Blog Tour Spotlight: Gearbreakers by Zoe Hana Mikuta

Welcome to my stop on the Gearbreakers Tour!

Today I’m here to spotlight Gearbreakers by Zoe Hana Mikuta! I personally didn’t enjoy it as much as I would have liked, but if you want to read a YA sci-fi with a sapphic romance, found family and mecha-fighting, this is the perfect book for you!

Gearbreakers by Zoe Hana Mikuta


Publisher: Feiwel & Friends / Macmillan
Publishing Date: June 29, 2021
Genre: YA Science Fiction

Two girls on opposite sides of a war discover they’re fighting for a common purpose–and falling for each other–in Zoe Hana Mikuta’s high-octane debut Gearbreakers, perfect for fans of Pacific Rim, Pierce Brown’s Red Rising Saga, and Marie Lu’s Legend series.

We went past praying to deities and started to build them instead…

The shadow of Godolia’s tyrannical rule is spreading, aided by their giant mechanized weapons known as Windups. War and oppression are everyday constants for the people of the Badlands, who live under the thumb of their cruel Godolia overlords.

Eris Shindanai is a Gearbreaker, a brash young rebel who specializes in taking down Windups from the inside. When one of her missions goes awry and she finds herself in a Godolia prison, Eris meets Sona Steelcrest, a cybernetically enhanced Windup pilot. At first Eris sees Sona as her mortal enemy, but Sona has a secret: She has intentionally infiltrated the Windup program to destroy Godolia from within.

As the clock ticks down to their deadliest mission yet, a direct attack to end Godolia’s reign once and for all, Eris and Sona grow closer–as comrades, friends, and perhaps something more…
