Publisher's summary

Named a New York Times notable book of 1994, The Iron Dragon's Daughter tells the heartrending story of a changeling child who is kidnapped to a realm of malls and machines and enslaved in a vast, infernal factory. Ultimately, she escapes and attempts to educate herself about this alien world, while being tormented by visions of the life she was denied.

Critic reviews

"Combining cyberpunk's grit with dystopic fantasy, this iconoclastic hybrid is a standout piece of storytelling." (Library Journal)
"At once a gleefully bizarre parody and a dazzlingly imaginative tour de force." (Kirkus Reviews)

I've read this book at least 10 times

This is one of those books that you go back to, like an old friend. Listening to it read by someone else was a little different, but the over all experience was great! Meet J
