This was a very interesting book. I don’t read much historical fiction but I really enjoyed going into that world for the first time. Lot’s of things to think about and imagery, both via the illustrations and the text is so powerful that you get drawn (pun completely intended) into this other world. Major cliff hanger ending though…love that about series books. I can see many young readers getting into this book and series, especially engineering minded scholars. You know the type…the non-fictiony concrete thinkers who love to design machines and sketch the robots in their spare time…they would LOVE this one! Great book, highly recommend it!
