This book feels more like a YA novel. Nothing wrong with that, yet it would be more honest to market it that way.
But that is not why I rate it 3 stars. I had however higher hopes after good experience with a number of the writer's imaginative short stories.
Without really spoiling anything, the book follows a very peculiar kid (the initial chapters were quite well done); soon his presence in a far-future kind of bizarre human colony that has regressed to steampunk technology level will trigger disastrous violence. It also turns out that he is not alone, his siblings are even more peculiar and scary.
I prefer not to say much more about the plot, this is enough to set the scene. The worldbuilding is rather nice and original, I could see this work as a modern animation series for example. But sadly for me the plotlines and characters did not really work. It is all in all a pretty simple adventure story, again nothing wrong with that, but the interaction between the characters and rivalry between the bizarre siblings is not as suspenseful or emotionally interesting as I would have hoped. This is a hefty book if you read it in paper format. I love big books, they can really immerse you; but a book should never feel stretched, and here I regulary have that feeling.

Robert Reed creates such amazing worlds in his writing, and at his best he structures his narratives with the technical surety of really great American writers (William Maxwell springs to mind). But his books really need to be copyedited. Incomplete sentences and noun verb disagreements not only interrupt the flow of reading, but they bring down the caliber of the writing. That said, I'll read anything Reed writes!

This story goes nowhere. There is a lot of great writing, ideas, and plot, but nothing is accomplished or revealed. It's a bit like Lost: questions are continually hinted at but never answered, and their relevance to events just grows. Unlike Reed's other novels, this leaves the reader dissatisfied, always expecting explanations that grow increasingly more complex to fit the story to arrive, but they never do. Reed's other books are great and this is good for a while, but feels 50 pages too short.
