Two years ago, Fever Crumb escaped the war-torn city of London. Now she arrives in the extraordinary city of Mayda, where buildings ascend the cliffs on rails, and a mysterious recluse is building a machine that can fly. Fever is the engineer he needs - but ruthless enemies will kill to possess their secrets.

This book is a beautiful second book in the Fever Crumb series. Beautifully written with mystery, surprising twists and just a dash of romance. A sweet coming of age story in its own way.
Except for the ending.
After many hours of enjoyable listening, I was dismayed by the ending. I was simply unprepared for the book to end so abruptly. In my opinion the ending was a shocking and unwanted twist for these well developed and lovable characters. Hopefully there is a third book.
Loved the book Fever Crumb by Philip Reeve. It was a wonderfully engrossing story that takes you into a world with steam punk styling and thought--fully fleshed and engaging with our intrepid heroine leading us on --to the end. It is a fun time and I cannot wait to listen to the next book in this series.
