The First Book of Ore: The Foundry’s Edge

We rated this book:


This book is a stunning achievement. The book creates another world within your head, and fills all the details using incredibly described scenes. The characters go through clearly described changes throughout the entire book. The people you meet at the beginning of the book are different than the ones at the end, but they are not entirely different.

The book starts out in the totally different, yet closely related lives of Phoebe and Micah. Phoebe is the daughter of a wealthy researcher at the government/corporation referred to as the Foundry. Phoebe is lonely without her father, and spends her time pranking the servants of her house, especially a young boy named Micah. Micah is incredibly smart at all things mechanical, and helps his mother with servant related things. When Phoebe starts to notice strange people watching her, things start to get interesting.

The original steam punk setting is something fresh to this kind of genre. This book is a fun, fast paced story full of plot twists and unexpected surprises that entertained me every single page. I would recommend this to any friend, and I will eagerly wait for a sequel to come out.
