Written by Eli Brown

Clover is unsure of exactly what befell her mother. All she knows is that it was due to an Oddity and that her father prohibits them. But she can’t help but be entranced by these rare magical objects and the ways they might be able to help her and her father. She doesn’t completely understand why her father is so against their amazing abilities. Her father is a poor physician, and the failed Louisiana Purchase has left the area impoverished and at war with France. Then she finds an ice hook that will freeze anything it touches. He is appalled and it leads to his murder. But before his demise he tells her to run and sends her on a mission. What is the truth of her parent’s past? Fans of alternate history will enjoy this adventure filled with magic.
