Stephen Hunt – The Court of the Air

An enjoyable fantasy/steampunk sort of story. Two likeable young protagonists rarely cross paths as they move from ignorance to implausible power through the book. They get caught and escape again a few too many times, so I eventually started saying “come on, Hunt, just get on with the story”. Hunt is a religious believer in show-don’t-tell, so much so that I still am not sure of everybody’s roles in this story.

Still, as a roller-coaster type ride through Hunt’s world, it was worth reading.
