Zen Starling is a petty thief, hopping on and off the sentient trains that speed across the galaxy, hoping he won't get caught by a drone or one of the Guardians. When he is approached by the mysterious Raven to infiltrate the Emperor's train, he jumps at the chance of adventure, crossing the Great Network and dodging danger at every turn. But, in his thirst for excitement, does Zen really understand what he's getting into?
This is a brilliant and exhilarating read which rattles along like one of its speeding trains - fast paced and exciting. It has a kind of retro, old fashioned and strangely exotic feel to its futuristic sci-fi theme. A definite must-read for anyone who loves a good adventure!
