This story, more than others in the series, harkens back to the first one when Nita joins the crew to seek a cure for her mother. The cure they need this time must be created, not recovered, and one of the crew is at risk. I can’t say more without spoilers, but the powerful emotions driving the story are similar. This doesn’t prevent moments of laugh-out-loud humor, crafty dialogue, and amazing exploits. Instead, it emphasizes how, time after time, the crew refuses to despair, jostling out of dark moments and staying focused on the path to success. They don’t weigh the odds. If any chance exists, that’s their goal and the crew will do whatever necessary to make it happen.
There were many neat elements in the book. The aye-ayes scamper off to do mysterious things that are beautiful once I figured them out. The plot seeding allowed me to anticipate both horrible events and good ones. Even the casual description of clothing is far more involved in the story than just an aesthetic. For example, Nita’s utilitarian corset provides back support to help with the weight of her many tools while the female fug folk’s long skirts prove impossible to run in.
The same is true for how the crew recognizes that different doesn’t mean less, whether talking about Wink’s one eye or Coop’s unusual way of thinking. This acceptance from the start of the series provides support for their reactions to what’s happening in this book. It requires growth but is consistent with whom they’ve already proved to be.
I didn’t make that many notes because I was too busy being caught up in the story. I enjoyed spending time in their company, and this tale struck particularly close for me. It’s well-handled and true to the hopeful feel of the series. But make no mistake, Contaminant Six is hopeful in the face of adversity, not the absence of same. The crew struggles with military, mechanical, and medical crises, sometimes all at once, so this is no easy trip for all it’s a thrilling adventure.
Before this series I'd never even thought of reading a steampunk book. I'm so glad I did this series quickly became on of my favorite ever. This book was all about Lil. All the Fug she breathed in over the series caused her to go through the change. In an effort to stop her from losing all her memories the windbreaker crew set off to find an unlikely cure. I was happy to see how much Nita and Lil's relationship had grown in this book. If this was the end of the series then the ending was great with the crew splitting up while still working together. I can't recommend this series enough.
