The conclusion to this exciting all-ages steampunk manga Clockwork Sky!

Madeleine Rosca's sharp-edged style perfectly matches her sharp-tongued lead character's personality. Sally Peppers is the highly-curious, ambitious niece of steambot magnate Erasmus Croach, who has supplied Britain's factories with an apparently endless supply of near-perfect robot employees, displacing flesh-and-blood humans. Unemployed people have begun to demonstrate in the streets of London and more than one near-riot has been put down by Croach's latest and greatest invention, the steambot police-boy, Sky.

Sky is troubled by dreams where he, like Pinocchio, has become a "real boy." Then he meets Sally, who has run away from home, and begins to learn of the poverty and hardships faced by these workers. Together, Sally and Sky venture into the tunnels beneath London in search of a missing child.

Sally has always been a bit of a tinkerer and quickly figures out the terrifying truth about her uncle's magnificent steambot factory. But it might be too late--Erasmus Croach has new steambots ready to deploy--and they are bigger and stronger than the heroic Sky. Can Sally's wits and Sky's pure heart save the day?

(retrieved from Amazon Sun, 30 Aug 2015 16:21:32 -0400)

Trapped in the clutches of the wicked Erasmaus Croach, Sally finds herself in mortal danger... right alongside London's missing children! It turns out that her brilliant but evil Uncle Croach has discovered a way to make children seen but not heard - permanently! And he might just have found a market for his cruel and twisted inventions! As Sky edges closed to discovering his own origins within Ember's factory, will he be able to stop Croach from transforming his new friend Sally into something unspeakable?… (more)
