My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won’t find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could’ve been better or what worked or didn’t work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it’s here I probably think it won’t injure your brain if you read it.
Tess, Theo and Jaime live in – and love – their city of York. With the mysterious technology of the genius Morningstarr twins powering it since 1798, the city boasts towering glass buildings, flying cars, twisting rail lines that run both above and below ground. Somewhere it also holds the key to the Old York Cipher, an enigmatic riddle that the Morningstarr twins left to the citizens of York before they disappeared in the 1850s, promising that whoever could solve it would find unimaginable treasure.
Tess & Theo are descended from the Morningstarrs, but that’s never helped them get any further in the cipher than anyone else. They live in one of the last five original Morningstarr buildings, but a real estate developer is buying them up, and the twins – along with Jaime – decide if there was ever a time to solve the cipher, it’s now.
