"At the dawn of Niune's Industrial Age, the Seelie Court, a heartless half-human aristocracy that annihilates any glimmer of fae power, holds the kingdom in an iron fist. Ignorant of her own dark birthright, Mina Cole is a factory slave whose gifts cannot be suppressed. In a moment of terror, she betrays her heritage to the hunters, and her only hope for survival lies in the hands of a man crippled in body and soul."--Cover

Dr. Malachi made "siblings" Jin and Delilah of clockwork and spare parts, human and otherwise. They have one purpose: to assassinate Queen Rowena so Dr. Malachi can profit from the war that will surely follow. When Jin discovers Dr. Malachi's plans, he runs away, but to his despair he must leave Delilah behind. Life in the outside world is terrifying for Jin, who has never been away from his creator's estate and can barely pass for human. Now Dr. Malachi's other creations--mechanical men and zombies--have picked up his trail. When Jin crashes through young mechanic Molly Feldman's roof, she sees the humanity beneath the metal and decides to hide him, but soon Malachi's creatures are after her, too. If Jin doesn't rescue Delilah, she'll be forced to assassinate the Queen or die in the attempt. He needs Molly's help, but if she finds out he was built for the same purpose, it may be the end for Delilah and Jin both
A comparison of wing muscles in three birds of prey : correlation of functional and behavioral differences by Elaine Corvidae( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Flight is energetically costly but essential to survival in birds. Therefore, locomotor structure, including skeletal and muscular characteristics, is adapted to reflect the flight style necessitated by different ecological niches. Red-tailed Hawks (Buteo jamaicensis) soar to locate their prey, Cooper's Hawks (Accipiter cooperii) actively chase down avian prey, and Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) soar and hover to locate fish. In this study, wing ratios, proportions of skeletal elements, and relative sizes of flight muscles were compared between these species. Oxidative and glycolytic enzyme activities of several muscles were also analyzed via assays for citrate synthase (CS) and for lactate dehydrogenase (LDH). It was found that structural characteristics of these three raptors fit within prevailing aerodynamic theory. The similarity of enzymatic capacity among different muscles of the three species shows low physiological diversity and suggests that wing architecture may play a greater role in determining flight styles for these birds
