YEAAAHHH! THEY GO TO SPACE! An elevator-like machine that goes to beyond earth . . . Oppel is brilliant for thinking of alternative modes of transportation.

Not quite as good as the first two, but I found the ending fairly satisfying, and the alternate-universe idea of what could be in space was very interesting.

This is a book must read. I couldn't put this book down. It was exciting and creative, like all of Kenneth Oppel's books.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Kenneth Oppel is an amazing writer. His bat series are very good as well. This book reminded me of Apollo 13, where the ship encountered a major problem that stopped the ship from completing its mission.

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!

This could be the best in the series (so far). I hope that Kenneth Oppel writes a fourth book or field guide to the series. READ!
