With The White City: Book 3 of The Clockwork Dark, Hillsborough, NC author John Claude Bemis completes his trilogy for young readers which combines American folklore, Steampunk, and just the right amount of mountain magic:
Once again narrated by Listening Library (in print from Random House Books for Young Readers), the book continues the story which began in The Nine Pound Hammer: The Clockwork Dark, Book 1 and kept building in The Wolf Tree: Book 2 of The Clockwork Dark. Here’s the publisher description:
In The Nine Pound Hammer, John Bemis introduced middle-grade readers to a whole new approach to epic fantasy, founded on characters and themes from American mythology and lore, including the legend of John Henry. Now, in the third and final book, the heroes come together at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago for a final confrontation with a businessman and tycoon who is in fact an ageless evil known as the Gog.
With his Dark Machine, he intends to bend the world to his ruthless vision of progress and efficiency. It’s man versus machine all over again, fighting for the soul of humanity in front of Ferris’s Wheel. For fans of adventure fantasy like Percy Jackson and Peter and the Starcatchers.
