After losing his road train and being captured by th e Mutes, Steve
returns to the Amtrak federation. They, however, don't trust him, and
banish him to be a lowly garbo.

The First Family overlords, characters in the book, have their own
agenda, which Brickman is part of. He has his own, as well, and the
Amtrak Federation is right to be watching him, as Mr. Snow has plans
for him, too.

I finished this book on the bus into work this morning (I had a pretty distracted weekend, and didn't get much reading done). This is the second book in the Amtrak Wars series, and takes place immediately after Cloud Warrior. The book feels like it is only half a book -- there is plot development such as learning more about Roz, meeting the First Family, and the Iron Masters, but there isn't much action. Basically I look back on the book and wonder what happened in it -- it would have been better to combine this with the next book and have a complete story in one.
