Storm Thief wasn’t an easy one to write because the enclosed world of Orokos was quite a task to build in my head. Since I finished Storm Thief in February of ’05, my book output slowed a little as I’ve been working more in other fields: screenwriting and comic-book writing, mainly. Everything had to make sense: the history, the economy, even how they managed to feed themselves. As usual, while writing it I got to a point where I wished I’d never started, and I wanted to run my hard drive over an electromagnet and never think of Orokos or Rail or Moa again because they had given me so much grief. I like to try new things and different formats of writing.

It had no doors, no windows, and its surface, though glass-like, was made of something utterly indestructible by any technology that the people of Orokos knew.

First off, I just like to say that I'm a fan of Chris Wooding. I love, love, love his writing style and his Ketty Jay series entertained me so much that I hope Wooding will decided to continue with another series someday. Even my oldest daughter liked his graphic novel, Pandemonium. Having said that, Storm Thief just didn't do it for me. The whole premise is a wonderful and creative idea, but I just couldn't get that engross in it. One thing that bothered me was the constant POV changes that always happened without warning. It was like the probability storms themselves. I didn't understand why Moa wore makeup when they lived in such poverty and the fact that she was so annoyingly weak made me hope she actually died. It was hard to cozy up to Rail, too, though I dug the idea of him having to wear a respirator. Wooding seemed to want to get the story over with and the ending felt like after last call at a bar when everyone is getting shoved out the door. Honestly, if more depth was put into it, maybe even turned into a series--which I know a talented writer like Wooding could pull off--Storm Thief has the potential to be a great story. Regardless, I will still read his work. I'm eyeballing the Braided Path so there you have it.

I have read a couple of his other works (Poison and The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray), and this one is most definitely my favorite! As always, great imagery and interesting plot, storyline, and characters. I have recommended this book to several friends and will continue to do so!

one of my favorite YA fiction books, the atmosphere and the fast paced actin along with the issues the characters face is worth witnessing.

Read this years ago and finally had the chance to get back into it. It's still as beautiful as the first time, and my friend who borrowed it also loves it. The book was in perfect condition and wonderful to own.

This book is fantastic. If you are into sci fi at all then you need to read this book. Bonus if you are into Steampunk/Cyberpunk. I like to think of this book as existing in the Bioshock Universe, just no plasmids. I like to think its one of the cities Elizabeth talks about. But that's just my own connection. This book would make a fantastic movie. Highly recommend reading it.

This is an excellent gritty coming-of-age story. One of my absolute favorite books. I highly recommend this and Chris Wooding's other novels.

Love the world building. The characters were clearly drawn, sympathetic, and interesting. I am typically not a fan of this type of sci-fi, fantasy, but I really enjoyed this book.
The world creation alone would draw me to this book, but I stayed for the characters. Wooding’s writing style is attractive and addicting
