No superheroes nor anything supernatural (thus far, at least.) Expect merely ordinary people - you and me, as it were - caught up in extraordinary circumstances. Plots are character-driven, and the characters themselves are complex and often contradictory.
I aim to appeal to the reader who has an ample sense of humor and an appreciation for irony. You can expect adventure and romance, but graphic violence and sex are at a minimum - think PG or PG-13 at most - and suitable for mature youths as well as adults.

the book was amazing!! I really loved it , and that's from someone who doesn't like adventure books!
What i liked is how the h&h were normal people, I liked reading the pov of both h&h.
I liked the written accents.
I LOVED the escalating love story and last but not least I LOVED the humor ,it is so funny and i laughed out loud at numerous occasions through it all... And i wanted more, call me greedy, i just like the writer's sense of humor.
, the metric system is a good refreshing change. I liked the plot, not too slow, but what i really liked about it was how unpredictable it is!!!
I will definitely miss Keira and Wally.
Dai alanye is one of a few writers i feel the urge to reread their books more than once.

Lovejoy's World is a sinister place, the approach to which is described by Dai Alanye in convincing detail. But from the beginning the tone is ominous. Here criminals are deported but who is the criminal and who the law-abiding? A world with few comforts and little to eat, one nevertheless feels the inhabitants will do anything for money.It's a joyless place, a frontier to the utterly unknown. At times it seems Wally and Kiera are out only contact with normality and clarity, the only ones we can trust.
Strange animals and insects abound - unicorns without horns; ponies which are in fact centaurs - human-eating half men with spears. This is no airy-fairy fantasy, however, but down-to-earth scariness. Lovejoy's World offers futuristic space travel back in time to a terrifying age which the reader hopes will never be. Thrilling and thought-provoking.
