Vis in magia, in vita vi. In magic there is power, and in power, life. For fifteen years, Lark Ainsley waited for the day when her Resource would be harvested and she would finally be an adult. After the harvest she expected a small role in the regular, orderly operation of the City within the Wall. She expected to do her part to maintain the refuge for the last survivors of the Wars. She expected to be a tiny cog in the larger clockwork of the city. Lark did not expect to become the City's power supply. Her only choice is to escape; follow the birds into the wilderness beyond. Into the Iron Wood Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games, Skylark is an electrifying tale of magic, secrecy and survival.

a really interesting dystopian book with magic.

A very readable story. The pace was good, the characters are believable, and the writing was great all the way through. Looking forward to the sequel.

Written with gorgeous prose, this story starts off with a dystopian vibe, but then quickly throws in elements of steampunk and magic. Add in trees made of iron, cannibals and shape-shifting bird with a heart of diamond, and you get a uniquely rich novel.
