Reactions and Reviews

A very well thought out before-the-start-of-the-series story. She develops an interesting and consistent background as she follows the lives of some of our heroes before they ended up on the London. [1]
"The Way to Rebellion" by Ros Williams - that's a prequel to the series. It's all very plausible, and I know some people are very fond of all six volumes of this epic, but I personally found that I was always expecting a really good bit when I got to the next page. Then I'd get to the next page and find it wasn't so brilliant after all. I'm not very keen on Ros's stuff overall. She tends to make the character's emotions fit the needs of the plot, rather than vice versa.[2]
