In the fantasy, steampunk city of Meiville, something has gone terribly wrong. High above the city an arcane atmospheric wonder, the Celestial Heliograph, hovers casting a powerful protective magic over the unaware world below. However, for reasons unknown it has begun to fail and the citizens of Meiville are falling ill to a strange temporal illness. Only Nym, a clever young woman with no past and nothing to guide her but a strange cog is aware of the city’s danger, and its connection to Marcel Ghostraven. The designer of the Celestial Heliograph, Ghostraven had disappeared years earlier leaving a trail of strange artifacts and dangerous enemies. Pursued by gangsters and pirates Nym finds herself entangled in a world of menace, romance, murder and magic. Can she unravel Ghostraven’s mysteries in order to find him and bring him back to Meiville before the machine-and all of time- runs out?
