When Lex’s girlfriend dies during a mission, the only way he can save her is to retrieve the Dox, a piece of tech which allows Rifters to re-enter  their own timeline without collapsing the time stream. But the Dox is  hidden deep within the Telsa Institute, which means Lex must go into the enemy camp. It’s there he meets Ember, and the past that was stolen  from them both comes flooding back.
Now armed with the truth of who they are, Lex and Ember must work together to save the future before the battle for time destroys them both…again.

Kirkus Reviews
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
