Therefore he invests years in his upbringing and training in all the skills he will require. The story is classed as SteamPunk. It takes a historic setting, time and place and adds in technology they did not have at the time. Kind of an alternate reality storyline.

Their enemies are a mysterious Clockwork Guild and their mad scientist Dr. This story was great fun to read. After the first few chapters about Modo's upbringing, it races through to a great battle. The story is compelling and Modo, with his abilities and his difficulties, is a charming protagonist. We can only hope it will be the first in a series, for upon finishing the book you are left wanting more and wondering what will happen between Modo and Octavia.

Splendid steampunk storycraft Well written, exciting, full blown adventure with superbly drawn characters. Human, tender and frightening in the right measure. Highly recommended. Mar 19, Amanda Meggs rated it it was amazing. Steampunk at its best. Modo is a lovely soul in an ugly body, he is disgusted by his appearance but does learn that beauty is only skin deep. Mr Socrates bought Modo from a freak show when he was just a baby and brings him up isolated in a country mansion, Modo is to be the ultimate secret agent as he's able to change his appearance with effort at will.
Mr Hyde is given employment in his dream job, allowed to create body parts from mechanical means and creating fabulously strong creatures. Mr Hy Steampunk at its best. Mr Hyde works for the "bad guys". Mar 17, Bonnie Dale Keck rated it liked it.
