Moonchild by Kate L. Mary and narrated by Heidi Drennan is a marvelous steampunk adventure! If you are into steampunk, pirates, post-apocalyptic worlds, or strong female leads, I can’t recommend this book enough. I hesitate to say this is for young adults only as it contains adult/darker themes.

What to expect: After Scarlett’s parents died, she was put to work in the mines. She managed to escape and has been on the run since with her friends. Unfortunately, being on the run comes with it’s own downfalls. One night, Rory is taken by the enforcers while they are out scavenging, from there Scarlett’s adventure to rescue her begins. Enter the pirates (some good, some bad) and Asher, a potential love interest that has Scarlett second guessing her ways. This book is a go-go-go story. Lots of action, mysteries (some to be unraveled in future installments), a love story sprouting, and great character development (even the minor characters).

The narrator, Heidi Drennan, did an excellent job with this. Voices are distinct and easy to listen to.

Overall, I recommend- I enjoyed it a lot and look forward to Scarlett’s story unfolding. Kate has a gift for world building, smooth writing, and portraying strong female characters. I would love to see this story turned into a TV series.

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: death of parents (multiple characters), unwanted child (one character who is an adult now), prostitution of females (sex slaves or like situations) by powerful males, death, weapons such as throwing stars, attempted rape when drinking, child pit fighting to death, drugging of a male.
