A World Book Day 'Recommended Read' for 2011

George (12) - Fans of Philip Reeve’s Mortal Engine series will love Storm Thief! However, the world in the story, ‘Okros’, is a darker and more dangerous one where probability storms mean anything can happen. The characters too are more mature with secrets and hidden emotions reflecting the desperate world they live in. I really liked the book with its mix of emotion, betrayal, love, loyalty and exhilarating action and I am hoping there will be a sequel!


Storm Thief by Chris Wooding

A thrilling novel set in Orokos, a city of chaos, lashed by probability storms that re-order the world wherever they strike. It covers every inch of the rocky island that it dominates. It has stood for so long that history has forgotten it, and nobody questions what exists beyond. And then, three of its denizens discover the key to the secret.

About the Author

Chris Wooding

Chris Wooding was born February 28th,1977. His formative years were spent in a grim, squalid ex-mining town in the Midlands, where the crushing monotony of his surroundings fostered a need for escapism that he found in books. Possessed of a frighteningly sharp focus as a child, he had already determined that he wanted to be an author by the time he hit adolescence; and he had barely reached adulthood by the time he had achieved his ambition. He had a literary agent at eighteen; Crashing was accepted for publication when he was nineteen years old and released soon after.

Since it was scarcely possible to stop him writing anyway, the prospect of making a living by doing what he loved - instead of being forced to work at something he didn’t -sparked a fire under him and turned him extremely prolific. He spent the next few years writing feverishly around his English Literature studies at the University of Sheffield, producing a multitude of works across a range of styles, from teenage stories to horror to offbeat fantasy and grim political drama. Every one was published. By the time he left University, he was earning just enough to live on, and he took up writing full-time at twenty-one.
