Bounless ticket

Will Everett always wished for an adventure . . . but he wasn’t expecting it to start the moment he boarded the Boundless, the largest and most magnificent train ever built.

After a murder is committed, Will finds himself in
 possession of a key that has the potential to unlock the train’s hidden treasures. Together with Maren, a gifted escape artist, and Mr Dorian, a circus ringmaster with amazing abilities, Will must save the Boundless before someone else winds up dead.

With villains fast on his heels and strange creatures lurking outside the windows, the train hurtles across the country as Will flees for his life. His adventure may have begun without his knowing . . . but how it ends is now entirely up to Will.

Kenneth Oppel


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).


Reviews of The Boundless

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.
