When she gets a sneak peek at the locomotive plans, she suspects that the man is either a genius, or a ferromancer--one of the dreaded metal mages of Europe's industrial revolution.Determined to reveal her suspicions, Briar takes the plans and heads for the newspaper office in Columbus, stealing the family boat in the process.
