About this ebook

Vis in magia, in vita vi. In magic there is power, and in power, life.

For fifteen years, Lark Ainsley waited for the day when her Resource would be harvested and she would finally be an adult. After the harvest she expected a small role in the regular, orderly operation of the City within the Wall. She expected to do her part to maintain the refuge for the last survivors of the Wars. She expected to be a tiny cog in the larger clockwork of the city.

Lark did not expect to become the City's power supply.

For fifteen years, Lark Ainsley believed in a lie. Now she must escape the only world she's ever known…or face a fate more unimaginable than death.

It grips you at first fast paced and exciting all the way up until your sample is up then it turns mediocre... 2.5/5 would not recommend
Third-party review
A magical mashup of steampunk/fantasy/Hunger Games dystopia/zombie apocalypse and it works and is an amazing story.
Third-party review
Full Review to be posted soon: Skylark started off a bit slow for me but once the story got going, I really enjoyed the atmosphere and tone of a world filled with magic that feeds clockwork machines, Shadow people, and magic gone wild.
