Sometimes, even the most unlikely person can change the world
Seventeen-year-old Petra Wade, self-taught clockwork engineer, wants nothing more than to become a certified member of the Guild, an impossible dream for a lowly shop girl. Still, she refuses to give up, tinkering with any machine she can get her hands on, in between working and babysitting her foster siblings.
When Emmerich Goss–handsome, privileged, and newly recruited into the Guild–needs help designing a new clockwork system for a top-secret automaton, it seems Petra has finally found the opportunity she’s been waiting for. But if her involvement on the project is discovered, Emmerich will be marked for treason, and a far more dire fate would await Petra.
Working together in secret, they build the clockwork giant, but as the deadline for its completion nears, Petra discovers a sinister conspiracy from within the Guild council … and their automaton is just the beginning.

Metal & Mystery!


 
Will you look at that! My 2nd steam punk style book in a week....and I am addicted, for sure. 

Jumping straight into this book was a challenge, not only was I coming directly off another steam punk book, but this book also had a determined leading female. Petra wants so much out of life that it hurts. She knows she's got the talent to hang with these upper class inventors, but within the settings of The Brass Giant she can't exactly do that. 
After plenty of trying she finally finds her out, or should I say "in", with Emmerich. 

The dynamic between these 2 was very well thought out. Not only were they complete opposites, but they were opposites that completed each other's faults, or what the other was lacking. Emmerich felt truly genuine to me, he did want Petra to succeed...but there were times when I wondered if he wanted it more. 

Overall the end vibe of this book was amazing! Each plot came together, the bad "people" threw me for a loop.  I'm happy to say that I can see this series going far. Petra & Emmerich will be one of those famous series couples you'll need to watch out for, because their story will either end happily or in heart break.


4/5
