Title: Of Metal and Wishes 

Author: Sarah Fine
Series: Of Metal and Wishes Book 1 
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books


There are whispers of a ghost in the slaughterhouse where sixteen-year-old Wen assists her father in his medical clinic—a ghost who grants wishes to those who need them most. When one of the Noor, men hired as cheap factory labor, humiliates Wen, she makes an impulsive wish of her own, and the Ghost grants it. Brutally.

Guilt-ridden, Wen befriends the Noor, including their outspoken leader, a young man named Melik. At the same time, she is lured by the mystery of the Ghost and learns he has been watching her… for a very long time.

As deadly accidents fuel tensions within the factory, Wen must confront her growing feelings for Melik, who is enraged at the sadistic factory bosses and the prejudice faced by his people at the hand of Wen’s, and her need to appease the Ghost, who is determined to protect her against any threat—real or imagined. She must decide whom she can trust, because as her heart is torn, the factory is exploding around her… and she might go down with it.
Rating: I will be giving this book a 4 out of 5 stars. I truly enjoyed this book. Even though the author created her own world and characters I could not help but relate this book to Phantom of the Opera. The entire idea of this book reminds me of the Phantom and the situation that he is in. The author does create her own characters and they are different, the world and setting that is in this book is defenitly a creation of the authors and it is truly brilliant. Also, can we take a moment to really appreciate this cover. Usually I can not stand it when poeple are on the covers of books but this cover is beautiful and goes with the book perfectly. On top of the cover I have to say the author is very creative with her writing and her world building. If you are a fan of Phantom of the Opera then I feel you will truly appreciate this book.
