    Originally published at Reading RealityI finally picked The Mechanical Theater out of my towering TBR pile because I liked the first full-length novel in the Chroniker City series, The Brass Giant, enough that when I noticed that the second full-length novel in the series, The Guild Conspiracy, is coming out next month, and I wanted to catch up.And I needed at least one short book this week. So here we are.Although The Mechanical Theater definitely takes place after The Brass Giant, the events i [...]

    A Giveaway BookI was delighted to win Brooke Johnson's novella, Le Theatre Mecanique through a first reads giveaway. This is a quick, well-written read. Johnson creates a beautiful Victorian steampunk world in which Solomon Wade and his small adventure in the theatre take center stage. A great new world in YA science fiction, I would recommend Johnson's novella to anyone interested in this genre.

    Guys - you know how much I adore Clockwork Giant?I like this more. While it is steampunk, instead of being this epic adventure, it is a realistic, refreshing story. The characters and their motivations are simplistic, desires that we experience in real life. It made the characters more believable and more tangible.Solomon, our MC and the brother of Petra from Clockwork Giant, was done insanely well. His core desire is to join the theatre, but also be able to save his youngest sister from the ill [...]

    I needed an enjoyable, easy read to make up for another book-in-progress being a big disappointment. I opened up The Mechanical Theater and found exactly what I needed. The cast features good people trying to do their best under stressful circumstances. Solomon is a good man, a good brother, and an aspiring actor. He doesn't hesitate to take on multiple jobs if it means the money will help keep his sister alive and at the same time, he accepts a menial job at La Theatre Mecanique so he can work [...]

    All I've got to say is this was a quick and enjoyable read. Once again, you were pulling for a lot of the characters, like Solomon, Dahlia, and especially Emily, who was suffering from pneumonia. And there was only one antagonist, that person being Damien. Overall, this was a really enjoyable read!

    Though this is a stand-alone tale, it would help to have read "The Clockwork Giant" because of character crossover, and it's a great book!I really liked this story. Solomon's life has a real edge of desperation to it. All he can offer a sick child is the sweat from his brow, so he goes at work all out. His soul longs for the stage, yet he is wiling to sacrifice even the small slice of that life to help this member of his extended family. He's late for work and likely to lose his job, so he barga [...]

    By setting Le Theatre Mecanique is technically steampunk, but the story itself really isn't. That's because this novella is set in the same world (and I believe features one or more characters from) the authors novel The Clockwork Giant.So don't go in expecting all the over the top elements that steampunk often denotes. What we're looking at here is a small and sweet tale about a young man struggling to look after his family and to follow a dream he has.I'll call the setting Victorianish just to [...]

    Le Theatre Mecanique is a tight, compact tale of a man working hard to fulfill his dream, with a leavening of Shakespeare-love thrown in for good measure. A tie-in to the Chroniker City series, La Theater Mecanique features one of the characters from that book, Solomon Wade, a man with many obstacles in his path. He wants to join the theater and act, but he has a family to support, a brutal job to hold down, and an ill sister in need of medication. Brooke Johnson does an excellent job of stackin [...]

    A charming glimpse of Petra's family and her brother Wade's devotion to caring for their sister Emily by working 24 hour shifts at the boilers and taking on every other odd job that he can. The wonderfully intricate steampunk details bring the city to life and provide a welcome addition to this continuing story!
