It was only a few weeks ago that the Biedermann twins, Tess and Theo, along with their friend Jaime Cruz, followed the secrets of the Morningstarrs’ cipher further anyone had in its century-and-a-half history—and destroyed their beloved home in the process. But the Old York Cipher still isn’t solved. The demolition of 354 W. 73rd Street only revealed the next clue in the greatest mystery of the modern world, and if Tess, Theo, and Jaime want to discover what lies at the end of the puzzle laid into the buildings of New York by its brilliant, enigmatic architects, they will need to press on.
But doing so could prove even more dangerous than they know. It is clear that the Morningstarr twins marshaled all the strange technology they had spent their lives creating in the construction of the Cipher, and that technology has its own plans for those who pursue it. It is also clear that Tess, Theo, and Jaime are not the only ones on the trail of the treasure. As enemies both known and unknown close in on them from all sides and the very foundations of the city seem to crumble around them, they will have to ask themselves how far they will go to change the unchangeable—and whether the price of knowing the secrets of the Morningstarrs is one they are willing to pay.

I pretty much adored the first book in this series. And I have been waiting for news about the second one :D And eee! I simply cannot wait for The Clockwork Ghost. The summary sounds exciting. And that cover is so very gorgeous. Sigh. Is it May yet? The cover is not up on Amazon/Goodreads yet. Hmph. Despite being revealed a whole month ago. How rude. It is gorgeous. Laura shared about the cover here, and her story about the cat when she was younger just about killed me. Laura is amazing. <3 Can't wait to read.
