At first I was wondering why all the complaints about Hester, because we were just hearing about her from her daughters point of view. The ending though, it was so sad. (and Hester did seem to be unreasonably strange) ( )

Well. That was really excellent.

The Hungry City Chronicles has been quite good so far. I had quibbles, especially in the character development department, but overall the first two installments were quite excellent. But I kind of wished I'd found the series when I was in late middle or high school, when I was more in line with the targeted age bracket. The first two books were exactly the kind of books I would have adored as a teenager.

Infernal Devices is the first book in the series that has really escaped the YA bounds, I think. There's still plenty of the YA footprint all over it, don't get me wrong. There's a teenage protagonist and a matching teenage love interest. But Infernal Devices is also a much more mature book. In large part this is because there’s a fifteen year time jump between the last book and this one, and as a result, our heroes Tom and Hester are older adults instead of teenagers. Because YA tends to feature teenage protagonists (people like to read about characters who are the same age as them), YA tends to very heavily be about people making momentous decisions: who to fall in love with, whether to lead a revolution to destroy [insert-generic-dystopia-here], and so on. Very rarely does YA dwell on the long-term consequences of those momentous decisions. But thanks to the time jump, a great deal of Infernal Devices is about Tom and Hester separately dwelling on the past choices that led them to where they've ended up, and whether they regret those choices in the end. That's a fascinating choice from a writing perspective, and it's fascinating to read.

The reason why I still read YA (beyond enjoying fluffy trash because it's fun to hate on) is because I'm looking for books like Infernal Devices that are more than "just" YA. I'm looking for books that might be aimed at a particular age demographic but are still timeless stories that don't have an age limit on enjoyment and appreciation.

And you know what? I still think I would have loved Infernal Devices if I'd read it at age fifteen. But I think I'd love it exactly as much as I love it now, reading it for the first time at age twenty-four. ( )

Infernal Devices and A Darkling Plain seem like two parts of one story, less stand along than either Mortal Engines or Predator's Gold. I struggled with the Hester/Wren relationship, too often it seemed combative primarily as a plot device with Hester's personality being flattened to a single dimension before being puffed back to life as soon as she didn't need to be the unfeeling mother anymore.

Still, every book brings a new aspect of the world to life and this is no different. I may roll my eyes at some characterizations, but keep coming back for the world-building. ( )

Anchorage, the once-glorious ice city, has become a static and its inhabitants have settled into their peaceful lives on the shores of Vineland in the Dead Continent of America. Tom and Hester have raised a daughter, Wren, who at fifteen is desperate to escape the boredom and dull routine and dreams of having adventures of her own. But when she is kidnapped and eventually sold as a slave, Wren realises that having adventures is not all it’s cracked up to be.

Set sixteen years after the events in Predator’s Gold, the fantasy epic continues, this time with Tom and Hester’s daughter Wren the focus of the narrative. Slower in pace and not as tightly plotted as the previous two volumes, it feels at times like a filler book to prepare for the finale in A Darkling Plain, though the overarching narrative still manages to draw in the reader with its inventiveness, colourful and morally ambivalent characterisations and atmospheric set pieces, and explores the notion that in war there are no winners, only losers.

About 17 years later...
Tom and Hester have a daughter, but the safe and peaceful life she leads in Anchorage-in-Vineland is dull. She wishes for the kind of adventures her parents once had. When a party of Lost Boys arrives in search of the Tin Book, a mysterious artifact that Anchorage has kept since the time of the Sixty Minute War, she gets her chance...and soon regrets it.

Like the previous books in the series, the plot, characters, and pacing are all good. I still have issues with the prose and editing, but overall, quite an enjoyable light read. ( )
