Children of the Flying City
The Flying City of Highgate has been home to Milo Quick for as long as he can remember, having been left there by his father when he was five years old. He makes his way by stealing and relying on his friends Jules and Dagda, trying to stay one step ahead of the police. But an army of ships has surrounded Highgate, threatening an attack any day now and tipping everything he knows about his life into the cold and unforgiving waters below. Highgate is already at war with itself, and Milo has to rely on only his wit and luck if he wants to make it out alive…
I liked this book because it was fast paced and energetic, following Milo and his gang through the Flying City from multiple viewpoints with good storytelling and suspense. It weaves together relatable characters and an intriguing storyline, which makes you want to keep flipping the pages, even when it reaches the end! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun, heart-racing story with surprising twists and turns.
