The White City: Book 3 of The Clockwork Dark by John Claude Bemis

In The Nine Pound Hammer, John Bemis introduced middle-grade readers to a whole new approach to epic fantasy, founded on characters and themes from American mythology and lore, including the legend of John Henry. Now in the third and final book, the heroes come together at the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago for a final confrontation with a businessman and tycoon who is in fact an ageless evil known as the Gog. With his Dark Machine, he intends to bend the world to his ruthless vision of progress and efficiency. It's man versus machine all over again, fighting for the soul of humanity in front of Ferris's Wheel. For fans of adventure fantasy like Percy Jackson and Peter and the Starcatchers.

"Save the best for last" is definitely a true statement because out of all of the books in the series this is the best by far because this is the book where all loose ends are tied. This final book in the trilogy contained so much emotion and action. The constant emotion was great but also sad to a point where I was on the verge of tears. The suspense in this book is really heart pounding, keeping me constantly surprised and wondering what's going to happen next. The relationships in this book are done developing and turn out to be really cute and sad at the same time. Most, if not all, of the questions and mysteries are cleared up and answered. Overall, this is a great book about sacrifice and love.
