“Let’s pretend for just one moment that could actually happen. You close your eyes and I’ll close mine and let’s dream the same dream across the Atlantic, lighting up the darkness between us. Can you see it, Stu? Can you see us up there, shining in all the black?”

Here’s what Dovey would wear to hunt demons in Servants of the Storm, although she’d do her shopping at the thrift store.
Plus a supportive bra, thick socks, and a knife.
What would you wear?

Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine 
Genre- Young Adult
Publisher- Margaret K. McElderry Books
Release Date- August 5th, 2014
Rating- ✮✮✮✮☆  
I received a copy of this book in exchanged for a honest review. In no way did the author or publishing company influence my review. For info on my book reviews and rating scale, click here
Quick note: I’m going to start doing reviews a little differently: I’m going to split the things I loved and the things I wish I could change/didn’t like into two groups within the reviewOf Metal and Wishes is an enchanting story, throughout the whole novel. It’s loosely based off The Phantom of the Opera, a musical (and novel) I love so it was so cool seeing the parallels of Wen and The Ghost.Wen is a sixteen year old girl living with her father, a doctor at a slaughterhouse. After her mother’s death, Wen finds herself working beside her father, sewing up skin instead of silk. The slaughterhouse is said to host the ghost of a boy who had died a few years before, who grants wishes and happens to favored Wen. When the slaughterhouse needs new workers, the rumored-barbarians of the land, the Noors, are sent. One of them is quick to humiliate Wen, and she makes a hasty wish to the Ghost to avenge her, one that goes farther than Wen could have imagined.I really enjoyed this book. It wasn’t as creepy as I was expecting, but it was made up for with Sarah Fine’s beautiful and haunting writing. The parallels between this novel and The Phantom of the Opera were done well, similar enough that a fan could recognize it but not so much that it feels like a copycat. The story is really unique and goes pretty fast, but not so much you can’t grasp it. The world that Fine created seemed like (possibly false) historical fiction, Gothic, steam-punk and a little bit of fantasy in one, holding on to a few important elements of the real world wonderfully. And the ghost was done perfectly, a mix of creepy and interesting, a friend and an enemy. And I though the relationships were very realist, from Wen’s strained one with her father to her one with her love interest (no spoilers, but it becomes clear very soon into the book!) And with the growing need for diversity in YA lately, Wen is a perfect heroine for the cause, being Asian. I did have a few problems. I never felt like we really got to know Wen. We know she’s pretty, smart, hardworking and so on, but these felt a little too shallow compared to her actions, (if that makes any sense?) We see more about her though what she does, not what she thinks or says. She did remind me of Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles, just not as “strong” trait-wise. I also was never sure if the book itself was historical fiction or fantasy, though I think I’ve settled on the latter.I definably recommend Of Metal and Wishes to fans of The Lunar Chronicles, The Phantom of the Opera (both the play and the book) and beautiful writing.
