Nothing is what it seems. Merpeople riding carriages and waltzing about on land with automaton legs, cities crying out to their stewards of impending dangers while a dangerous virus hits the countryside where the ill are sent to places for organ harvesting. This is the world where 14 year-old Nick lives and all he wants to do is go back to the moon.
I have to admit, before I could snuggle up under my blankies with this fantastical book, my son beat me to it. He read it in a single day and raved. I had to see what was up.
Kevin McGill has a refreshingly fresh perspective in world-building and I enjoyed the depths he took his character development as well. I enjoyed the jaunty dialogue the characters shared as well as the dark villains that had hunted poor Nick.
This is a quick read that had me wanting more.
