This was the 2nd book in the Mysteries of Cove series and was a decent continuation of the series. I loved getting to venture outside Discovery and read about real dragons! This book is packed with adventure and I am curious as to how things will tie up in the next book.
Trenton and Kallista continue to struggle a bit with their friendship throughout; they are both loners by nature and Kallista is increasingly obsessed with finding her father.
Trenton and Kallista ended up venturing into another type of dystopian society where there are two ruling classes. One, The Order of the Beast, worships dragons. The other, Whipjacks, eke out a living on the edge of society and provide the city with mechanical solutions to problems.
Again, I felt like this was a novel more focused on elements of dystopian societies than on steampunk elements. There is a bit more emphasis on building and inventing in this book than in the last one.
In this book there was less adventure and more humans vs humans elements to the story. This disappointed me a bit. I was hoping that Trenton and Kallista were going to have more adventures outside of Cove than they had. Instead they stumble into another messed up human society almost right away.
Overall this was a decent continuation of the series. There is some adventure and we do learn some interesting things about the outside world. However, the story turns more to survival and human pitted against human, and I didn’t enjoy this aspect of the story much. I plan on reading the third book of the series and wrapping things up.

My 4th grade daughter loved this oneReviewed in the United States on 13 April 2017
My 4th grade daughter loved this one. We read the first book of the series together, and planned to do the same with this one. However, she couldn't "wait" to read the next one "with me" and instead devoured it herself quickly. :) Glad to have a book series that draws my 4th grader in!
The plot lines were absolutely fantasticReviewed in the United States on 18 October 2016
They always kept me on the edge of my seat and I felt that his portrayal of Trent was spot on for a born engineer and inventor

A worthy sequel. Curious to see how it ends.Reviewed in the United States on 10 November 2017
Despite slowing down a bit in parts, it evolved well as a sequel to FOI. As ever, it was full of intriguing inventions, strange machines, and characters whose schemes bounced off one another wonderfully. Nice bombshell ending, too.
Must read for the whole family!Reviewed in the United States on 7 December 2016
The suspense continues in the 2nd book! The author keeps you on your toes with the unexpected. Love this series. They are well written & full of adventure while leaving out the unnecessary language of many other authors writing for this age group. My son & I can't wait for the next on!
