Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
A wonderful surprise came my way about a month ago when I discovered this book while looking through the publishers' catalogs on Edelweiss. It's always fun to discover there is going to be a companion to one of your favorite books and you had no idea it was even in the works. YAY!
Leo never imagined that time travel might really be possible, or that
the objects in H. G. Wells’ science fiction novels might actually exist.
And when a miniature time machine appears in Leo’s bedroom, he has no
idea who the tiny, beautiful girl is riding it. But in the few moments
before it vanishes, returning to wherever—and whenever—it came from, he
recognizes the other tiny rider: himself!
His search for the
time machine, the girl, and his fate leads him to the New-York
Circulating Material Repository, a magical library that lends out
objects instead of books. Hidden away in the Repository basement is the
Wells Bequest, a secret collection of powerful objects straight out of
classic science fiction novels: robots, rockets, submarines, a shrink
ray—and one very famous time machine. And when Leo’s adventure of a
lifetime suddenly turns deadly, he must attempt a journey to 1895 to
warn real-life scientist Nikola Tesla about a dangerous invention. A
race for time is on!
Cue the hyperventilating. The cover! HG Wells! Tesla! And it is connected to The Grimm Legacy which I loved. (my thoughts)
