The stunning conclusion to the acclaimed and prizewinning Railhead trilogy. What happens after the adventure of a lifetime? For Zen; it's a safe; comfortable life of luxury. But it's not what Zen wants. He misses the thrill of riding the rails; of dodging danger; and of breathing the air of different planets. Most of all of course he misses Nova - lost to him forever in a distant world. But then one day a mysterious message arrives - and that's all Zen needs to head right off; ready for anything. Except that no one could be ready for what he finds . . . Thrilling; thought-provoking; and breathtaking; this finale to the Railhead trilogy weaves a web of wonder; full of characters and events you will never forget.
There was nothing; and then there was a train. A train with two passengers: a petty thief from a dead-end town; and an android girl who could be more human than the rest of us. Join Zen and Nova as they find out what really lies beyond the end of the universe . . . Take a ride in Philip Reeve's incredible imagination as he returns with this stellar follow-up to Railhead. Full of extraordinary beings and utterly real; complex characters; of thrills and thoughtful moments; this is a stunning step beyond the universe which will appeal to both sci-fi fans and foes alike.
Step Aboard - the Universe is Waiting. The Great Network is a place of drones and androids; Hive Monks and Station Angels. The place of the thousand gates; where sentient trains criss-cross the galaxy in a heartbeat. It is also a place of great dangers - especially for someone who rides the rails and rides his luck the way Zen Starling does. Once Zen was just a petty thief; stealing to support his family and living by his wits. Now everything has changed. Zen is still a thief - but it could be that the key to the whole universe rests on finding out what else he is . . .
