    "Same typical book ad but with even less of a plot description than above. No review from a critic. No mention where to get it or what formats it is available."

    "I'm trying to get my daughter interested in more than just teeny romance books, so I searched for some kids Science Fiction tales. This one was perfect since the movie has just come out and we could go see it in theaters once she was finished. She loved the book more than the movie. Score!"

    "These are the kinds of books that just aren't written anymore. It reminded me of classic adventure/fantasy stories like lord of the rings or harry potter. It was very well done and I had no problem suspending disbelief and falling into the story."

    "I'm a big fan of Patterson for his adult books and my kids love his books more suited to them. This appears to be another winner. Patterson is a master at crafting a tale and keeping readers up late into the night. "

    "I have to admit to being incredibly biased in this review – I LOVE steam punk and am not averse to occasionally dressing up a bit steam-punky and, of course, I do possess a very fine pair of steam punk goggles! For anyone not familiar with Steam punk, it is basically a branch of science fiction: alternative history/speculative fiction often with a Victorian/Edwardian aesthetic. Basically think Victorian Style with modern technology – brass computers powered by steam – that kind of thing. I LOVE IT."

    "I absolutely love this book series and it's awesome that it's available in this paperback set that contains all of the books in one attractive case. The Harry Potter novels are one of the best well written and thought provoking, emotional series for kids, but I've always found them more Fantasy than Science Fiction. There are almost no science fiction elements and most if not all of the aspects of the book are fantastic, so I wouldn't wholeheartedly recommend this to a science fiction reader looking for science fiction. Even being such captivating tales it's magical fantasy."

    "Ray Bradbury is one of the best SF writers I've read. This is in the same vein as Dan Simmons etc. I remembered reading these as a kid and thought I would share them with my kids. I picked them up and read them again before giving them to the kids. We've both enjoyed them and anyone who enjoys the SF genre or wants to introduce kids to it should check these out."

    "This is absolutely the opposite for kids science fiction tales, I mean just look at the cover of the book, would you give this book a gift to your 8 year old niece or nephew? This may be a good read for older and more mature audiences, but I imagine different books for kids to be honest and for good reason, again, just stare at that cover."
