The clockwork tale of Black Beauty, Santa Claus, the Muffin Man, Humpty Dumpty, and more, is about to begin.

With the smoldering ruins of her life’s work all around her, inventor and adventurer Christina Creangle didn’t think twice about the offer from the secret society known as the Moufan. They had been allied with people she trusted for decades, and the idea of her senile father having a peaceful place to spend his remaining days, joined by her and her sidekick Mounira, took a tremendous weight off her shoulders. But with the winds of history changing, and airships in foreign skies, can even the Moufan resist taking advantage of having the creator of the legendary mechanical horses in their grasp? 

From the pages of Adam Dreece's international best-selling series, The Yellow Hoods, comes an all new steampunk meets fairy tale series of heart, legacy, and duty.

Since then, he's written a post-apocalyptic fantasy series, The Wizard Killer, and a science fiction high-tech thriller, The Man of Cloud 9.

The Grishaverse will be coming to Netflix soon with Shadow and Bone, an original series!

Enter the Grishaverse with Book One of the Shadow and Bone Trilogy by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom.

Soldier. Summoner. Saint. Orphaned and expendable, Alina Starkov is a soldier who knows she may not survive her first trek across the Shadow Fold—a swath of unnatural darkness crawling with monsters. But when her regiment is attacked, Alina unleashes dormant magic not even she knew she possessed.

Now Alina will enter a lavish world of royalty and intrigue as she trains with the Grisha, her country’s magical military elite—and falls under the spell of their notorious leader, the Darkling. He believes Alina can summon a force capable of destroying the Shadow Fold and reuniting their war-ravaged country, but only if she can master her untamed gift.

As the threat to the kingdom mounts and Alina unlocks the secrets of her past, she will make a dangerous discovery that could threaten all she loves and the very future of a nation.

Welcome to Ravka . . . a world of science and superstition where nothing is what it seems.

The Grishaverse will be coming to Netflix soon with Shadow and Bone, an original series!

Enter the Grishaverse with Book Three of the Shadow and Bone Trilogy by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom.

Soldier. Summoner. Saint. The nation’s fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

The Darkling rules from his shadow throne while a weakened Alina Starkov recovers from their battle under the dubious protection of the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Now her hopes lie with the magic of a long-vanished ancient creature and the chance that an outlaw prince still survives.

As her allies and enemies race toward war, only Alina stands between her country and a rising tide of darkness that could destroy the world. To win this fight, she must seize a legend’s power—but claiming the firebird may be her ruin.
