What is The Wonderous Science? Imagine the ability to invent incredible wonders, imbued with the power to bend the very laws of nature. Now, imagine that power in the hands of a 12-year-old girl. Zora Sparks is a genius by all accounts. Having grown up in the foster care system, she has learned through experience to rely on herself and her own abilities, specifically her amazing skill in the Wonderous Science – a fabled knowledge that has raised kingdoms with unimaginable artifacts, and toppled societies with terrible weapons. The Laurel Society has made it their mission to guide and protect those with this amazing ability, and “contain” those that have used it for evil. Now it falls to Ms. Daisy Kidd, a member of The Wardens Division of the society, to watch after Zora and her precocious little brother, Nate. But, unknown forces are plotting in the shadows, and they have plans for the young prodigy. Can Daisy, Zora, and Nate discover what lies in the secret history of The Laurel Society before it’s to late?
