Ander is a prince, diplomat, and soldier in the clockwork army. Upon returning to his home from a months-long diplomatic mission, he learns that his father, the king, is dying. His sister is ill from grief, and their older brother is mad with power and an intense hatred of the kingdom’s enemies, among whom may be a long lost family member. Ander’s journey to discover the truth takes him beyond the borders of the kingdom, and his duty to his king.
