To save her friends and family, apprentice thief Ruby Teach bargained with the man who chased her across the sea and through an alternate version of colonial Philadelphia. Now she’s training to become a soldier in the war he foresees and being experimented on by the army’s scientists. Ruby’s blood holds a secret, if only someone can unlock it.
Meanwhile, Captain Teach and Ruby’s friends—a motley crew made up of a young aristocrat, a servant, an alchemist, and mysterious woodswoman—are racing against time to find and liberate Ruby. Kent Davis’s imagining of a colonial America powered by alchemy is fascinating and wholly original, and he sweeps our heroes through cities and unsettled territories with imagination, humor, and magic. This action-packed trilogy has equal appeal for both boy and girl readers—there’s never a dull moment.
Kent Davis is the author of A Riddle in Ruby. He is also an actor, a game designer, and a teacher. He lives in Bozeman, Montana, with his wife and a wily dog ninja named Bobo. www.kentishdavis.com
Hi this is Endy here! I was so happy when I found out this book was its way! I dived into it as soon as it came and I finished it in two days. This one was even better than the first one. This picked right up where the events of book one left off and this one did not disappoint at all. I was absorbed as soon as I started and it stayed that way until the very last page.
We learn so much about the the characters from the first book. This one will make you smile, cry, I loved the this book so much I can’t wait for book three. All the characters were well written. The author did an amazing job creating tough characters and challenges.
This one is a little slower pace than book one. But it worked out well of this story. Everyone should read this if they loved book one.
