Girl Who Reads Presents: #BigBookGiveaway

Open to US addresses only

The Night Watchman Express is a train that runs every night, at midnight.  It's also the title of the first book in the Crown Phoenix series.


An underground factory, a terrifying laboratory, and the eerie whistle of the Night Watchman Express…
Miriam has only her guardians' son for company, and she and Simon dislike each other from the start. But they must find a way to trust each other, or they will end up on the sinister Night Watchman Express.
Full of danger, suspense, betrayal, and a hint of romance, this steampunk adventure is for readers of all ages.

What people are saying:

...I admire DeLuca's quirky sense of adventure, and expertise at weaving together all of the mystifying threads without dropping any. Her prose is gorgeous. Tweens and middle-graders will love this series, as well as teens and even adults... - Catherine Stine, Goodreads,       5 Stars

...My favorite character was Mana. I am envious of all of her powers. I also liked that she seemed knowledgable, and wise beyond her years. Although this book was hit or miss for me at times, I am excited to read book two... - Kayla Eklund, Goodreads, 3 Stars

...This is the first steampunk novel I've tried that's targeted for younger readers, and after reading, I can confidently say I love the flourishing, industrializing backdrop set to Edwardian England in The Night Watchman Express; there's something just so exciting about new inventions and innovative ideas when it comes to children's stories... - Karielle, Goodreads, 4 Stars
