Grey and her family are different and it is being noticed. They do not require the chemists tonic to help them digest food as all others do. They can survive without their rations and make sure to help those who are unable to get theirs. A raid at their house causes Grey to have to escape and where she escapes to is not what she expected.
Her blood seems to be the key into an entirely different world within her grandfather's Curio cabinet. The "people" within are made of porcelain or clockwork and she appears to be the only human there.
How did she get here and how is she to get home? Who is the Mad Tock?
This is only the second steampunk book I have read. I have to say, I kind of like the quirkiness of the characters and the world that was created here. It's an interesting mix of a dystopian world and the steampunk world within the curio cabinet. Very enjoyable read.
