    " A space adventure set in an alternate Victorian England? Yes, I'm all for that. "

    " The first installation of the Larklight series introduces readers to a science-fiction world with clear inspiration from Jules Verne and HG Wells, yet with an approach toward science that veers closer to the Ptolemaic. While the plot chugs along and the characters are interesting, perhaps the most winning aspect of this book to me is its intriguing post-colonial slant. For a children's book it is unusual to find something that does not shy away from some of the ugliness of imperialism when dealing with the historical (or in this case, pseudo-historical) British Empire - and better yet, it addresses these without resorting to tiresome and essentialist moralizing. "

    " These were set in the 1800's as if space travel had been discovered long ago. Yet every thing else in the story was the same as our 1800's. Very original, very cute, and witty. Great book and there are two more!!! "

    " This was my first Steampunk book and it's made me a fan for life. Cute, funny, and well-written! "
