Publisher's Summary

If Adal and Arija can't survive, we're all screwed. Let the war begin.

Deep in the belly of a cave lies a door to a mechanical world that will change two lives forever.

Webley and the steam-powered creations of the World Machine keep the Earth turning. But when Adal and Arija unknowingly set the gears in motion on a fierce civil war, they could destroy billions of lies. 

Including their own. 

Adal and Arija have already lost so much, they can't lose each other, too. But when they're forced to fight a creature that couldn't possibly exist, they must adapt or they'll lose the only people they have left. 

If you like Cassandra Clare and Joules Verne, you'll love this YA adventure full of witty banter, ingenious machines, and thrilling twists.

Snarky epic fun!

I listened to the audiobook of this and I am SO happy that I did.

I’m going to be brutally honest. I typically don’t like audibles produces by indie authors. The books themselves are great but it seems the available narrators are subpar. So when I got this I decided to give it a try because I knew the book was good.

I was blown away. At first I was a little annoyed by the way the narrator spoke the female voices, especially Arija but after I got used to him, I loved it and it almost added a bit of humor to it.

This book is a total five-star read. Snarky, funny, filled with action, and never boring, Webley and the World Machine introduces us to a cast of characters that are sure to entertain for many books to come.

A World of Possibilities

A very interesting take on steampunk, creationism, and mechanisms. The premise drops our main characters into scenario where they are discovering a secret underground world and the good vs. evil fight taking place between different factions of creations as well as a socio-economic look at a battle between classes.

Parts of the character involvement feel a little rushed, or had no build up to root a solid feeling. The narration makes up for some of that. I kept wondering between accents opposed to where they were, since they were in Germany, but I was catching English and Australian and maybe Irish accents for some characters.

In all, a very entertaining ride for readers to get on board with.

An Exciting New World

This was a fun, exciting read. The world building is amazing and the characters are both hilarious and well rounded. Usually I find that male narrators don't do women's voices well, but this one was actually pretty good and his range of voices is great for a book like this! I can't wait to hear what comes next from both the author and the narrator!
