From goodreads.comI love the world Westerfeld has created. This book was amazing.
Alek and Deryn are still awesome in this book and I still love both of them. All of the characters are certainly good at keeping secrets. I also fell in love with a new character in the book, a certain perspicacious little furry creature who was good at figuring out people's secrets- he definately made me laugh at times. I love Deryn's bravery and how much she wants to help Alek and how Alek wants to help her. Their friendship was real and I felt that I connected with the characters.
It was definately fast-paced and interesting. I couldn't put it down until I knew what happened to Alek and Deryn. This book takes you on a journey to far away places in a time of war. I think it's interesting how it has some similarities to what really happened in history, but it's still completely different.
Really awesome book that you guys should all read. I give it 9/10.
