    One thought on “Mothstorm: The Horror from Beyond Uranus Georgium Sidus!”

    1. Philip Reeve and David Wyatt are back for another incredible book I cannot express how much I love these books I am utterly impressed with Reeve s detailed, personable characters that are consistent and yet allowed the room to grow The characters in this series are so delightful and varied I am always anxious for Art s amusing and surprisingly insightful views on events, and Myrtle s delightfully tedious social commentary and lady like instructions.Larklight, the first book in the series, became [...]

    2. Huzzah Another adventure with Art, Myrtle and the Sophronia gang I thought this was every bit as good as Larklight It brings back many of the same characters, and resolves a few plot threads begun in the earlier books, but mostly it s focused on a new adventure and Art must once again be a brave British boy and help save the Queen and the glorious British empire from a mysterious new force I m constantly impressed by the characterization, humor wit , adventure, even some romance and philosophy, [...]

    3. Probably my least favorite of the Larklight books One slightly annoying thing about the books was evident in this This is primarily a series about boys having adventures This doesn t bother me, except that the corollary seems to be that girls don t have adventures It s actually a mixed message Charity does have adventures, but is also a fairly minor character who appears only in the third book compared to Art, who narrates all three, or Jack who is an infamous and young pirate There are some wo [...]

    4. Didn t even know this thing was out, but now I bought it and can t wait to read it Unfortunately it s been a long time since I read Larklight and Starcross, and until I get the both of them and read them in order this is just gonna have to wait Meh It wasn t as good as the previous two It started out great, and I raced through it But I read the last few chapters in a span of three days because I lost some interest I think the story structure just sort of fell apart after awhile The Mothmaker is [...]

    5. I love these books, and this one was no exception The torrid, tragic tale of Jack and Myrtle s love continues, Art meets a girl who plays the harmonium even worse than Myrtle, giant moths attack Uranus Pardon me I mean Georgium Sidus A cure is found for the Venusian Tree Epidemic, and Sssilissa s origins are revealed

    8. I ve been waiting for this book for awhile first waiting for it to be published, and then waiting for it in paperback Finally I got tired of waiting, and nabbed it from the library so I could read it.I ve enjoyed the series a lot, and this book continues to boy s own adventure tale with the touches of Victoriana Imperialism in the far reaches of space This time, however, we are threatened by an external foe the Mothstorm.In this entry, I enjoyed the bits that Myrtle narrated than Art s Myrtle i [...]

    9. I very much enjoyed this one, and it is possibly my favorite of the three Larklight books I ve read As always, I loved the humor and action and the entire Victorian sci fi setting and the illustrations were perfect

    10. I can t help but adore this trilogy it s just so insanely creative and visually stunning Love it Full review and a lot of fangirling over here

    11. I m super torn on this one since I really liked the main plot even if some elements were somewhat predictable and I really liked a lot of the character development Charity was awesome, it was great to see Ssil come into her own, and Mother was the best as always It was also nice to see Father show up a little , being an overall sweet but brave guy The Sophronias were hilarious as always On the other hand The humor in this one felt a little subdued than the last two Without the laugh out loud hu [...]

    12. If you re not personally loathe the Victorian era it based on like me, you probably find not too hard to like this series It s enjoyable, also contains with Philip Reeve s humor and some perspectives that I think are interesting as a sci fi And I guess it s a good execution on the character s basis according to what they live in But yeah, because I hate the era, I couldn t like them either Kaoru Mori still remains the only person on this planet that can make me not bother with Victorian esque el [...]

    13. Real rating 4.25 starsSighI will miss reading this series A wonderful conclusion to a fun, rollercoaster ride of a trilogy Mr Reeve, I may not have liked Fever Crumb as much, but this series makes up for it, 100%.

    14. The third and final installment in the Larklight series provides of the fantastic steampunk Victorian sensibility made familiar to us in Larklight and Starcross Honestly, this book could stand on it s own but reading the first two in the series would be highly recommended Some hilarious footnotes accompany the text, and as usual, David Wyatt s illustrations add much to the feel of the book We are treated to a few of Myrtle s flowery diary pages, but Art is the main narrator.It s Christmastime i [...]

    15. This is the third, and I believe last, book in the Larklight series by Philip Reeve This was an excellent book Full of funny space travel, dangerous battles, and the wonderful characters that I loved from the first two books I listened to this book on audio book, and it was very well done You wouldn t have to read the first two books to enjoy this book, but the first two do add a lot of background story that would make parts of this book meaningful.A message about Danger to the known world is r [...]

    16. Christmas is fast approaching, and the Mumbys anticipate a boisterous holiday full of friends and good food Unfortunately, the holidays are rather spoiled by a beastly little man and his news that something sinister is lurking at the limits of Known Space So in the Spirit of Adventure, Art, Myrtle, and parents set off to discover the secret of the dark cloud at the edge of the universe, and perhaps the fate of a missionary and his daughter who were in the vicinity and have gone missing.Mothstorm [...]

    17. I was scared and eager to begin this book I loved the first two, but feared the ending would leave too much open, or not enough I d spent too much time with these wonderful characters to just say goodbye, especially if it was a shoddy goodbye.I needn t have worried Everything about this book I loved, just as much as the first too Art was still his wonderful, quirky, high daring self though with a bit sense then before I adored Charity and believe she is the girl Art will end up marrying after a [...]

