I absolutely loved The Machine: First Book of the Blood and Destiny Series. I’m not afraid to admit it – this is the book that turned me on to Steampunk as a genre. And every other book in the rest of the series was just as amazing. If you’re into a new spin on adventure stories and unlikely heroines, check this out!
