A month ago, Avery thought the world ended outside Dome Four. Thought she was one of the few of her kind. Thought the war that brought the human race to the brink of extinction was over.

But a month can change everything.

After fighting to escape a tyranny she didn't even know existed, Avery has had to come to grips with all the secrets she's uncovered. But more secrets continue to come to light, revealing how little of her world she truly knew. When evidence starts to show that Dome Four might be under siege, Avery knows what she must do.

Returning to the dome she longed to escape is a challenge for Avery, but now she knows there’s corruption lurking in the shadows. A massive steam shortage leaves half the dome without power, and people are falling ill. Dying.

And they’re blaming Avery.

A month can change everything. One more month could kill everyone. The clock is ticking.

5 Stars

You couldn’t help yourself, could you Megan? Why did you have to do this to me? Of course I still love you and I f-ing loved this book again but you know I have to hate you on some level for what you made me go through in this book.

Iron Pendulum is the sequel to the fantastic Steel Lily and I’m happy to say it’s just as brilliant! I’m not going to give a short summary because I don’t want to give away any spoilers! I knew it was going to be good, but sequels often suffer from the Second-Book-Syndrome. Some manage to be pretty good or even great but mostly they’re just set-ups for the upcoming epic finale (if it’s a trilogy). Most of the time, they’re not better than the first book. They’re not supposed to be like this. They’re not supposed to make you sob and yell and ugly cry. My head is still spinning from all these twists and all the heartbreak.

My mind is still a bit woozy so I’ll babble a bit about what I liked and that’s it. I loved that the story wasn’t boring! There were so many twists that I didn’t see coming! Megan destroyed me in this book. I ugly cried. Multiple times. And I don’t do that. Not ever! This woman is awesome and Megan I’m so happy you decided to send a review request to me last year for Steel Lily. I love you, but like I said, I kind of have to hate you a bit.

I love Avery, Jaxon, Dana, Sari, Lexie, Alice,… All those great guys. Jaxon is yummy, Avery is awesome, Dana is hilarious and fantastic! I grew to love Vince over the course of the book. He grows on ya. Not gonna lie, people die in this book. And it will break your heart. Megan, you evil genius.

I cannot recommend this series enough. It’s fantasticly written and remain surprisingly original in the dystopian genre with its steampunk hints and the elemental powers stuff I love so much. So pick up Steel Lily and then Iron Pendulum so we can talk about how great (but mean and evil) Megan really is.

My favorite quotes:

~ “I’m never going to let you go,” he whispered. “You’re not alone. You’ll never be alone as long as I have breath in my lungs. And I don’t plan on giving that up anytime soon.” – Jaxon

~ “Do you want to figure this shit out, or hug someone and sing Kumbayah? Because we don’t have time to waste, and I don’t like singing.” – Vince

~ “Pike, why does everyone think you’re the key to life as we know it?”
I sighed. “Beats me. I trip putting my pants on in the morning.” – Vince & Avery

~ “Whether or not you say the words, the feeling is there, baby girl. That reprieve from the pain you feel when he’s close? That’s your heart finding its home in another soul. It happens once, maybe twice if you’re lucky in your life. That’s love. Don’t let it go, whatever you call it.” – Dana
