About the Book    About the Author

Targeted by a mad scientist's deadly serum, these outcasts band together to uncover the truth and to fight back. Spire City is home to mighty machines of steam power and clockwork, and giant beetles pull picturesque carriages over cobbled streets, but there is a darker secret behind these wonders. A deadly infection, created by a mad scientist, is spreading through the city, targeting the poor and powerless, turning them slowly into animals. A group of those infected by the serum join together to survive, to trick the wealthy out of their money, and to fight back.

Editorial Reviews

"What I liked most about this series is the feel of the city with its many spires with singers chained to the top of each, their songs guiding the beetles who toil for men with seemingly no thought. Some of the imagery is mesmerizing and I thought the author did a wonderful job of giving me a sense of place. I really felt as if I could go and visit Spire City." -sffworld.com, staff reviewer N. E. White
