#BLOGTOUR | The Mechanical Maestro – Emily Owen @SilverWoodBooks @RandomTTours #amreading #bookblogger #bookreview #TheMechanicalMaestro

London, 1857.

Brothers George and Douglas Abernathy are clockmakers who are barely scraping a living in their family’s shop. They are also brilliant inventors with a sideline building custom￾built androids and other technology ahead of its time. Their sixteen-year-old sister, Molly, is also a genius, specialising in transformative plant biology, but earns her keep by sewing.

The Abernathys’ fortunes improve dramatically when the brothers invent a clockwork automaton composer named Maestro, whose musical artistry takes London by storm. But
there are those who believe Maestro is a fake, and others who think him a monstrosity.

As Maestro tries to make sense of the world of London’s high-society which he is thrown into, he incites the interest of sinister figures who would go to any lengths to discover what
makes him tick.


I love steampunk. It is always impressive to me, yet I don’t read a ton of it. I am so glad I agreed to read The Mechanical Maestro by Emily Owen. It is such a cool concept and I was absolutely immersed in the world building.

Let’s talk about this world building. It is absolutely breathtaking how immersed you get in this story. I am just blown away by the attention to detail.

This is written really uniquely as well. I love the little stories inside the main story. It was so intriguing and well-written. Not a single part of me was confused.

I am obsessed with this book. All I can say is that I highly recommend it. Give it a read!