    18. Didn t like this as much as the others Seemed to drag a bit, but than that, I was bothered by the very mixed messages about gender roles, especially the bit with Myrtle teaching the Snilth about being ladylike I think and I m giving him the benefit of the doubt here, b c it did not read like this but I think Reeve was trying to say something the rules placed on women from both sides Traditionalists expect women to be perfect ladies, whatever that means, but in the modern era there are a lot of [...]

    19. Siblings Art and Myrtle Mumby are back in a third adventure after Larklight and Starcross set in a space aged Victorian adventure think Steampunk that further explores the history of their mother It all starts on Christmas Day in 1851, and the whole family is settling down for dinner when they are visited by the crew of the Sophronia The ship s captain, Jack Havock, and his crew are friends that have joined the Mumbys on their earlier adventures.During the course of the holiday s festive reunion [...]

    20. spoiler alert Lured by the strange transmission that warns of great danger and the appearance of a nebulous moving cloud, Art and Myrtle and family travel to the edge of the solar system On the closest planet, Georgium Sidus, otherwise known as Uranus, they discover that the cloud is a swarm of huge intergalatic moths With the entrance of these giant moths, come the threat of alien invasion.This was a suprising fun and lighthearted steampunk novel The copious footnotes added comic commentary to [...]

    21. A fun end novel to this trilogy, keeping the heart of the series to the end Though it seems impossible, there is still new material to be revealed and explored in this installment.Art, his sister, and the rest of their family and friends are called once to save the known solar system Interrupted during Christmas, the Mumbys are informed of a strange, unidentified black cloud that is slowly encroaching on the solar system from beyond Uranus Georgium Sidus At the same time, two Britons have gone [...]

    22. Mothstorm by Philip ReeveAnother third book set in Victorian England, although a very different Victorian England than Lady Emily s, Mothstorm begins with the Mumby family intending to celebrate a quiet Christmas at home in Larklight with their friends Unfortunately, a message of danger arrives and the whole gang promptly goes off to rescue the world for the third time in a year I always enjoy Arthur s very British Boy style, especially when interposed with Myrtle s journal entries Apparently, t [...]

    23. Good fun, as usual, and David Wyatt s drawings always charm, but I wasn t as enchanted as I was with Larklight It s pretty unquestioning about the whole Empire thing I know it mocks that particular idea of Britishness, but it doesn t really go far enough This made it difficult for me to really sink into it.Predictable race and gender fail comparatively mild, but present E.g why should Richard Burton have led the group when they crashed on Georgium Sidus, rather than Ulla I also raised my eyebrow [...]

    24. More reviews and no fluff on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress This is definitely a boy s kind of book Annoying sister, ineffectual mother, adventure and pirates and a strong father figure Sadly, I read this to my 9 year old daughter and we both couldn t enjoy it since the female characters were either nasty or milquetoast That was especially frustrating considering the secrets behind the main character s mother It gets worse in further novels.I rate it four stars for being solidly written and the [...]

    25. The Larklight series is three, very fun stories about the members of the Mumby family and the heroic friends they make There is silliness, adventure, heroics, and a bit of romance Taking place in the middle of the 1800 s, life is very altered from the way we know Outer space is inhabitable by humans and a vast number of very creative alien forms Creatures such as giant space spiders, moobs, pudding worms, aether fish, a Thunderhead, Shapers, and Snilth, to name a few Sailing ships are propelled [...]

    26. Loved this book and it was so much better than Starcross This had the non stop adventure of Larklight and yet there was because of David Wyatt s brilliant illustrations He really helped make the characters come alive This time the Mumby family is interrupted during their Christmas time by a help message from an old school chum of Mr Mumby s It is coming from Uranus, whose proper name is Georgium Sidus When the Mumbys and later the Sophronia s crew goes to investigate, they find a world overrun [...]

    27. I enjoy a good story that doesn t take itself seriously There are so many books out there with so much heavy drama, and doom gloom Well, actually Mothstormlike the first two books in the series by Philip Reeve, Starcrossand Larklight, has plenty of drama too with the planning of a Daring Rescue, various space battles from one end of the solar system to the other, encounters with all the strange aliens and creatures like the mermaids fromUranus , I mean Georgium Sidus, the pudding worms and sun d [...]

    28. HUZZAH Philip Reeve puts the reader steadily back on the course he set in Larklight with the third and final book in the series, Mothstorm With an impending invasion of gigantic space borne moths and their alien riders, all lead by an evil Shaper from another galaxy, Mothstorm rollicks around the solar system with the regular cast of characters and a few new ones thrown in for good measure , facing epic space battles and action that one could reasonably shake a stick at.The writing is top notch [...]

    29. A ripping finale to the Larklight books, just as clever, funny, imaginative, and packed with Victorian steampunk action as its precedessors, Larklight and Starcross This time, Art, Myrtle, their parents, Jack Havock and the pirates of the Sophronia, and a cast of many other returning characters battle their greatest challenge yet A mysterious cloud is approaching from the dark beyond past the edge of the solar system, and even the ancient and wise Mrs Mumby doesn t know what it is Another ancien [...]
