A boy discovers a mysterious mechanical world he may never escape in this steampunk fantasy thats a thrill a minute (Kirkus Reviews), set in nineteenth-century England.

Ten-year-old Jack Foster has stepped through a doorway and into quite a different London.

Londinium is a smoky, dark, and dangerous place, home to mischievous metal fairies and fearsome clockwork dragons that breathe scalding steam.

The people wear goggles to protect their eyes, brass grill insets in their nostrils to filter air, or mechanical limbs to replace missing ones.

Over it all rules the Lady, and the Lady has demanded a new sona perfect flesh-and-blood child.

She has chosen Jack.

His only hope of escape lies with a legendary clockwork bird.

The Gearwing grants wishesor it did, before it was brokenbefore it was killed.

But some things dont stay dead forever.

Fans of books like Splendors and Glooms and Doll Bones will find Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times irresistible!
