Publisher's Summary

When 13-year-old Lily's inventor father vanishes on a routine Zeppelin flight, Lily's determined to find out the truth behind his disappearance. But she's not the only one searching for her father; there are silver-eyed men in the shadows who will stop at nothing to find him.
With Robert, the local clockmaker's son, Lily travels to London, where they soon discover that she holds the key to the mystery...a mystery closer to Lily's heart than she could have ever imagined.

Off-putting narration.

Couldn't finish listening to this because of the one note narration where every line was read in the same sad, sad voice. The narrator didn't seem to be capable of any other emotion and also had a habit of stressing the wrong words in sentences. It was so off-putting I had to instead buy this in kindle format. There are plenty of amazing actors out there. Audible really needs to do better than this.

More for 12 year olds

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

It was too predictable and maybe it's my mistake, but I felt it was better suited to children.

What could Peter Bunzl have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Hated having children as the main characters. I felt no connection to them. I did however, enjoy some of the basic ideas such as the mechanimals.

Would you be willing to try another one of Rachael Beresford’s performances?

Yes. I felt this would have worked better with a male voice especially as there are so many male characters.. I also think I would have enjoyed the book more had I read it for myself.

What character would you cut from Cogheart?

Both Robert and the girl. Keep the fox and the hybrids.

Any additional comments?

Just because it wasn't for me, I think there is an audience for this book. I would certainly read as light entertainmentit to the class I teach.
