Iron Pendulum


A month ago, Avery thought the world ended outside Dome Four. Thought she was one of the few of her kind. Thought the war that brought the human race to the brink of extinction was over.

But a month can change everything.

After fighting to escape a tyranny she didn't even know existed, Avery has had to come to grips with all the secrets she's uncovered. But more secrets continue to come to light, revealing how little of her world she truly knew. When evidence starts to show that Dome Four might be under siege, Avery knows what she must do.

Returning to the dome she longed to escape is a challenge for Avery, but now she knows there’s corruption lurking in the shadows. A massive steam shortage leaves half the dome without power, and people are falling ill. Dying.

And they’re blaming Avery.

A month can change everything. One more month could kill everyone. The clock is ticking.

About Megan Curd:
Megan Curd is a graduate of Northwestern College in St. Paul, Minnesota. While having always enjoyed reading any books she could get her hands on, Megan didn’t begin writing until a friend encouraged her to do so while in college. 

When not writing, Megan enjoys spending time with her family and friends. Photography, traveling and snowboarding are hobbies she loves, and she doesn’t turn down the opportunity to play xBox with her brother and friends when it presents itself.

Megan currently resides in Ohio with her husband and son, where she is trying to convert them into Buckeye fans.


Lexie was the leader of the Alliance. Vivacious and determined, I still couldn’t believe she was only twenty-three—my age in eight years.
Almost seven.
As if Sari had read my mind, she perked up. “What do you want for your birthday, Avery? It’s next week.”
“Yeah, the big one-six.” Agreed Alice. “You’re old. Practically ancient in post-apocalyptic terms.”
I laughed. “Then what does that make Riggs?”
“A giant, dusty, dinosaur fart,” Jaxon said, and everyone burst out laughing.
“Come on, let’s get home before more Zeroes find us,” Sari said. “I don’t want to deal with any more disgusting things today. Jaxon covered in crap more than exceeds my quota.”
She took a step forward and a snap rang through the tunnel. Her scream pierced the air, threatening to burst my eardrums. Water splashed against us as Sari flipped upside down and was pulled to the ceiling by a rope, her mask falling into the shallows.
A rusted metal trap had lain in wait, slicing into her ankle with every fight and twist of her body.

Iron Pendulum is just as good as the first book in this series. Megan Curd did an amazing job once again writing this book. Starting off right where Steel Lily left off with all the same great characters with lots of twists, turns, action and suspense this book does not disappoint. Iron Pendulum is a definite must read for anyone that has already started this series or if they are looking to start reading a great steampunk dystopian series.
