A land shrouded in deadly mist, where the only chance of survival lies above.
Orphaned by the poison mists, Cass has survived on the streets, until she gets the chance of a lifetime to become a diver exploring the lands below the mist. But when tragedy strikes her newfound haven is upended, they take on a job that could change the course of the world as they know it.
Daringly adventurous with wildly imaginative world building, this steampunk fantasy introduces a team of heroes that you can cheer for all the way through. An adventurous first part of a brand new series, Ms. Busse weaves a fantastical world of science and innovation at the same time stagnant with study on the most pressing problem that their people face forbidden. I admired Theo for his passion to find answers and discover the reason for the mist, he has a curious mind, and doesn't shy away from danger.
A fast paced read, with excellent characters, a well crafted plot, and genuine character growth and interaction. I didn't want to put this book down once I started. A high flying steampunk/sci-fi adventure, I couldn't have asked for more, and I can't wait to find out what happens next! Highly recommend!
