Waiting on Wednesday [2]: Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming books that we are eagerly anticipating.

Edited (2/1/14): So sorry! I can't believe I forgot the cover pic!!!

Here's my pick:

Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times by Emma Trevayne

Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times

Expected Publication: 13th May 2014


Ten-year-old Jack Foster has stepped through a doorway and into quite a different London.

Londinium is a smoky, dark, and dangerous place, home to mischievous metal fairies and fearsome clockwork dragons that breathe scalding steam. The people wear goggles to protect their eyes, brass grill insets in their nostrils to filter air, or mechanical limbs to replace missing ones.

Over it all rules the Lady, and the Lady has demanded a new son—a perfect flesh-and-blood child. She has chosen Jack.

Jack’s wonder at the magic and steam-powered marvels in Londinium lasts until he learns he is the pawn in a very dangerous game. The consequences are deadly, and his only hope of escape, of returning home, lies with a legendary clockwork bird.

The Gearwing grants wishes. Or it did, before it was broken. Before it was killed.

But some things don’t stay dead forever.


The synopsis sounds so interesting... It's been a while since I read MGs (the last one being Doll Bones by Holly Black which was... OH, I CAN'T REMEMBER) and from the gorgeous cover to the synopsis, I'm all grabby hands for this.
