Praise for Stephen Hunt: 'A ripping yarn ! the story pounds along ! constant inventiveness keeps the reader hooked ! the finale is a cracking succession of cliffhangers and surprise comebacks. Great fun' SFX 'An inventive, ambitious work, full of wonders and marvels' Lisa Tuttle, The Times 'The characters are convincing and colourful, but the real achievement is the setting, a hellish take on Victorian London ! the depth and complexity of Hunt's vision makes it compulsive reading for all ages' Guardian 'Wonderfully assured ! Hunt knows what his audience like and gives it to them with a sardonic wit and carefully developed tension' Time Out 'Studded with invention' Independent 'Rich and colourful ! keeps you engrossed ! a confident, audacious novel' SFX 'Like a magpie, Stephen Hunt has plucked colourful events from history and politics and used them for inspiration ! Hunts tells his full-blooded tale with lip-smacking relish, revealing a vivid, often gruesome imagination ! The Court of the Air brims with originality and, from the first, its chase-filled plot never lets up' Starburst 'To say this book is action packed is almost and understatement ! a wonderful escapist yarn! Definitely a book to take with you on a long flight' Interzone

A small band of unlikely heroes is the only hope. Molly Templar, a celestial fiction writer who suddenly starts having visions of the heximachina. Purity Drake, quite mad, yet with royal blood running through her veins. Kyorin, an alien in hiding, hoping to save what was left of his own world from the Army of Shadows. Magic and machinery must come together and secrets too dark to believe must come to light.
Not having read the first two books in this series, I felt a little lost at first. It took a little time before I got a feel for the world and began getting into the characters of the story. After that point, though, I found it hard to put the book down. Absolutely loved the twists and turns and the surprising directions and mis-directions the action took.

I can't recommend Stephen Hunt's work enough, for he is a talented storyteller.
If you are a fan of SF&F and have read a lot of the early works in the genre then you will find this to be highly derivative. I spent more time thinking of where the different pieces of this book originally came from than I did actually enjoying the story and I chose not to finish reading the book.
