Publisher's Summary

Trenton Colman is exceptionally creative, with a knack for all things mechanical. But his talents are viewed with suspicion in Cove, a steam-powered city built inside a mountain. In Cove, creativity is a crime, and invention is a curse word.

Kallista Babbage is a repair technician and daughter of the notorious Leo Babbage, who died in an explosion - an event the leaders of Cove point to as an example of the danger of creativity.

Working together, Trenton and Kallista learn that Leo Babbage was developing a secret project before he perished. Following clues he left behind, they begin to assemble a strange machine that is unlike anything they've ever seen before. They soon discover that what they are building may threaten every truth their city is founded on - and quite possibly their very lives.

So entertaining listing to this with my 13 yr old

Love the characters, following them as they follow their strong desired need, to seek knowledge explore what they are talented at doing, and challenge themselves and the rules they have been taught. Can't wait to see what will happen next!

Very Enjoyable

It was a bit slow at the start but I quickly became hooked. Kirby is a great narrator and the story was engrossing and relatable for me.

Amazing

We first got this as a audiobook from our local library, we got to chapter 28 then the CD stopped working. For the past 2 months I have tried to get it and now o have and it’s an amazing book. There are 2 more books that I need to get now. The knot thing that I don’t like about it is the fact you aren’t aloud to create or improve things, I would die if I couldn’t do that. 1000000/10.
