The Kingdom Beyond the Waves: Embark on the adventure of a lifetime Kindle Edition
‘Hunt has created an immersive and action-packed fantasy world’ The Age
Praise for ‘The Court of the Air’:
‘An inventive, ambitious work, full of wonders and marvels’ Lisa Tuttle, The Times
‘The characters are convincing and colourful, but the real achievement is the setting, a hellish take on Victorian London … the depth and complexity of Hunt’s vision makes it compulsive reading for all ages’ Guardian
‘Wonderfully assured … Hunt knows what his audience like and gives it to them with a sardonic wit and carefully developed tension’ Time Out
‘Rich and colourful … keeps you engrossed … a confident, audacious novel’ SFX
‘Like a magpie, Stephen Hunt has plucked colourful events from history and politics and used them for inspiration … Hunts tells his full-blooded tale with lip-smacking relish, revealing a vivid, often gruesome imagination … ‘The Court of the Air’ brims with originality and, from the first, its chase-filled plot never lets up’ Starburst
‘Hold on to your hat for a frenetic ride through a fantastic world that is a mind-boggling and hypnotic mixture of the familiar and the bizarre … ‘The Court of the Air’ is a tour de force of the imagination. Fast paced with a cast of interesting and beguiling characters.’ Newcastle Herald (Australia)
‘The best book of 2007 … Think Joan Aiken for grown-ups, with echoes of Susanna Clarke … hugely enjoyable’ Historical Novels Review--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you want to be over-critical I suppose some of the prose doesn't read all that well, but these issues are few and far between.
I loved it.
