This is the second book in the Iron Horse Series. The Iron Horse is a giant steel contraption that roams the frozen wilderness, that is until it becomes stuck. The members aboard the Iron Horse are getting a horrible case of cabin fever.
The crew members all vary in personality but they make it work by being a functioning team. At times I would say the sometime interact as family members, getting along great, while bickering and arguing on a loving and caring manner.
If you haven't read the first book in the series, you'll find yourself thrown into the plot of the story, and you'll end up a bit lost. I highly recommend reading this book series in order. This is not a good stand alone book to be read prior to the first book.
The book invokes a lot of questions about the plot, and it seems to lead up to an ending with the answers to all the hints thrown at you along the way, but I found that I ended up finishing this book with many unanswered questions. Maybe this is a clue that their will be more books to the series to come.
The editing was properly done, as I didn't find any errors in spelling or grammar. I would categorize this book as a steampunk novel that was fast paced with much excitement. I found it to be very unique and unlike any other book I've read which made it all that more entertaining. The cover immediately grabbed my attention and made me anxious to start reading this book. I give this book 5/5.
