An adventure that will take you beyond time and back…

When Mimi Mockel discovers an unusual crimson tome in the public library, life suddenly becomes complicated. Attacked by two Ambassadors of Time, she barely manages to escape.

Safely back at home, she and her younger brother, Albert, meet the book’s author: the posh and quirky British time-traveling thief Sebastian “Bas” Barkley. When Bas invites them onboard his Bas House—a universe-hopping, time-traveling marvel of futuristic engineering—life quickly turns from bizarre to out-of-this-world crazy.

Now it’s up to Mimi to save the people from the year 4218 from a vicious world-wide civil war—if she can only believe in herself. With the help of a handsome ginger named Richie Styles, a suave and charming student at the Academy of Alchemy, her confidence blossoms and she immerses herself into her studies and training.

But the Ambassadors are closing in, testing Mimi’s resolve to the limits. Can she master alchemy and embrace her destiny as the prodigy? Or will she give into her fears and allow time to be erased…forever.

About the author

Claire was born and raised in the northwest suburbs of the great Windy City: Chicago. She started writing in high school to fend off a nasty case of insomnia that started from having strangely vivid dreams. Luckily, the writing trick worked to break insomnia, and a decade later she's still happily addicted to writing. Her favorite things in life are a fresh, steaming cup of coffee, chocolate, music, spending quality time with friends and family, Sunday mornings, and being able to sleep in late. Her least favorite chore is laundry and her favorite feeling is having a productive writing day. Claire now lives in South Carolina where she moved to be closer to family.
