The Knack Series, Book 1

A Knack for Metal and Bone

Rowan listens to engines. Wires, gears and cogs whisper to her. With her mech hand, she feels magic coursing through them. And she's only really happy in her tinker’s lab or in the field maintaining the giant automaton that protects New Torwood City. Unfortunately, being a mechanic is a not a suitable profession for a princess.

Conall was kicked out of the army when his wolf took over in battle. Now he travels between New Torwood and the great cities to the south, trading rare artifacts for buyers with enough cash to pay his fees. And he charges a lot because between the cities, the Meadows are filled with monsters that only a wolf can outrun.
