Hooters, Hatters, and menacing evil.
Even in a mystical world where centuries ago animals were magically changed into humans, the land of Makasar is considered strange. Its two major religions are Hatters and Hooters. During the day, Hatters, wearing hats of course, wander about jabbing pointy sticks into bystanders. The night is ruled by the Hooters, who hoot and set fire to people and things. Hospitality is considered a capital crime. And Newlies, the humanized animals, are treated lower than scum. So when Finn, the Master Lizard Maker, finds himself stranded in Makasar - along with his lover, an attractive Newlies named Letitia, and the grandest, most magical creation of his illustrious career, a talking, thinking, rather cantankerous mechanical lizard named Julia Jessica Slagg - his first thought is a quick exit.
But the Nuccis - strongman son, mad father, and ever madder grandfather - have other plans for Finn and his loyal companions. There's an odd machine in their basement that needs fixing, and who better to do it than a Master Lizard Maker? There's more here than meets the eye, however, and Finn soon realizes that the future he faces could be very dark indeed.

Amazing book, amazingly narrated!
Jeff Hays' voice is sublime. Listening to him is like being sponge cake and having cream being poured all over you, absorbing it's essence into your soul.
There is really nothing comparable I've read to this book. The characters, locations, and scenes are at the level of Alice in Wonderland-ish craziness. The author has a vivid imagination and his gift is bringing it successfully to the page.
The scene that drew me into the book like a hooked fish was when Finn was fighting Sabatino over the treatment of a Newlie servant.
There were several humorous parts in the book that made me LOL. None that made me cry though.
This audio book was gifted to me by narrator at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
