“Starcross,” by Philip Reeve

Book Cover Art for Starcross by Philip Reeve“Starcross,” by Philip Reeve is a fantastic adventure story set in an alternate reality Victorian world in which airships sail the “aether,” taking passengers to the most distant parts of the solar system.

Art Mumby and his sister Myrtle live a rather exciting and unusual life. Indeed that is to be expected when your mother is a “five thousand million year old entity from another star” and creator of your solar system. Art and Myrtle discovered their mother’s secret past in “Larklight,” book one of the Larklight series. When their mother stepped in to save the universe from an invasion of giant spiders, she did it with her usual grace and careful calmness, but it left Myrtle embarrassed by the fact that her mother is different, and it left Art wondering would happen next.

Thanks for commenting!

"Starcross" is a phenomenal masterpiece of writing. Just like you I also love the way David Wyatt's illustrations add extra life to the text. They are a perfect team, and I hope that we can expect many more installments of the Larklight series.
