    A wonderfully illustrated and intricate steam-punk graphic novel that continues the adventures of Hannah and Ever as they enter a new city in search of ways to garner peace among the three kingdoms. Of course, Oskar, comes along as their "machine". When Hannah and Ever come across two more Oscars they know that the tales of old are true.

    Thanks to NetGalley & Penguin Group for the early copy in exchange for an honest review. The second in a graphic novel series, this continues the steampunk adventures of Hannah & Ever as they discover secrets and mysterious characters throughout their world. I will concede I haven't read the first one, but I thought this was easy to follow along anyhow. It was a really fun yet wholesome steampunk adventure. The art style is so stylistic and pretty, it works very well for the setting. The only issu Thanks to NetGalley & Penguin Group for the early copy in exchange for an honest review.

The only issue I had was that the speech bubbles could be a bit hard to read but I did get an ARC so maybe they'll polish it up later on. Great adventure story!

    Very pleasing art and a substantial sized book, so you get a lot of rigor, it's not something just thrown together, and it's just a substantial good looking booking especially considering the age its recommended for, it's way better accomplished that most comics purportedly made for older readers. The only issue I had was the lettering which was both semi-feint and vanilla (specifically to the word balloon content).

    I think I definitely should have read City of Secrets again before diving into this sequel. I had a hard time remembering all of the little plotlines. I think this one doesn't hold together quite as well as the first one, just because there is so much going on and not enough pages to accomplish it. The storyline with magic, Vash, and the underground of Alexios was just not fleshed out enough. But the art is beautiful and the steampunkesque robots are still really cool!

I hope that there will be more because I think this is a series that will only improve with more volumes to deepen the world and storyline.

    I didn't love the first but a middle grade graphic novel with some action and adventure AND ROBOTS moved a little quicker, had more visual stimulation, and some fun mysterious elements that paced this out better than the other though I'm still not quite sure what the steampunk story *really* is about. But I'll always be down for an adventure with the two heroes of the story.
