This wildly creative, critically acclaimed retelling of Frankenstein is perfect for fans of Cinder by Marissa Meyer and the Yellow Brick War series by Danielle Page. Now available in paperback.
In an alternative fantasy world where some men are made from clockwork parts and carriages are steam powered, Alasdair Finch, a young mechanic, does the unthinkable after his brother dies: he uses clockwork pieces to bring Oliver back from the dead.
But the resurrection does not go as planned, and Oliver returns more monster than man. Even worse, the novel Frankenstein is published and the townsfolk are determined to find the real-life doctor and his monster. With few places to turn for help, the dangers may ultimately bring the brothers together-or ruin them forever.
A remarkable debut from Mackenzi Lee, a writer to watch both in print and on Twitter.
