Requirements: Epub reader/Azw3 reader, 1.50 Mb
Overview: At first glance, the small continent of Arclid may appear similar to Great Britain at the beginning of the industrial revolution. However societal rules regarding gender, race, and sexuality are very different. These differences shape the lives of our protagonists, the would-be-princess Lady Elisandrine ‘Elise’ Falk and Nessa Clay, a farmer’s daughter who’s chasing her dreams.
Having to leave their old lives behind, they decide to travel together. They find things that make them different and should keep them apart. They also find themselves magnetically drawn to each other, no matter how hard they resist their increasing longing for each other.
In the modern and dangerous city of Nightport, brimming with exciting innovations in clockwork and steam power, strange events start to surround them. Unknown men ask questions regarding their whereabouts and small packages wrapped neatly in midnight blue paper with white ribbon start to arrive.
With the help of some new friends they meet along the way, Elise and Nessa start to unravel the mysteries — and their feelings for one another.
