cog_st_smallThirteen-year-old Cog loved getting her hands greasy in her Uncle’s workshop and building the occasional mud-cannon, until her mother’s return completely derailed her life. Before long, she’s stowing away on a royal airship and tricking her way into a dream apprenticeship with the Queen’s master engineer by pretending to be a boy named Claude. But her situation takes a dangerous turn when she discovers a plot to assassinate the Queen and throw the kingdom into war.

If Cog can keep her identity a secret despite her best friend’s crush on Claude, unravel the deadly conspiracy, and keep the demanding master engineer happy, then maybe she can have the future she’s always wanted. Saving kingdoms may not be the same as fixing an auto-mechanical potion mixer, but Cog has a set of precision screwdrivers and she isn’t afraid to use them.

Follow Cog’s rollicking adventure as she uses her wits and ingenuity to find friendship, trust, and justice in a colorful but sometimes unforgiving steampunk world full of mechanical mayhem.
