She woke up naked and alone with no memories, staring up into the eyes of a handsome soldier. She had no idea who she was, how she got here, or the fact that her presence would change reality forever.


Clockwork Looking Glass follows the journey of “Alice” as she struggles to make sense of her surroundings, piecing them together with the strange visions and nightmares that are her only link to who she really is. With the help of a dashing Confederate officer, a teenage witch and a paranoid manservant, Alice soon discovers that this world of airships and Tesla towers is prowled by ghastly magic-wielding monsters, ghostlike “Clockwork Carpenters,” and the cannibalistic greed of corporations like Thorne & Wolfe.

It's a fantasy set in an alternate reality, an urban Steampunk universe that moves from the bronze and iron towers of New Yorke and haunted Philadelphia to the plantations of Louisiana, the Citadel of Thinking Machines and finally to the key that could bring Alice home... or destroy everything: Atlantis.
