Steven Harper continues his steampunk series begun in The Doomsday Vault with Gavin, Lady Alice, Feng, and Dr. Clef fleeing from the Third Ward Lieutenant Susan Phipps. She intends to return Gavin and Lady Alice to England for hanging.

From official release/information:

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....
