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.

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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! "

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