An exciting read with plenty of 'heart'
I bought Cogheart for my 10 y/o but fancied reading it myself. Its a gripping, fast moving steampunk adventure which kept me hooked. Some of the characters are a bit stereotypical but that's balanced out by originality in the form of 'mechanicals' (servants in the style of I, Robot) and my favourite - the mechanimal fox called Malkin. As Lily searches to discover the truth aided by trusty sidekicks Robert and aviator Anna, she's pursued by vicious silver-eyed men who will do anything to stop her. There are some violent scenes so I would recommend this for readers age 9+. Bunzl offers his readers some comfort too though and some words of wisdom regarding courage and identity. Overall a really good read.
