“Although the idea of a story following the Luddites in Scotland is fascinating, the plot offers much more than that premise, interlacing the perspectives of Nicholas and Ned as they navigate loss, danger, and family mysteries… and the novel’s otherworldly elements add to this mystique. Ned and Nicholas experience intriguing arcs, as does Emma… an amazingly strong female character throughout.”
– The BookLife Prize

What would you sacrifice to change your legacy?

As the Industrial Revolution threatens the way of life for many, it gives birth to rebellion. Ned Ludd, leader of the Luddites, directs an offshoot of the uprising to terrorize the factories of Scotland. While tensions between tradition and progress reach violent heights, a young boy, Nicholas Locherbie, flees his home and discovers an arcane workshop beneath the winding streets of Edinburgh.

When Ned’s revolt is interrupted by a man claiming to be his father, he must weigh his desire for truth and family against the risk of execution. His choice will not only affect his past, but Nicholas’s future, as the young boy wrestles with an obsession with the workshop and an onset of voices in his head he feels compelled to follow.

Together, they’ll uncover a connection that binds them for eternity, but risks releasing a malevolent force on everyone they love.
