Publisher's Summary

Award-winning author Michael Swanwick returns to the gritty, post-industrial faerie world of his New York Times Notable Book The Iron Dragon’s Daughter with the standalone adventure fantasy The Iron Dragon’s Mother.

Caitlin of House Sans Merci is the young half-human pilot of a sentient mechanical dragon. Returning from her first soul-stealing raid, she discovers an unwanted hitchhiker.

When Caitlin is framed for the murder of her brother, to save herself she must disappear into Industrialized Faerie, looking for the one person who can clear her.

Unfortunately, the stakes are higher than she knows. Her deeds will change her world forever.

A Swanwick classic, but...

The voice actress really let's this one down; I have heard more emotional resonance from text-to-speech software.

Awful narration

Swanwick writes beautiful prose, but the narrator reads it like the instructions for putting together a bookshelf. I'll be reading this one in print
