The Girl with One Friend (The Factory Girl Trilogy #2)

With the diabolical agents of the Clockwork Garden on their trail and Sir Tantalus Blackmore's crooked men closing in, Kora and her best friend Erasmus Darwin must survive from day to day and try to uncover the monstrous plots surrounding them.

Yet even though they have friends and allies, danger is never far away, and soon they find themselves on the run. But when all seems lost, an unlikely helping hand is extended by their enemy.

And so, facing a tragic deadline mere months away, Kora and Erasmus make a fateful decision that saves their lives but places them at the mercy of those who would oppose, chase and capture them. Some of their new friends may not be friends after all...

A breathtaking adventure through an alternative Edwardian Britain and beyond, where clockwork automata and their makers threaten to change the world forever.
