Late Addition to Top Reads List
I just finished Stephen Hunt's The Kingdom Beyond the Waves, and it's so awesome that I had to add it to my list.
Warring countries, kingdoms that float in the air, a sentient jungle, dinosaurs, Victorian-era-esque squalor and class system, adventure, archaeology Indiana Jones-style, metal men with a voodoo religion--what isn't in this book? And somehow it all works, chugging along at a terrific pace and surprising at every turn. There's another book, The Court of the Air, already out and one, The Rise of the Iron Moon, due in March, and I can't wait to spend more time in Hunt's world.
