Trenton Colman is exceptionally creative with a knack for all things mechanical. But his talents are viewed with suspicion in Cove, a steam-powered city built inside a mountain. In Cove, creativity is a crime and “invention” is a curse word.

Kallista Babbage is a repair technician and daughter of the notorious Leo Babbage, who died in an explosion—an event the leaders of Cove point to as an example of the danger of creativity.

Working together, Trenton and Kallista learn that Leo Babbage was developing a secret project before he perished. Following clues he left behind, they begin to assemble a strange machine that is unlike anything they’ve ever seen before. They soon discover that what they are building may threaten every truth their city is founded on—and quite possibly their very lives.

About the Author

Recently, J. Scott Savage took his family on a much-needed camping trip to an undisclosed forest. The trip must have been restful because he is now getting twice as much done. In an odd twist, he also now claims to have eight children: Good Erica, Evil Erica, Good Scott, Evil Scott, Good Jake, Evil Jake, Good Nick, and Evil Nick. His wife, Jennifer, was recently spotted at Disney World and Disneyland on the same day. And Pepper barks twice as much. This is the third volume in his Case File 13 series.
