Prologue- Maximus Strange and the Seven Dials

“Are you ready?”

“As ready as I’ll ever be”

Maximus took a firm grasp of Reesha’s right hand. The circle was now complete. As they turned the minute hands to face the Seventh Hour, the raised alter began to move. It’s cold dark surface grated against the ground. They began to spin, rooted to the platform, at an almost uncontrollable rate.

Behind them a crack in the earth appeared and produced a colourful spectrum of light. As it shot into the sky, the faces of the Great Clock began to turn.

Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One…

“Don’t let go!”
