Gideon, I’m not certain where you got the idea that The Clockwork Ghost aka York #2 is already released unless you received an ARC. (in that case, lucky you!😺)
I’m looking forward to finding out more about this steampunk alternative reality- portal story with ethnically diverse characters with a Latino geek & pre-B’nai Mitzvah twins with the most adorable & fierce service cat.(less)
New characters: I ADORE that we get Karl's perspective. Ono was so charming and I love him and he needs to be protected at all costs. The blond ladies are great villains -- not as delightfully creepy as Stoop and Pinscher, but I find the implications of their existence more interesting. Can't wait to see more of Dr. Newt.

This stunning second book in the YORK series is filled with mystery, puzzles, and intriguing characters and situations. Told from the point of view of the Biederman twins,(Tess and Theo)and th ...more

I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS THAT NEED ANSWERING
(also Princess Bride reference yas)
(also also theo my sweet child who needs a haircut HOW COULD YOU HAVE FALLEN PREY TO THE EAGLES MISCONCEPTION there is a REASON they did not fly to mordor come ON YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE A GENIUS)
This book doesn't need any time to establish the validity of the cipher. That question has been blown wide open and now it's clear that the twins and their former neighbors are attuned to it in ways that no one previous has been.
