The Wingsnatchers Publisher's Summary

A stunning debut about a magician's apprentice and a one-winged princess who must vanquish the mechanical monsters that stalk the streets and threaten the faerie kingdom.

Aspiring inventor and magician's apprentice Felix Carmer III would rather be tinkering with his latest experiments than sawing girls in half onstage, but with Antoine the Amazifier's show a tomato's throw away from going under, Carmer is determined to win the cash prize in the biggest magic competition in Skemantis. When fate throws Carmer across the path of fiery, flightless faerie princess Grit (do not call her Grettifrida), they strike a deal. If Carmer will help Grit investigate a string of faerie disappearances, she'll use her very real magic to give his mechanical illusions a much-needed boost against the competition. But Carmer and Grit soon discover they're not the only duo trying to pair magic with machine - and the combination can be deadly.

In this story, perfect for fans of the Lockwood & Co and Wildwood series, Sarah Jean Horwitz takes listeners on a thrilling journey through a magical wooded fairyland and steampunk streets where terrifying automata cats lurk in the shadows and a mad scientist's newest mechanical invention might be more menace than miracle.

    Shortly after saving the faeries of Skemantis, magician's apprentice Felix Carmer III and his faerie companion, Grit, head out to see the world. They soon come across a mysteriously magical flying circus. As they get to know the outlandish world of Rinka Tinka's Roving Wonder Show, it becomes clear there's something not quite normal about this circus or its inventor - and that recent airship disasters plaguing nearby Driftside City may have a sinister explanation.
