Lost in the great machine...
Finn's childhood in the valley is idyllic, but across the plains lies a threat. Engn is an ever-growing steam-powered fortress that needs a never-ending supply of workers. Generation after generation have been taken away, escorted into its depths by the mysterious and terrifying ironclads, never to return.
The Masters of Engn first take Finn's sister, then his friend. Finn thinks he, at least, is safe - until the day the ironclads come to haul him away too.
Yet all is not lost, because Finn has a plan. In the peace of the valley he and his friends made a pact: a promise to join the mythical wreckers and end Engn's tyranny.
But now on his own, lost and thwarted in the vastness of Engn, Finn begins to have doubts. Are his friends really working to destroy Engn?
Or have they become part of the machine?

It's only when Finn and his friends travel there, intent on destroying it, that they begin to uncover the terrible truth of the machine's forgotten purpose...
