Now that was a fun read. I love the creativeness of the read and how it mixes history with imagination. This is most definitely a book I will enjoy reading with my grand-daughter. There are wonderful characters with fun and excitement and yes there is action. There is a host of characters that are discovered in this steampunk read (and yes this is my first of this type I think) each one unique. Kip is a character all on his own and leads their next adventure (I think I would have to put a harness on this kid). Adal and Arija find themselves knee deep in adventure just from saving a coin. That's not the only thing going on with them but as they battle their way thru the Creator's world they also find themselves and each other. I loved this book and had so much fun with everything that was going on. I really enjoyed this take on creation from this new to me author. I love the intricacies and interactions, the characters!! Oh yeah this is a great read and I will most definitely be reading more from this new on the scene author.

Wow, this was my first steampunk book and I was enjoyably surprised. I've never had much interest in the genre but was drawn to it's cover and given personal recommendations, and after giving it a try, I loved it! The author's writing has such incredible depth and detail in both his writing style and character development. He brings the story to life in rich detail so that you become a part of Adal and Arija's adventure. I loved the relationships between his characters and the complicated and even philosophical hardships they faced. The mechanics we're incredibly imaginative too. The story will leave you with questions (intentional, I'm sure), but I'm excited to say I'll be eagerly awaiting the next book!

A different twist on Steampunk! Take two teenagers, Adel and Arija, and throw them into an underground world full of mechanical machines and people (?) and you have an idea of the fun ahead! Adal adores his grandfather, so when he suddenly dies, Adal is heartbroken. The only thing his grandfather left him is a mysterious gold coin. When that coin leads Adal to a cave, he has no idea what is ahead. Of course, Arija, being Adal's best friend and the one who keeps him out of trouble, has to go along for the ride. The descriptions of this underground world are amazing, often coming at you so fast that you have to slow down and enjoy them (as much as you want to hurry up and see what happens next!). There are some great characters along the way, some amazing machines and tons of out-of-this-world creatures. Of course, we also have a crazy-great villain and his minions who decide to take over this new world. Mr. Chopchinski has brought this world to life in a thoroughly entertaining way. You will laugh, you will cheer and you will cry as you go on this great adventure! There are loads of action-filled battles and some truly wonderful characters, especially the little "boy" named Kip. Obviously, there has to be a sequel and I look forward to reading the next phase of this awesome trip! My only complaint about the book is that the pace is often so fast that you really have to make yourself slow down to enjoy it.

I was familiar with steampunk before this book, but this way first steampunk novel and wow! It was absolutely spectacular. The story is told in third person so we get to ‘hear’ a lot from both main characters Adel and Arija. The two have been best friends for a long time and there’s lots of playful banter on the page. You’ll quickly start rooting for these two to make their friendship something more. The world Mr Chopchinski build is vast and well through out, right down to its origins. There is a reason for the steampunk, instead of it merely being an alternate reality. The side characters are well fleshed out, though they all still carry some mystery about them. Get yourself some caffeine because if you pick up this book you’re not gonna wanna put it down. Find out why the world goes ‘round and breath a finally towards the end, I can’t wait for the next book!

Steampunk... Not really an interest of mine. I have read a few books in the genre and wasn't overly impressed. I am a huge YA fan and the blurb sounded interesting so I gave this book a shot. The prologue threw me off a bit. I wasn't sure what I was getting into, but I kept reading and I am so glad I did. This world Mr. Chopchinski created was so unique, so perfectly detailed that I could envision everything the characters were seeing. Then add in the occasional perfectly drawn pictures and it brought the world and characters to life. The characters.. Amazing depth, you really feel their emotions, their struggles, turmoil and loyalty. The conflict was unique, the story overall was fast paced and perfectly told. The ending wrapped up the story but gave us an inkling of what is coming next. I can not wait for more in this series.
