Mist, Metal and Ash by Gwendolyn Clare

Worlds collide in this thrilling sequel to the epic, imaginative, acclaimed fantasy Ink, Iron, and Glass.

In an alternate 19th-century Italy, Elsa has an incredible gift: she can craft new worlds with precise lines of the script written in books. But political extremists have stolen the most dangerous book ever scribed―one that can rewrite the Earth itself. 

Now Elsa must track down the friend who betrayed her and recover the book before its destructive power is unleashed. Can she handle the secrets she’ll uncover along the way―including the ones hiding in her own heart?

Jan’s Review

This is the sequel to the amazing debut Ink, Iron, and Glass. This series reminds me a lot of the Map Makers series. I find the concept of being able to create worlds out of words is an amazing concept with so much potential. This series does not let you down with its excitement, danger, and plot twists. I love Elsa and what she stands for in using and preserving her gift to create worlds.

The ending of the first book was so heart wrenching I just had to get my hands on the second book. What we think we know just is not always the case and we discover that in book two. I love the fact that their no time missing between the books and it picks up right where we left off in book one.

This book has two storylines flowing altogether, we have Elsa trying to save Leo. We have Casa the house which has gone insane. Casa the house going all protective on everyone was great as it totally something you can see happening.

With the Leo end of the story, we get a lot more in-depth on his character and the whole backstory of his family. How cruel and insane his dad is and what depths his brother will go to be loyal to him. Then their a very interesting twist towards the end that really changes up the whole dynamics. There a lot of nice scenes with steampunk themes and their plenty of world book fun to be had. This is a great series and I highly recommend you check it out. This book is due out February 19, 2019.
