Steampunk represent!!! Happy sigh. The Wingsnatchers are automated cat henchmen who steal fairies for their master. Carmer (a magician’s apprentice and inventor), and Grit (a fairy princess) try and stop them. I like how Grit hardly ever understands the science that Carmer proposes and goes with it anyway.
They team up to stop the Wingsnatchers – horrible automated cats that steal fairies for their nefarious master. This is solidly middle grade and although there is fighting it is age appropriate.I really enjoyed just how funny this book is. It is an adventure for sure, but also a comedy of errors.
Grit has only one wing and there is an element of her knowing how to compensate for that while being frustrated by other characters forcing adaptations on her that she didn’t need.
This book is happily the first in a series and I can’t wait to read the next volume. I read a DRC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I’ll be hard pressed not to break my book buying ban and buying this one for us.
