Title: Wings of Sorrow and Bone
Author: Beth Cato
Release Date: November 10, 2015
Publisher: Harper Voyager
From the author of The Clockwork Dagger comes an exciting novella set in the same world…
After being rescued by Octavia Leander from the slums of Caskentia, Rivka Stout is adjusting to her new life in Tamarania. But it’s hard for a blossoming machinist like herself to fit in with proper society, and she’d much rather be tinkering with her tools than at a hoity-toity party any day.
When Rivka stumbles into a laboratory run by the powerful Balthazar Cody, she also discovers a sinister plot involving chimera gremlins and the violent Arena game Warriors. The innocent creatures will end up hurt, or worse, if Rivka doesn’t find a way to stop Mr. Cody. And to do that means she will have to rely on some unexpected new friends.

(I received this book ARC free from Edelweiss.com by HarperCollins in exchange for my honest review)
There is something to be said about a good book, it brings so much joy when you've other wise had a horrible day, or found out that your shore posting has been canned. (I'm in the military, navy, and I was suppose to be ashore a year...... goodbye normal.. :(..) This book was beautiful written. I could picture everything like I was right there with Rivka, trying to save the gremlins. I want a gremlins now. My heart was breaking for them.
I loved Rivka, such a strong girl. She knew the wrongness that was being done to the gremlins and she did not hesitate to put a plan in motion to fix it. She is the type of protagonist that I like, a will of steel, and stubborn like an OX.
This book was a fast read, it traps you in this intriguing world of magic and machine. I didn't read the books before, the first two in the Clockwork Dagger Duology series, but you don't need to, there is enough world building and background for you to understand and created the world that Rivka lives in. In saying that I am now going to go back and read the other books.
This book is marvelous and should be read either with the Clockwork Dagger series or as a stand along. There are so many emotions, so many feels and lessons to be explored that you will not put this book down once you've started. Rivka is the heroine that should be wrote about more, strong, smart, and sharp. She ended this book in a blaze of glory while giving Mr. Cody on last slap in the face.
