Praised for its steampunk world-building, The Other One follows the stories of Tom and Felix, twins who never knew the other existed, and their father, Ezra, a scientist who lives in the shadow of his past mistakes. When Felix’s mother was found murdered, he finds himself uncovering his father’s darkest secrets and racing against time to protect his family, and his clockwork city, from an imbalance which threatens to destroy them all.
