Can she write a world gone wrong?
A certain pen, a certain book, and a certain person can craft entirely new worlds through a branch of science called scriptology. Elsa comes from one such world that was written into creation by her mother―a noted scriptologist.
But when her home is attacked and her mother kidnapped, Elsa is forced to cross into the real world and use her own scriptology gifts to find her. In an alternative Victorian Italy, Elsa finds a secret society of pazzerellones―young people with a gift for mechanics, alchemy, or scriptology―and meets Leo, a gorgeous mechanist with a smart mouth and tragic past. She recruits the help of these fellow geniuses just as an assassin arrives on their doorstep.
In this thrilling debut, worlds collide as Elsa unveils a deep political conspiracy seeking to unlock the most dangerous weapon ever created―and only she can stop it.
Why I Can’t Wait:
The synopsis for this book sounds amazing. The story appears to be a steampunk fantasy that promises to take the reader in a brand new world filled with magic and mystery. This is Gwendolyn Clare’s debut novel and in addition to a very intriguing story, the book itself sounds like it would be fun to go through as Mike Heath is listed as an illustrator. I have not seen a copy of this yet, but as the novel appears to be steampunk, I think that maybe it will come with some amazing illustration that would help us visualize the mechanics detailed in the story.
