was disappointing

the beginning was good, the ending was good, the middle was insufferable. I only finished it because the first book was Mortal engines. Without giving too much away, I struggled through that cliche big misunderstanding Trope where all the characters have an unneeded conflict and then have to go and mope and do things that are completely out of their character. if you can get through that, it's almost worth it for the end.

The last book left me wanting more. This delivered. Spoiler: Some favourite characters return! even a dead one!
The lost boys were an incredible surprise addition!

A wonderful sequel that has you grabbing for the next book immediately. If you read book 1, but this one and book 3 right away.

Very enjoyable

I enjoyed this second book even more than the first. Sometimes a bit simplistic, but fun to listen to.

a much better book than the first.

I was ready to give up on audio books after the first book, but I had extra credits left. Compared to the first book, this time the stakes are lower, the style better, the characters more likable. The author has convinced me to hang on to his mortal engines and I'll pick up the next in the series with my next credit.
