Book Review: Golden Door by Emily Rodda - Reviewed by (01 Nov 2011)

Alexandar, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, returns to the airship Leviathan, exemplar of Darwinist technology, a living craft 300 metres long. He leaves behind him the Ottoman revolution, but brings with him the perspicacious Loris Bovril, whose English seems to be improving. Alek feels his destiny is to bring peace to the world, and Leviathan’s new mission will introduce him to a potential ally-but can the ultimate weapon really bring peace? Meanwhile, his friend and crewmate Deryn’s secret life seems more precarious than ever: is it only a matter of time until she is found out as a girl, and what will become of her when she is? Mad scientists, media moguls and revolutionaries all enter the mix in this climactic story of a world war in a very different world. This is the final volume of Scott Westerfeld’s steampunk/ biopunk alternate-history action-adventure trilogy, and it maintains the breakneck pace and wild inventiveness of Leviathan and Behemoth. Alek and Deryn are engaging leads, and Westerfeld’s world is a fascinating one, enriched by Keith Thompson’s illustrations. This is a ripping yarn-highly recommended, and compulsory reading for fans of the earlier volumes. (5 Stars)

Book Review: Golden Door by Emily Rodda - Reviewed by (02 Sep 2011)

The walled city of Weld is under the attack of flying creatures from the outside. These ferocious beasts are killing the residents of Weld, but no one is to leave the city. The Warden, the leader of Weld, is asking for volunteers to go and stop the flying creatures from ever coming back to Weld. Slowly, one by one, all the heroes of Weld have left, including Rye's dearly beloved brothers. He is not old enough to go out and venture around Weld to find his brothers, Dirk and Sholto. He escaped anyway, but only left with the dilemma of choosing only ONE door to go through. Will he find his brothers?
