Gears of the Sun
Among them are four factions: Thermapunks, Aeropunks, Terrapunks, and Hydropunks. Together, they protect the source flame and deliver warmth to the universe beyond. Though they work in precise harmony to keep the golden gears of Quintessence churning, the relationships between them are strained by class warfare and a social hierarchy that often leaves the Thermapunks with ultimate control. The only thing keeping their delicate alliances intact is the ever-present threat of moon monsters who wish to steal the source flame.
Emmeline Dawes is destined for greatness as a Thermapunk, but when an outside force cripples her sense of self and challenges everything she was trained to believe, she begins to question the world around her. Is her greatest foe truly from a faraway moon? Or does the enemy live within herself?
Gears of the Sun is a sci-fi drama with an elemental steampunk twist that examines the fragile nature of separating a blessing from a curse.
FROM THE EATING OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF MARBLES FOR SUBSTANCE TO THE SETTING OF THE STORYLINE IN THE SUN. I ENJOYED READING THIS BOOK, THE FLYING, THE DIVING, THE PIRATES, THE GEARS, EMMELINE'S FAMILY, CLOSE FRIENDS AND OF COURSE LOUIE. I FOUND MYSELF EAGERLY FLIPPING PAGES to discover the new setting, new characters. I feel like I just read a star wars trilogy I can hardly wait for the book.
