June's grandfather once told her about an avenging angel who didn't bleed or fall like a mortal man. Years later June is restoring automatons, old dolls with moving pieces, that she discovers there is she being chased by mechanical men.
Peter and his sister Elena wake up hundreds of years ago as machines in service to Peter the Great. They can't remember who created them or why they were created in the first place.
This book had such an interesting premise but it was just so dull.
This book was told through two separate POVs, June who is an anthropologist and Peter who was awaken hundreds of years ago. I don't think the two POVs were necessary.
June was such a flat character, she was only really used to propel Peter's character forward. Her main purpose was to have things explained to her and occasionally stitch a damage part.
Peter and his sister had a much more intriguing storyline. I wish this book focused around them and trying to discover who they are. When we followed them we got glimpses of Russia and London, I was hoping we would explore that time and those locations more.
This book was just a disappointment.
I gave it a D.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
