- A Tale of the Circus Tresaulti
- By: Genevieve Valentine
- Narrated by: Scott Aiello
- Length: 8 hrs and 19 mins
Outside any city still standing, the Mechanical Circus Tresaulti sets up its tents. Crowds pack the benches to gawk at the brass-and-copper troupe and their impossible feats: Ayar the Strong Man, the acrobatic Grimaldi Brothers, fearless Elena and her aerialists who perform on living trapezes. War is everywhere, but while the Circus is performing, the world is magic. That magic is no accident: Boss builds her circus from the bones out, molding a mechanical company that will survive the unforgiving landscape.
Beautiful, tragic and grotesque

If you're into Steampunk...
This is a different sort of book. The characters are complex and loveable. The storyline is nonlinear. The setting is unusual and surreal. I enjoyed listening to this audiobook very much. I don't want to give anything away because it's such an unusual book. I've read LOTS of books and LOTS of genres, and if you love a good bedtime story you'll enjoy Mechanique. My only complaint is that it could have been longer - there is so much more I wanted to know!
