Mechanical Animals … say THAT 10 times fast! haha!
Today on Fairies, Fantasy, and Faith, the Blog Tour for Electrical Menagerie by Mollie Reeder, stops here so I can spotlight it! I gotta tell ya, I stayed up waaaay too late to finish this story. WOW! It was engaging, fun, a bit thrilling, and one that I’ll probably read again.
How to explain it? Well, to me, it’s an otherworldly steampunk, as it involves mechanicals, a bit of Victorian, and a totally non-earth-like world, as the worlds are islands, floating in the sky, connected by train tracks. Mollie’s imagination is amazing, and I was pulled in immediately and stayed with the characters all the way through.
Here’s more about The Electrical Menagerie:
The Electrical Menagerie, one-of-a-kind robotic roadshow, is bankrupt.
Sylvester Carthage, illusionist and engineer, has the eccentric imagination the Menagerie needs to succeed creatively — but none of the people skills. Fast-talking Arbrook Huxley, meanwhile, has all the savvy the Menagerie needs to succeed commercially — but none of the scruples.
To save their show, Carthage & Huxley risk everything in a royal talent competition, vying for the chance to perform for the Future Celestial Queen. In this stardust-and-spark-powered empire of floating islands and flying trains, a shot at fame and fortune means weathering the glamorous and cutthroat world of critics, high society, and rival magicians —but with real conspiracy lurking beneath tabloid controversy, there’s more at stake in this contest than the prize.
Behind the glittery haze of flash paper and mirrors, every competitor has something to hide… and it’s the lies Carthage & Huxley tell each other that may cost them everything.
"Dazzles from start to finish. In Carthage & Huxley, Sherlock & Watson fans will find another dynamic duo whose ready wit and sizzling banter (and inevitable personality clashes) never fail to delight. You'll be calling for an encore performance." Gillian Bronte Adams, author of The Songkeeper Chronicles
"The stuff that fandoms are built on." Kyle Robert Shultz, author of Beaumont & Beasley
