young adult, steam punk, alternate history
New on my list of "things I need to own"!
I really enjoyed this one. Like REALLY enjoyed it. Like want to live in it longer enjoyed it.
A totally fun what-if-- what if the British upper class had magic and used that to stop the American Revolution? And what if all technology was powered by magic?
Well, you'd end up with rebel mechanics-- radicals who develop steam engines and other such machines in an attempt to overthrow the dependence on magic.
I enjoyed the characters and the story.
So looking forward to the second book!
