Werks, Queens, and Other Dangerous Things

Description

It's 1897. Powerful Dutch politicians -- and its inexperienced Queen Mina-- are being attacked by clockwerks of destruction. In response, the Royal Council is forcing her into a close alliance with either Britain or Germany. But Mina is no fool. She knows that Queen Victoria and Kaiser Wilhelm are looking for kingdoms to conquer, not friends.
Bakianto of Java hasn't the luxury of throwing away any opportunity. When offered an apprenticeship at Noordeinde Palace, he takes it. Mayhaps he can use it as a chance to improve his skills while he tracks down the father who abandoned him. Say what you will of the palace: it suits his purpose.
The number of attacks is becoming more frequent. She must find a way to protect her kingdom. He needs to answer the riddle of his family. Can they do it before time runs out?
