    A book which instantly and effortlessly drops the reader in to a highly original yet entirely believable fantasy world or, rather, a city. Through a series of short stories, the book presents an account of how a city is saved from imminent destruction by a turn of events resulting in the city being lifted up by a silent giant and carried across a wasted and barren land. Each story stands alone but weaves itself in to a novel which perfectly reflects a society formed around the physical and psychological effects of living in a walking city. Philip Downs' artwork - both the front illustration and the woodcarving-esque designs inside - captures the mood perfectly. What results from the immaculate stylisation of this beautiful, tragic and epic world is something both faintly nostalgic and familiar juxtaposed neatly with a feeling that is far darker, more menacing and old beyond recognition.
