In the city of Lovecraft, the Proctors rule and a great Engine turns below the streets, grinding any resistance to their order to dust. The necrovirus is blamed for Lovecraft's epidemic of madness, for the strange and eldritch creatures that roam the streets after dark, and for everything that the city leaders deem Heretical—born of the belief in magic and witchcraft. And for Aoife Grayson, her time is growing shorter by the day.
  Aoife Grayson's family is unique, in the worst way—every one of them, including her mother and her elder brother Conrad, has gone mad on their 16th birthday. And now, a ward of the state, and one of the only female students at the School of Engines, she is trying to pretend that her fate can be different.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 2/15/2014

    " No spoilers here or anything you can't read in the summary. Giving this 5 stars in part for total originality and literary intelligence! My first steam punk read...holla! Bring on the sequel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roshni | 1/19/2014

    " Extremely confusing without any explanation. It is a whirlwind of events that don`t make any sense, but still make you want to keep reading. The author has failed in explaining herself fully, but that in itself makes it more interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Davies | 1/17/2014

    " I thought it was really interesting in the way it was written. It sucked me into this steampunk world and refused to let me go. I loved every twist and turn and am looking forward to the next book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christy Stewart | 12/29/2013

    " DJ Kittredge presents a mashup of Harry Potter, Twilight and Lovecraft with such weak beats not even Jesus could resurrect them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikkie | 11/25/2013

    " I loved the beginning but the ending just dragged. I was glad to be done with it and I don't know if I will continue the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 11/8/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 6/7/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/28/2013

    " THANK YOU, Caitlin Kittredge, for writing a fairy story that did not make me want to scratch my eyes out. (The steampunkery was probably responsible for that...) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine Hayes | 3/18/2013

    " AT first I did not think much of this story,but I pushed through. By the end I was glad I finished. "

    " Totally enjoyable. Especially for those who like Lovecraft and/or play Arkham Horror. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosa | 6/22/2011

    " This book gave me a lot of different genres in one, I got a little paranormal a little fantasy some steam-punk and slight utopia. It was a good read and honestly I cannot wait to read the next in this series. It's a wonder this isn't as popular as some other faerie books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bitten5010 | 6/7/2011

    " First line: "There are seventeen madhouses in the city of Lovecraft." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 5/27/2011

    " Starts out as steampunk and evolves into fairy vs. humans vs. elves vs. ghouls. Definitely I'll read the others! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 5/27/2011
