Praise for The Lost Imperials novels:
Steampunk and time travel combine to provide pizazz in this series opener about a long-lost royal brother and sister, the surviving Romanovs. Ficklin and Jolley handle the rather intricate plotline well, populating the time stream with interesting characters that pop up in various unexpected places. The steampunk scenario adds a great deal of zest to the proceedings, with top hats, leather corsets and a variety of steam-driven contrivances providing set dressing. Kids who pick it up won’t encounter much real history, but they’ll be reading it for fun anyway. (Steampunk. 12 & up)
Dual narratives keep the pace brisk and the tension high. While readers looking for technological details based on plausible science may be disappointed, there are enough corsets and gadgetry to satisfy even the biggest steampunk fans. Packed with hand-to-hand combat and mind-bending paradoxical conundrums, this quick, suspenseful read has a guaranteed audience.– Summer Hayes
“Brother and sister bound to opposing factions, each fighting to preserve the balance of time – talk about sibling rivalry. But as Lex and Ember unearth the origins of their respective leaders they are forced to decide where their true loyalties lie. Authors, Ficklin and Jolley, have hammered out a clockwork tale filled with mystery, action, and alternate history. Once the gears of this book lock you into place, prepare to be EXTRACTED from the here and now, and thrust into a daring new world.” - Judith Graves
“EXTRACTED presents a fascinating steampunk world jammed packed with cool gadgets, time travel, and romance–I was hooked from the first action-packed page to the last.” -Renee Collins, author of RELIC
