    One thought on “Underland”

    1. The cover art for this book is by Linzi Goldstone. It is quite simple at first glance but it really does put you inside the story. The subtle steampunk hints are in the art and similarly woven in to the story. Except things are not steam powered. There is a magical field in the Underland.I’d much rather teenagers read books like this rather than ones about sparkly vampires. Underland is a place between worlds. A magical yet industrialized realm tantalizingly close to this one. Only children ca [...]

    2. Warrior Stone is a very diverting and entertaining read that vividly paints its underworld aesthetic in the most unyieldingly drab and dismal colors. It’s to the novel’s credit that its world feels complete within its own logic without resorting to an appeal to steam punk shortcuts like a flight in a dirigible to formulate its fantasy setting.I should say from the outset that I don’t read many books in this style. I’m not even sure if this book fits into the steam-punk genre so I apologi [...]

    3. It's London, Claire - but not as we know it!This book gets off to flying start with Claire, the heroine, introduced and thrown into the action halfway down the first page of the very first chapter. In one swoosh of sliding doors on the last train home, we are transported from the everyday world - the "Real" and into a dangerous adventure set in a fantastic "Underland" parallel world. There's a lot to like about the character Claire (and her foil and mentor Evie) not least because Claire doesn't [...]

    4. Sneaking back from a rock concert, lonely teenager Claire Stone stumbles from her station platform into the mysterious Other-London of Underland, a world just different enough to lull you into a dangerous sense of complacency. Almost before she can draw breath, she’s on the run from a shape-shifting monster, helped by Evie, a mysterious, hardened, Underland Warrior. Evie reluctantly takes Claire under her wing, explaining how Underland is a separate realm from the Real, showing her how to jump [...]

    5. I was given the ebook by the author in exchange for an honest reviewFirstly let me start off by saying that I've not written many reviews. I love books, however, despite this I find myself lacking the skills of a literary genius, so don't expect poetryWarrior Stone: Underland IS poetry! It's beautifully written and I found myself complete immersed in Under-London and the adventure on which the heroine Claire goes on. The steam-punkness of it all wasn't too overwhelming, in fact it was almost bel [...]

    6. Bought this book for my nephew and thought I'd have a peek to see if it was any goodd just had to read the whole thing, fantastic, page turning, action packed adventure with believable characters.On a par with Mortal engines but very different, more mature. Underland London is more believable and the twists in the story leave you wanting more and more. Loved the Grenlick! This really would make great tv

    7. You know it's good when you read it in one sitting.This is Young Adult fiction (so teenage protagonists, and it lacks the complexity of adult fiction) but there's enough to it to make it a good read even for those of us who only vaguely remember being a Young Adult. Claire, who has no friends at school, is on her way back from a rock concert when she ends up in Underland, and meets Evie - a Warrior whose job is to be a sort of boundary warden. There are fights, monsters, and a problem to solve. [...]
