Seventeen-year-old Lady Claire Trevelyan, left alone after the Arabian bubble financial disaster claims home and family, now leads the cleverest gang in the London underworld. Between outwitting a rival gang, inventing a device that will net her and her scientist employer worldwide fame, and keeping her mother from marrying her off, she can almost forget that a powerful lord wants to get closer… and if he succeeds, can destroy it all with a single word…

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. This is a fun series with interesting characters and story lines. The narration is also excellent and just MAKES the story!
It's hard to choose a favorite character because they all interact so well - I love them all!
No, I haven't ever listened to her before, but if I were considering a book and she was the narrator, that would definitely sell me on it!
Yes - the plot was engaging. I really did not want to stop.
The narrator has an odd speaking cadence and frequently pauses awkwardly, cutting sentences in half. It felt a bit like a bad William Shatner impression.
The First book started slowly but I took a chance on Book 2 and the Steampunk world opened up and pulled me in. Wow what fun!
In the upper tier
They're all great
Perfect distinction between characters
Yes but no spoilers here
It's extremely difficult to find great books that are both exciting and clean for older children or teens when books are not rated as movies are. These stories offer an engaging story line as well as triumphs of good over evil. Well done Adina!
New series suggestions?
The series continues to enfold you into 19th century Britain, where industry and invention have become the all-consuming goal. Our heroine has found herself battling between two factions; one is societal norms and one being her life’s work. The narrator continues to be amazing, and has never missed a character yet. The story line continues to improve. Audiable please record the last few books.
it was great. I thought it was going to be the steampunk version of Mean Girls but it was delightful. My only complaint is the brevity of the book. The author could have easily drawn out the book and I find it baffling that none of the other street gangs didn't bother her. but still a good solid read/listen.
