Book Description

Petronaut Technician Horace Lundin doesn't believe in magic... until he witnesses its power first-hand. From that point on, the steampunk scientist is consumed with an idea. What if magic didn’t have to be chaotic and unreliable, like the wizards who practice it? What if it could be as simple as throwing a switch? Lundin and his colleagues build a music-box magician, designed to cast the spells programmed into its metal disks. But they can't keep their discovery in the safety of the workshop forever. When Princess Naomi is laid low by dark magic, will it be human or clockwork wizardry that saves the day? "Convincing & realistic multidimensional characters... rich drama and intrigue... the dialogue is witty and fast-paced. I truly enjoyed Rovik's work." --Indie Book Blog Database

Good read! The story of a young boy slowly becoming a man as he takes on impossible odds and what seems like insurmountable obstacles.

This was an easy read that combined magic and Steampunk in an entertaining way. Asks the question why some people people (magicians) can make magic by just saying words.
