A pretty creepy book with corpses, sky pirates and electrocuting monsters. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Kate de Vries is awesome, totally adventurous, and not afraid of anything.
Love, Love, Love!!!!!

not as good as the first book but still great
i beleive the third book destroys the meaning of airborn and the trilogy

Better than the second in the setting and action. However, I miss the sky pirates (they're always brilliant) and was irked at the romance. I'm a hardcore non-romantic action fan. But, frozen airships, goggles, and flying machines? Pretty impressive overall.

It's a bit like the first, but still a good book.

Really escapes from the book prior and begins a new gripping story

Instead of reading Airborn, read this one first!

This book kept me reading it without being able to put it down, but I did prefer the first over this one, for, it was less creepy (in certain parts I found it weird).
Overall it was a good book though. I wonder what Starclimber will be like...

This was the 1st book that I read in the series, not knowing that there were 2 before this! It was amazing! Full of surprises and wild adventures (even clean romance:) It is full of pages that will keep you reading...and the drama in it will make you hate putting it down! (And in this book they got a nice pic on the front:) Oppel better write a 4th book to this series; he can't just leave it with their engagement! :) I rated it 4 1/2 stars, it is not as good as the first 2. I do like the space thing, but it just is not as good. I hope the 4th one (I am really hoping there is a 4th, if not- I'm going to be mad) is great!
