A stunning story, that takes you into the Victorian age with mechanical humans and animals, who (believe it or not) have their own feelings. It is about amazing friendship between humans and mechanicals (and mechanimals), heartbreaking choices and sacrifices that have to be made.
Lily Hartman, a mettlesome girl, is waiting impatiently for the school year in boarding school to end so she could fly back home with her father, who is an inventor of mechanicals and mechanimals. Terrible news tear her world apart when she is told, that her father´s airship Dragonfly has gone missing with himself on board, presumably dead. She is collected from school by her guardian, but something strange is about to happen on the way back home…
And this is only the beginning. Soon she is being chased by silver-eyed men, who are after his father’s greatest invention. What is it? Who can she trust and how will things end up? Read the book to find out!
