By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Mothstorm - Philip Reeve Mothstorm
by Philip Reeve
Another third book set in Victorian England, although a very different Victorian England than Lady Emily's, Mothstorm begins with the Mumby family intending to celebrate a quiet Christmas at home in Larklight with their friends. Unfortunately, a message of danger arrives and the whole gang promptly goes off to rescue the world (for the third time in a year). I always enjoy Arthur's very British Boy style, especially when interposed with Myrtle's journal entries. Apparently, this is the last in the trilogy? I'm sorry to see the last of the Mumby's and confess that I hope Reeve and Wyatt will return to the series at some point.
