Publisher's Summary

After finding a compass and clues left by Kallista's father, Leo Babbage, Trenton and Kallista head west aboard their homemade mechanical dragon to search for the missing inventor. The two teenagers hope to find answers about their mountain city of Cove, but instead, they find only a blackened forest, ruined buildings, and a small underground city.

Almost immediately, Trenton and Kallista get caught up in a civil war between a clan of scavengers called Whipjacks and the Order of the Beast - people who believe that dragons are immortal and divine.

Stranded in a new city, the two friends meet Plucky, a Whipjack girl with mechanical legs, and Ander, a young member of the Order who claims humans are able to communicate with dragons. Can they trust anyone, or have they unknowingly stepped into a trap?

ANOTHER entertaining installment

Sheesh I am really tearing through this book series, to the point that I'm preparing myself to be sad for when it ends. I love the characters, the plot, the colorful world, the interesting inventions, and the reader.

Narrator sucks!

The book is a good listen. But the narrator no matter how skilled he is at different voices is poor because the volume SUCKS! I had to turn the volume to full when he artistically whispered then back to 3/4 when he yelled. It hurt my ears ( I work in a place where the sound is at 80dB) And there where parts of the book that got missed due to the constant up and down, I couldn’t stop to change the volume.... The only way I got threw this was imagining hitting him in the nuts each time he did it. Which turned out to be 20 time + an hour.

Not the best👍🏼👎🏼

It was a good idea but not the best writing.

1: My one big problem was the YELLING! The narrator would yell a lot of the exciting parts and it got really annoying.

2: My other problem was that it was to long. I felt like it went on and on, and the same stuff kept happening.

At the begging it was good and interesting but be prepared to feel bored by chapter 25. The narrator was good but it just didn’t cut the line.

Good sequel Great narration

Love Kirby. These books so far are very interesting. Mixing post apocalypse with dragons and 20th century prewar culture is new for me. Ive been hooked though. Cant wait for the next installment

A wonderful blend of steam punk & fantasy

The narrator has an Orson Wells quality to their voice when not in character. while in character every one is unique and distinguished from one another. the story pacing it played out perfectly building into a thrilling climax

A Great Follow up

Really enjoying this series. I appreciate the fact that the sequel is a continuation of the story that makes progress and doesn't just repeat the events of the first book. Looking forward to #3!
