Summary: This series follows Robert, Lily and their mechanical fox Malkin as they escape the people who want to use Lily's father's inventions for evil purposes.

My notes: I think this series is best for the younger people in the 8-12 bracket, but it's still a fun and entertaining world. It's set in London/England, but people have worked out how to make mechanical humans/animals to do things for them, which makes it interesting.

Book notes and screen notes: There are four books in this series: Cogheart, Moonlocket, Skycircus and Shadowsea.

3.5 stars

I had very high hopes for this book (I adore steampunk) and while this book was great it did not completely live up to my expectations.

The story starts off a little slowly, but quickly becomes interesting once Robert and Lily meet eachother. The plot twists were a little predictable though and Lily’s scar and mr. Silverfish opinion on mechanicals were very fishy from the beginning.

Robert became my favourite character. He is a nice boy that truly learns how to be brave. Lily was very determined and awesome from the beginning, but I liked how Robert grew into his role as one of the heroes of the story. The scene at mr. Silverfish’s house where he stares in awe at the luxury and his new clothes are among my favourites.

The steampunk world was exactly as great as I hoped it would be, with lovely details about clocks (that turn out to be important later on), mechanical people, airships and mechanical animals. The victorian setting worked really well too.

My only complaint would be the fact that Robert compliments Lily’s dress and almost gets a kiss. I hope with all my heart that they do not fall in love. There are so many romances already and they work so well as friends that I think falling in love would be a step down.

My favourite part was when Robert and his dad discussed the soul of mechanicals. That was beautifully written.
Anyway, I will read the sequel.

3.5 stars. I enjoyed the steampunk aspects of the story. But I found the story was slow to begin with but the ending was fast paced and interesting.

A fun action filled adventure filled with wonderful mech animals and people. Lily is trying to find out what happened to her dad and at the same time find where her dad's greatest invention is before the men with strange silver eyes get there f I rat. An great introduction to steam punk for younger readers.
