Genres: Steampunk, Young Adult
Two opposing factions of time travelers vie for
control of the future in this thrilling steampunk series opener dubbed “Interesting” and
“Unexpected” by Kirkus Reviews.
Lex and Ember—two time travelers with no memories of their lives before being
recruited into the time war—are torn between the factions. When Lex accepts a mission
that lands him deep within the heart of the Telsa Institute, he meets Ember, and the
past that was stolen from them comes flooding back. Now armed with the truth of who
they were, Lex and Ember must work together to save the future before the battle for
time destroys them once again.
Sherry D. Ficklin is a full time writer from Colorado where she
lives with her husband, four kids, two dogs, and a fluctuating number of chickens and
house guests. A former military brat, she loves to travel and meet new people. She can
often be found browsing her local bookstore with a large white hot chocolate in one
hand and a towering stack of books in the other. That is, unless she’s on deadline at
which time she, like the Loch Ness monster, is only seen in blurry photographs.
Tyler H. Jolley is a sci-fi/fantasy author and full-time orthodontist,
periodontist (see: Overachiever). He divides his spare time between writing, reading,
mountain biking, and camping with his family.
