A Time-Travel Love Story
VIRGINIA CLEMM POE, young bride of poet and writer EDGAR ALLAN POE, has a secret that only she and her mother know. Although she was born in 1822, Virginia was conceived in the 21st century. At the point of death, she takes a formula which makes time travel possible and travels to the 21st century where she is cured. Being cured, Virginia joins the Army Rangers, and afterward, goes to work for the company which originally developed the formula for time travel. Missing her husband, she steals the formula and returns to when she and twenty-six year old Edgar were first married.
Through a series of events, she and her husband attempt time travel together. However, something goes awry. Instead of returning to Virginia’s time, they become part of an alternate Steampunk timeline. With the aid of a secret agency known as NEVERMORE and two trusted friends (Alyssa Lee and Joseph Dickens) Virginia and Edgar seek to set things right. Pitted against The Thule Society, an evil organization dedicated to the destruction of any who stand in their way and who believe the only hope of their survival is through the death of Edgar Allan Poe, our four heroes seek to save two realities – Virginia’s and the world of Steampunk
