"Thrill to this rousing tale as it barrels ahead at full speed"

“She’s the most powerful steam engine in the world,” Will’s father tells the reporters. “She’d pull the moon out of orbit. As for her length, it’s more than seven miles . . .”

When Will Everett boards The Boundless he expects the ride of his life - not a fast route to death. But when the key to the train’s secret cargo falls into his possession he finds himself hunted by ruthless killers. As the great train hurtles across the country he will need all his wits to elude his pursuers - and keep himself alive.

Dangers both natural and supernatural abound, as well as a certain amount of social commentary regarding class and ethnicity. Oppel’s imagination and sense of adventure never disappoint, and readers should thrill to this rousing tale as it barrels ahead at full speed.

I was born in Port Alberni, a mill town on Vancouver Island in western Canada but spent the bulk of my childhood in Victoria, B.C. and on the opposite coast, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. At around twelve I decided I wanted to be a writer (this came after deciding I wanted to be a scientist, and then an architect).
