The Tower Must Fall by S E Bennett review
This is a steampunk fairytale which I love. Fairytales are over, dragons and ogres have been destroyed. The city is now running on steam powered clock work bringing in the age of technology taking over the age of magic. But some of the fairytale monsters survived and are in hiding. They are called Cryptids. Marek is a cryptid and involved in an underground rebellion to free his people. I like Marek, he is honorable and sweet. I also liked Enyo. She is a very complicated, layered character. I liked that the characters aren't perfect people, that they have flaws. Marek and Enyo have adventures protecting Cryptids and discovering who they really are. A fantastic story 5 stars.
