The Starlight Watchmaker


Hugo works at a prestigious academy where wealthy students from across the galaxy come to learn.  He toils in an attic room as a watchmaker. He doesn’t complain about his working conditions because he knows many androids like him are jobless and homeless.

One day Dorian, a duke from a far away galaxy, appears at his door asking Hugo to repair his broken time travel watch.  The watch leads them to discover a sinister scheme – someone is stealing quantum energy, placing the universe at mortal risk.  They must reconcile their differences if they are to find the culprit in time.

This is a wildly imaginative, exciting and very funny sci-fi adventure from Lauren James. The book is produced in dyslexia-friendly format. Bookwagon is delighted to recommended this terrific read.
