Adele - the beautiful fairy queen with wings of clockwork - despairs when her husband, the master tinker, dies before he finishes the great machine that will reignite the human-fairy war and drive the humans away. When she meets Dale, a human boy with natural talent - who can finish the machine - she enslaves him and binds his will with her fairy magic. However, Dale's twin sister, Nora, who has only recently discovered that she is a maker and has power of her own, escapes before she can be taken as well. Can Nora understand and accept the magic that makes her different and save both her brother and herself before the fairy kingdom clockwork can be turned on, killing millions of innocent people?
This is the second book I’ve listened to narrated by Hallie Ricardo. I actually purchased it because I loved her narration of the first book I read. Her voice is lovely and she inhabits her characters distinctly and so believably. Even though the plot contained a lot of expose for the two books to follow, I enjoyed it and look forward to hearing them!
I found the story interesting and different then most books I have read. Really liked the story line, though I think the author could have done alot more with it.
