#BookReview of Ink, Iron, and Glass by @gwendoclare

Ink, Iron, and Glass (Ink, Iron, and Glass, #1)


About the Book: Can she write a world gone wrong?


A certain pen, a certain book, and a certain person can craft entirely new worlds through a branch of science called scriptology. Elsa comes from one such world that was written into creation, where her mother―a noted scriptologist―constantly alters and expands their reality.


But when her home is attacked and her mother kidnapped, Elsa is forced to cross into the real world and use her own scriptology gifts to find her. In an alternative Victorian Italy, Elsa finds a secret society of young scientists with a gift for mechanics, alchemy, or scriptology―and meets Leo, a gorgeous mechanist with a smart mouth and tragic past. She recruits the help of these fellow geniuses just as an assassin arrives on their doorstep.


In this thrilling debut, worlds collide as Elsa unveils a deep political conspiracy seeking to unlock the most dangerous weapon ever created―and only she can stop it.

About the Author: Gwendolyn Clare's debut novel -- INK, IRON, AND GLASS -- is the first in a steampunk duology about a young mad scientist with the ability to write new worlds into existence, out now from Imprint. Her short stories have appeared in Clarkesworld, Asimov's, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies, among others, and her poetry has been nominated for the Rhysling Award. She holds a BA in Ecology, a BS in Geophysics, a PhD in Mycology, and swears she's done collecting acronyms. She lives in North Carolina with too many cats, too many ducks, and never enough books.


Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I loved the steampunk feel of it!

Recommend this book? Yes!!

Notes and Opinions: I enjoyed this book start to finish. Elsa got on my nerves sometimes but it makes sense since she's a teenager. She I could understand that. Plus she starts to learn from her mistakes. Now Leo... want him. He is just wonderful. The concept of this book is not one I've ever heard of so it was quite refreshing to read! Now that plot twist had me shook. I need book 2 like yesterday. Seriously. I'm so excited to read it.
