“LIBBY SINKS TO THE GROUND, SOBBING LIKE HER HEART IS BREAKING. OUR KIDNAPPERS ARE ALMOST UPON US. I SEE WHAT THE MAN IN THE TIGER MASK IS HOLDING NOW. A GUN.”
Years have passed since the love between Sephy – a Cross – and Callum – a Nought – destroyed their world and changed their families and society forever.
Life seems very different now. Being a Nought or a Cross isn’t like it used to be: people aren’t divided by race or class anymore – at least on the surface . . .
For the first time ever, a Nought Prime Minister, Tobey Durbridge is in power – but he;s just been framed for murder. To free himself he’ll have to turn to his oldest friend – Callie Rose. But the divisions between their families are deep, and when two young people close to them are kidnapped, everything they’ve fought for is put in the firing line.
Because when you’re playing a game as dangerous as this one, it won’t be long before someone gets caught in the crossfire . . .
Brothers George and Douglas Abernathy are clockmakers who are barely scraping a living in their family’s shop. They are also brilliant inventors with a sideline building custom-built androids and other technology ahead of its time. Their sixteen-year-old sister, Molly, is also a genius, specialising in transformative plant biology, but earns her keep by sewing.
The Abernathys’ fortunes improve dramatically when the brothers invent a clockwork automaton composer named Maestro, whose musical artistry takes London by storm. But there are those who believe Maestro is a fake, and others who think him a monstrosity.
As Maestro tries to make sense of the world of London’s high-society which he is thrown into, he incites the interest of sinister figures who would go to any lengths to discover what makes him tick.
