Westie, the notorious adopted daughter of local inventor Nigel Butler.
was only a child when she lost her arm and her family to cannibals on
the wagon trail. Nine years later, Westie may seem fearsome with her
foul-mouthed tough exterior and the powerful mechanical arm built for
her by Nigel, but the memory of her past still haunts her. She’s
determined to make the killers pay for their crimes—and there’s nothing
to stop her except her own reckless ways.
But Westie’s search
ceases when a wealthy family comes to town looking to invest in Nigel’s
latest invention, a machine that can harvest magic from gold—which Rogue
City desperately needs as the magic wards that surround the city start
to fail. There’s only one problem: the investors look exactly like the
family who murdered Westie’s kin. With the help of Nigel’s handsome but
scarred young assistant, Alistair, Westie sets out to prove their guilt.
But if she’s not careful, her desire for revenge could cost her the
family she has now.
