A Web of Air by Philip Reeve

In a ruined world, Fever seeks the lost secret of flight.

Two years ago, Fever Crumb escaped the war-torn city of London in a traveling theater.  Now, she arrives in the extraordinary city of Mayda, where buildings ascend the cliffs on funicular rails, and a mysterious recluse is building a machine that can fly.  Fever is the engineer he needs – but ruthless enemies will kill to possess their secrets.

In this gripping sequel to Fever Crumb, master storyteller Philip Reeve creates a riveting story that is unforgettable and delightful at every fast-paced, breathless turn.

Peer & Press Reviews

Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Evening Post

Fever is an engaging heroine, intelligent yet oddly naïve in the ways of life.  Mr. Reeve is a talented world-maker and first-class storyteller.  What more could a reader ask for?
