The mechanical bits and the birds, and the lost-and-found to it all made this book something I really liked--which is saying something because I have never liked a post-apocalyptic book before. But I really liked this one. The atmosphere is phenomenal, I think, it's got this great aura happening throughout the story that makes it really interesting (it's kind of hard to explain what I mean, but~). And the cover art. I spent like, an hour, just staring at that cover art.

I liked this book better than the first book in the series, Fever Crumb; probably because I didn't feel as lost. In this book, Fever is 2 years older, and has joined a traveling theater group somewhere in Europa. In one small city, she meets a young scientist with dreams of flight, and becomes interested in the possibilities, but more than one person wants to end those dreams and rid the world of anyone with those dreams. Good story, recommended for middle school readers.
