Book Review: Mechanica

mechanica coverIf you are a fan of Cinder OR Cinderella, you need to read Mechanica.  It’s a scientific take on the old story, but set in a more pastoral setting than Cinder.

Nicolette (or Nick) finds her mother’s workshop on her sixteenth birthday and begins to invent and imagine a life beyond the drudgery of slaving for her stepmother and stepsisters.  There’s a ball in this one, but it’s the opening gala to celebrate a technology exposition where she hopes to get her big break.  Add in a prince, some fairies, and a surprise ending.  This was a fun read.
