Rust is a high octane adventure set in the prairie lands of an unknown time Life on the Taylor family farm was difficult enough before Jet Jones crashes into the. This is a wonderfully odd book There are some steampunkish elements and I suppose a case could be made for including it in that genre There are flashbacks to a conflict that appears from the uniforms to be World War I but there are robots fighting wonderful gasoline powered robots There are also boys with jetpacks but it's not some fantasy conflict rather a properly violent and bloody war In the present day we have Roman a young man whose father is away somewhere Roman writes letters to him and it's hinted that he's involved in a war which may or may not be the same conflict in the flashbacks Roman is struggling on the family farm tinkering with robots while trying to keep up with the harvest and other chores A mystery boy named Jet shows up being chased by a robot that Roman helps him disable This is only volume one so there are many uestions than answers This is all paced a bit slowly for my liking but I'm keen to see where it's all heading This is a deeper complex work than it may seem at first glance

Rust Vol 1Rld war While the rest of his family may not trust the mysterious boy with the jetpack Roman believes the secrets of Jet’s past may be the key to their survival. Volume 1 of Rust is a simple but remarkably well done story With its diesel punk setting sparse storytelling and antiue color scheme the different elements of this story come together uite well to make the whole The scope is simple focusing on Jet Jones his efforts to escape his traumatic history with war and the family that takes him in The themes of family identity and trauma are resonant and there is enough suspense and menace in the background of the story to keep things interestingWhile the simplicity of the story is part of its effectiveness it also is the main weakness There are times in the story where too little seems to happen leaving a plot that is ultimately rather thin for the size of the volumeHowever this is my only real complaint and the simplicity of the plot doesn't really stop me from enjoying the story On most counts Rust is a solid story that could appeal to readers of all ages
