Author of the widely acclaimed Larklight books, Philip Reeve won the Gold Nestlé Smarties Book Prize and was shortlisted for the Whitbread Prize Children's Book Award.

At the edge of space, a mysterious cloud appears. The last transmission from a remote outpost near the cloud warns of grave danger. Now Art, Myrtle, and the rest of the family launch an investigation - and what they find is so horribly, terribly monstrous that not even a billion mothballs will keep it at bay!

    " See review for Larklight "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clara | 2/10/2014

    " I wish I floated about in zero BSG. Huzzah! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frances | 2/3/2014

    " The most interesting aspect of this book -- the third in the Larklight series -- is the continuing development of the character of Myrtle, the annoying older sister of the main narrator. Unlike its predecessors, it's chock full of strong female characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 1/31/2014

    " If this is the last book in this series (which the ending seems to give the general feeling of), then I will be sad, because the trilogy of books for Larklight were really quite marvy. This was the best of the three, I think, with such an interesting foe to face and really humorous punchlines that I'll be quoting around the house for a while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 1/25/2014

    " I didn't think it was as fabulous as the first two, but still great. I laughed aloud multiple times. Be aware, though, that there's not a lot of retelling what happened in earlier books. I generally like that, but I could not remember who Grindle was, so I was confused for a little while. So yeah. Read this at the same time as the other two. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 1/22/2014

    " A great final book to a great series. Some parts of the plot seemed predictable at times, but I'm not sure whether that was the author's doing or my own awareness of the genre and tropes. As always, this installation in the Larklight series was filled with adventure, clever and funny writing, and really delightful characters. As a final book, it serves its purpose: the reader is able to imagine for themselves further adventures for the Mumby's and their friends, but the overall story is brought to a definite and satisfying conclusion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Starkville Public Library Young Adult Section | 1/21/2014

    " The third (and possibly the last) in a series, I think this was possibly the funniest and most well-written of the three. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arwen | 1/17/2014

    " I think this is the final book in silly space opera series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Morris | 1/15/2014

    " This series finished as strong as it started; one of the most entertaining children's series I've come across. I can't wait for the movies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 1/2/2014

    " Wonderful! I want another one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine Siemann | 1/1/2014

    " Delightful as always, with an extra dose of girl power this time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 11/27/2013

    " Absolutely ripping good fun! I'm such a ridiculous Philip Reeve fangirl. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ami | 7/1/2013

    " I enjoyed this book but the other books were better. I don't know if it was because I was sad that this was the last book in the series. Maybe all the moths just grossed me out a bit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathrine Bonham | 7/10/2012

    " A fitting end to an amazing Journey. The only dissapointing thing about this book is that it looks like it will be the last. All of the loose ends have been neatly tied and everyone seems to be happy. Oh if only the author had left some hope for more books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 6/13/2012

    " Fun ending for a fun series. Although I'm going to have to side with Art with the whole MyrtleXJack thing. What DOES he see in her??? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Traci Haley | 4/27/2012

    " This series never fails to delight me, especially the audiobook version. The narrator is perfect and the story is always a mix of steampunk and tongue-in-cheek adventure. This one was excellent, as usual; it had more surprising twists than the last two! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fuzzy | 11/26/2011

    " I've been enjoying all of Philip Reeve's Larklight books and the third one, Mothstorm: The Horror from Beyond Georgium Sidus!, is no exception. The Victorian steampunky spaceflight thing is still hitting all the right buttons in my brain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fiona | 7/11/2011

    " Like the rest of the series, it's great...except for the annoying personality of Myrtle. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miss Clark | 5/12/2011

    " Little sis read it and liked very well, so we discussed it. I loved the ending:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 4/19/2011

    " Such a cute book. I like the mixture of Victorian and space technology. But, of course, you have to read Larklight and Starcross first. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 3/19/2011

    " This series finished as strong as it started; one of the most entertaining children's series I've come across. I can't wait for the movies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick | 2/27/2011

    " A thrilling conclusion to the Larklight trilogy. All bets are off as Philip Reeve builds suspense chapter after chapter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frances | 10/7/2010

    " The most interesting aspect of this book -- the third in the Larklight series -- is the continuing development of the character of Myrtle, the annoying older sister of the main narrator. Unlike its predecessors, it's chock full of strong female characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TheRose | 8/27/2010

    " I'm hoping Mr. Reeve & Mr. Wyatt aren't considering this series ended..MORE, PLEASE! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah | 1/17/2010

    " My favorite of this series so far! "

    " Not my favorite of the Larklight Trilogy, but still so much fun and so imaginative! I recommend them and I'm sad to see it end!! "
