Synopsis: In the next chapter of the Extraordinary Adventures of Clockwork Charlie trilogy, Charlie must save his friends and deliver a dangerous message!
Charlie lived a quiet life—until his father was suddenly kidnapped by the Iron Cog. In the midst of searching for his father, Charlie discovered the shocking truth about himself: he is one of his father’s inventions—a living clockwork boy!
Now separated from his friends, Charlie finds himself in the service of a very tough company of dwarves, who view him only as a machine—that is, until a heroic act makes them his closest allies. Soon Charlie must rescue his friends and face the Iron Cog head-on. But Charlie wonders . . . will he ever find his own kind?
