Summary

An orphan, abandoned at a children's home with only a strange artefact, pieces together her past after a member of a sinister secret society arrives to claim her as his missing relative.

Tess de Sousa is no ordinary orphan. When a wealthy stranger appears at Ackerbee's Home for Lost and Foundlings claiming to be her relative, she embarks on a new life with him. She takes nothing more than her pet tarantula Violet and a strange device that she was left as a baby.

But far from providing answers to Tess's mysterious past, it becomes clear that her guardian's interest in her is part of a terrible plan. With the future of more than one world at stake, it's up to Tess to stop him.
