The Story: One determined girl. One resourceful boy. One miracle machine that could destroy everything.
After an unexplained flash shatters her world, seventeen-year-old Eyelet Elsworth sets out to find the Illuminator, her father’s prized invention. With it, she hopes to cure herself of her debilitating seizures before Professor Smrt—her father’s arch nemesis—discovers her secret and locks her away in an asylum.
Pursued by Smrt, Eyelet locates the Illuminator only to see it whisked away. She follows the thief into the world of the unknown, compelled not only by her quest but by the allure of the stranger—Urlick Babbit—who harbors secrets of his own.
Together, they endure deadly Vapours and criminal-infested woods in pursuit of the same prize, only to discover the miracle machine they hoped would solve their problems may in fact be their biggest problem of all.
My Review: This book was awesome!! It had strong similarities to the Clockwork series, more on the instance that there's a machine that's suppose to be the best thing to happen. In Lumiere, we follow Eyelet who was given a promise from her father that the machine he was working on would cure her of her seizures. We're taken into a world that get's rid of those who are not in perfect health, nor in perfect form. I loved every bit of this book!! Can't wait to read the second one in the series!
