A new young adult trilogy by actor, playwright, and game designer Kent Davis will release in fall 2015. The Key to the Catalyst series will be Davis’ debut in fiction.
The Key to the Catalyst is a steampunk series set in an era called the Chemistal Age, an alternate version of 18th century colonial America, “a world filled with cobalt gearbeasts, alchemical automatons, and devilish secret societies”. The first book of the series, A Riddle in Ruby, follows 13-year-old Aruba “Ruby” Teach, a smuggler’s daughter and picklock prodigy, and her servant Clam.
The first book in the series is due to be published in fall 2015 by Greenwillow.
