I have a clock for a heart…
And the man who put it there tried to take it out.
Time Collectors are modern day genies capable of exchanging wishes for time. Elizabeth Wicker lives within a steampunk world riddled with the supernatural. Among the stories of witches, Bacts and other monsters, Time Collectors remain as the greatest hushed secret among the noble families.
They are temptation's greatest tools. A contract with a Time Collector is a guaranteed death sentence, and for some the price isn't worth the prize.
But when Elizabeth is struck down by a fatal heart attack, she finds herself trapped beneath a Time Collector's blade. With no time left to offer, she makes a desperate sacrifice at a second chance of life.
If there's only one truth, it is a Time Collector will always come back to collect.
