Ellowyn and her stepfather, Dr. Edward Von Heikenroter, put the island of Fairburg on the map. Their little shop on Main Street specializing the creation, and maintenance, of fully functional mechanical limbs, restored the livelihood of war veterans and factory accident survivors alike. But when Everett Greene, owner of a local greenhouse, presents the pair with an artificial limb built with a level of technology far beyond anything they've seen before, Dr. Von Heikenroter disappears. Ellowyn and Everett pick up the trail he left off and discover that under Fairburg's idyllic exterior nothing is as it seems.
