Book Description: Once Gavin Ennock sailed the skies on airships and enchanted listeners with his fiddle music. Now the clockwork plague consumes his intellect, enabling him to conceive and construct scientific wonders -- while driving him quite mad. Distressed by her beloved's unfortunate condition, Alice Michaels sought a cure rumored to be inside the Doomsday Vault -- and brought the wrath of the British Empire down on them.
Declared enemies of the Crown, Alice and Gavin have little choice but to flee to China in search of a cure. Accompanying them is Dr. Clef, a mad genius driven to find the greatest and most destructive force the world has even seen: the Impossible Cube. If Dr. Clef gets his hands on the Cube, the entire universe will face extinction.
And Gavin holds the key to its re-creation....
