Publisher's Summary

Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds' resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn't a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer-turned-thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder, as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.
Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family's house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons' society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King's assassins.
When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go. He offers her the one thing Ari can't refuse: a wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom.

inconsistent accents

the story itself was great! pretty fast paced, and we skip days in a few minutes... my only gripe is with the main woman narrator. sometimes her British accents used for Cvareh were not British at all. they went from British to American accents every few chapters or so. and for the royal dragons, it was overemphasized British accents for them, which at least was consistent. the mans voice was great. the definition of dragons was downplayed by the fact that they are shaped more like humans. if you like fantasy and can handle that fact about the dragons and not the typical idea of them, then pick this up! its great!
