Tara Sim with E.K. Johnston

We're thrilled to invite you to celebrate the launch of Firestarter, Tara Sim’s epic conclusion to the Timekeeper trilogy, a steampunk adventure set in an alternate Victorian world controlled by clock towers, where a damaged clock can fracture time―and a destroyed one can stop it completely.

The crew of the Prometheus is intent on taking down the world’s clock towers so that time can run freely. Now captives, Colton, Daphne, and the others have a stark choice: join the Prometheus’s cause or fight back in any small way they can and face the consequences. But Zavier, leader of the terrorists, has a bigger plan—to bring back the lost god of time. As new threats emerge, loyalties must shift. No matter where the Prometheus goes—Prague, Austria, India—nowhere is safe, and every second ticks closer toward the eleventh hour. Walking the line between villainy and heroism, each will have to choose what's most important: saving those you love at the expense of the many, or making impossible sacrifices for the sake of a better world.

Firestarter challenges the definitions of hero and villain in a searing testament to the power of love and grief, and how the golden threads of time bind them together

Tara will be in conversation with E.K. Johnston, author of That Inevitable Victorian Thing, Exit, Pursued by a Bear, A Thousand Nights and Star Wars: Ahsoka

Later Event: January 20
