Wren MacAvoy works as a coal miner for a domed city that was constructed in the mid-19th century to protect the royal blood line of England when astronomers spotted a comet on a collision course with Earth. Humanity would be saved by the most groundbreaking technology of the time. But after nearly 200 years of life beneath the dome, society has become complacent and the coal is running out. Plus, there are those who wonder: Is there life outside the dome? Or is the world still consumed by fire?
When one of Wren's friends escapes the confines of the dome, he is burned alive and put on display as a warning to those seeking to disrupt the dome’s way of life. But Alex’s final words are haunting. "The sky is blue." What happens next is a whirlwind of adventure, romance, conspiracy, and the struggle to stay alive in a world where nothing is as it seems. Wren unwittingly becomes a catalyst for a revolution that destroys the dome and the only way to survive might be to embrace what the entire society has feared their entire existence.

Fun story, kept my interest.
This is the first Steampunk book I have listened to. It was an enjoyable little story, and it kept my interest, but it isn't one of my favorites. I would recommend it for a younger crowd, pre-teen and teen.
I would recommend it for the teens because it was a fun adventure, had a little romance, some action, and the lead characters continued to make the right choices despite the fact that they were not always the easiest choices
I enjoyed listening to the narrator's voice and the different character voices
I think teens would enjoy it more than I did, however I did like it enough to listen to the rest of the series.
