Nimira is a “trouser girl” dancing to drunks and people who mock her culture to make ends meet, until she meets Hollin Parry who hires her to sing with an automaton that plays the piano. However, she finds out that he is not a machine but a man called Erris who is stuck inside. This is a sweet and charming book which has lots of action, adventure, politics and star-crossed romance. I would recommend this to people who like Amber Argyle or Shannon Hale books. P.S. I love the cover it is sooo pretty!
