Read full description of the books:
This was such a brilliant book, but at the same time such a harrowing read! I guess when the main plot of a book is a huge war then it's clearly not going to be all sunshine and daisies, but there were some really awful moments. (Gwen Natsworthy's hair flapping in the breeze like a flag. : ) Charley Shallow was a chilling villain. What a psychopath! His cold, calculated reasoning was horrible and yet you could see that it made sense. I think Dr Crumb's gradual transition into a completely rational man of science was just as chilling, though, if not more so, because he started off as likeable. It's strange: in Fever Crumb I liked Dr Crumb and thought him a far better parent than Wavey. But as I read this book I found myself warming to Wavey and completely going off Dr Crumb. How people change!
Anyway, onto the things I did love. First and foremost: Cluny Morvish!!! Oh my goodness, Cluny. Her broad hips and her mammoth-coloured hair and the way she "didn't just roll her Rs; she bowled them". And her hunting and tracking skillz! How amazing was she! And the love story! I can't praise highly enough books where there's a girl/girl romance that happens as naturally as a boy/girl relationship with no fuss or indication that this is different or special. And Cluny and Fever worked so well together! I never liked immature Arlo, so I was glad that Fever got over him and moved on. Fever and Cluny were so different, and there were moments of huge betrayal between them, but in the end they learnt from each other. So wonderful. ♥
I also loved the nightwights, and the whole mystery of Skrevanastuut, and the journey that Fever, Cluny, and Marten made to get there. Mammoths! And the scenery of the north with the icebergs and the beach and the Fuel Country. I absolutely pored over the map at the front of the book.
There were some really amusing bits too. Like when Cluny and Marten are talking about nightwights and Fever says, "The Guild of Engineers does not accept the existence of nightwights." Three pages on, when they're being attacked by nightwights, Fever thinks, "So much for the Guild of Engineers. If she ever got back alive to London she would have to set them straight on the anthropology of the north." I suppose that's also a nice illustration of how Fever gradually comes to reject the more extreme aspects of her upbringing among the engineers. Her eventual acceptance of her feelings was lovely.
I would be happy for the series to end here, with everything hopeful and happy and settled, but at the same time I would love to read more about Fever and Cluny! I confess: I am more than a little bit smitten with them both.
