It’s not ticking, because it’s dead.
At first, nothing seems very different about the antique clock Merrill’s grandfather brings home to rebuild and repair, but then it chimes loudly one night without stopping. When Merrill investigates the phenomena, she’s hurdled from her safe, predictable world into a magical place, simply called The Clock World. She learns she is a Time Maiden, the only one who can fix a strange clock hanging in the sky, and she can’t go home until she does. Guided by the ramblings of her clever cat, Crook, Merrill sets off on a journey to discover how to put things right.

When Alex is fifteen, her entire life changes. At least, she knows it changed, but she remembers very little of the time before her accident. Even the strange, dying world surrounding her breathes little life into her memories. Everything just feels wrong, especially the radiation that covers the earth, infiltrates the sea and sky, and burns across a red, polluted horizon. Wolves prosper in a plagued world on the brink of becoming an icy, desolate wasteland. Alex has secrets. It's just difficult piecing them together. Her connection with wolves is like magic. She might almost be happy in her new home filled with strangers if she wasn't pursued by a mysterious and all-powerful enemy that just might be a figment of her imagination. Her nightmares suggest otherwise. Alex has choices to make before her reality spins out of control and risks everything to uncover the truth about her past. What she learns might just be enough to save the world as the human population dwindles and the wolves fight for control.
