Librarian | 1 comments I read it maybe 2 - 3 years ago, it may have been classified under sci-if as well (not sure).
The girl's father built machines. I don't remember clearly but I think it was his eyes that gave him some sort of magical ability, that's why the King wanted them.

Librarian, was Kelly's suggestion of The Cabinet of Wonders by Marie Rutkoski your book?

"Petra also has a father in faraway Prague who is able to move metal with his mind. He has been commissioned by the prince of Bohemia to build the world’s finest astronomical clock. Petra’s life is forever changed when, one day, her father returns home—blind. The prince has stolen his eyes, enchanted them, and now wears them. But why? Petra doesn’t know, but she knows this: she will go to Prague, sneak into Salamander Castle, and steal her father’s eyes back."
