Synopses & Reviews
In a time when the Industrial Revolution has become an all-out war, Mad Science rules the World...with mixed success. At Transylvania Polygnostic University, Agatha Clay is a student with trouble concentrating and rotten luck. Dedicated to her studies but unable to build anything that actually works, she seems destined for a lackluster career as a minor lab assistant. But when the University is overthrown, a strange clank stalks the streets and it begins to look like Agatha might carry a spark of Mad Science after all.

"The art style and abundant humor soften any harsh edges the book might have violence is played chiefly for laughs. Readers who like steampunk, plucky heroines, or are fans of the Foglios' other works should enjoy this book." VOYA
