A prison without locks or bars
About the Book
The sun is setting over the fog of the harbor. The night invades the silence of the room as the bells rings in the distance, counting the hours. Akazia look up from her notes, her training began a year ago and still she feels like she knows nothing about the figures sitting still on their shelf in this prison without locks or bars.
The second of my concept Steampunk short stories, Sleeping Dolls explore the fate of the dolls when they don't have a family.
Created over 50yrs ago by an engineering genius, the original Dolls are a race of mechanical humanoids that can often be mistaken for humans. After creating over a hundred of them, their Creator died mysteriously, leaving his secrets to two apprentices who disappeared quickly thereafter. With the science behind creating living Dolls lost, a group of engineers created the Manikin guild with the mandate to find, repair and study the original Dolls hoping it would lead to discovering their secret.
