The small Wild West farming community of Whitcomb was afraid of Seraphton, the shining metropolis that lies along the horizon.

Reverend Archibald preached that the city was forbidden, an abomination to the world, and evil demons lurk inside despite the celestial name. Emmaline had a feeling there was more to Seraphton than the Reverend let on. Emmaline Fortenbury had always felt out of place in Whitcomb and wondered if Seraphton was really like he said. He preached like he held a grudge. What were the secrets of Seraphton and how did it connect with Reverend Archibald? Then a stranger comes to town and the meeting changes her life. Aleksander Galloway was feared by the townspeople, but she found him fascinating. She wanted more out of life for herself. She wanted the chance to explore the world, and he seemed to be the man to help her. He had silver metal wings and a mechanical eye. He was handsome in a way that wasn’t like the townspeople of Whitcomb. He was sophisticated, educated, and very interesting. How can their love grow when their two towns collide? Can their love bring everyone together for peace?...

my mechanical angel Reviews
I'm proud the author is a friend of mine and she gave me a personalized, signed copy for an honest review. (it didn't really take me almost a month to finish, I just had this floating in between other reads)For a debut novel (I think this was her debut) I was pleasantly surprised by the compelling story and the unique first person narration. It read almost like a journal. The only thing is that sometimes this style of narrating is very limited in that we only see things through the protagonist. We see people colored by her lenses. And sometimes, probably for the sake of providing more information, the author gave us information I'm not entirely sure she would know.The story was very fun though, thick with religious overtones but not overly saturated and fantastical enough to appeal to an audience of steampunk fantasy.Lovers of angel lore will enjoy this too!
Harmony has a great way with words and I think this book will have great appeal to younger adults. Emma, the main character is an easy to like young girl that you will find yourself connecting with right from the start. We see in her things that we all struggle with at times, the ability to fit in with those around us, the questioning of the things that we are told by the adults around us and the desire to explore what else is out there. Emma’s journey is an inspiration and I found myself standing on the sidelines applauding as she finds not only herself, but her independence and of course love. When you add in the Angelic twist you get a very powerful story that leaves you with a warm and happy feeling.I am looking forward to reading more stories from Harmony!
While it's the familiar storyline of the main character feeling out of place, Harmony Lawson delivers surprises that kept me turning the pages. Emma, the main character, is what I like to think as a non-conformist to the max, which just makes her all the more enjoyable. What made me give the story five stars instead of four, is how easy the read was. Not once did I find myself having to force myself to continue to read. I will continue to look forward to more of Harmony Lawson's work.
My Mechanical Angel tells the story of Emmaline Cecilia Fortenbury. Despite its length at just under two hundred pages, I found the second attempt by the author Harmony Lawson of writing a book just as interesting as her first, Apocalypse of Angels: Seeing Angels. A lot of good use of description and interesting plot gets a five star rating.
My mechanical angel was another brilliant story from Harmony Lawson! I loved this book so much more than her first book Apocalypse of angels: seeing angels. It has a mix of steampunk and modern day elements which makes for a unique and enjoyable read. I'd love a sequel but will be content if there isn't one. And this isn't just another book about angels! I recommend it!
I'm really torn on this one. I enjoyed the story quite a bit, but the plot was a little choppy. The author would appear to foreshadow some sort of betrayal and then nothing would happen. It probably could have been fleshed out a bit more.
