    At 17, Claire Trevelyan, daughter of Viscount St. Ives, was expected to do nothing more than pour an elegant cup of tea, sew a fine seam, and catch a rich husband. Unfortunately, Claire's talents lie not in the ballroom, but in the chemistry lab, where things have a regrettable habit of blowing up. When her father gambles the estate on the combustion engine and loses, Claire finds herself down and out on the mean streets of London. But being a young woman of resources and intellect, she turns fortune on its head. It's not long before a new leader rises in the underworld, known only as the Lady of Devices...

    Slow start...never recovers

    Shelley Adina tries to enter into the "strong-willed female in a steampunk Victorian Britain" space...a space occupied by many other writers. Because..Show More »

    An air voyage to remember turns into a disaster no one may survive. With her orphaned charges, Lady Claire Trevelyan joins the Earl of Dunsmuir’s family on an airship voyage to the Americas. If she can stay out of Lord James Selwyn’s way until her eighteenth birthday, she will be of age and cannot be forced into marriage. What she doesn’t know is that Lord James is in the Americas, too, with Andrew Malvern closing in on him - and the wonderful device he stole.

    Where is the Lady of Devices?

    I loved the first book, I had some grievances with the second being a tad on the "more complicated than necessary for plot convenience". But with book..Show More »

    Lady Claire Trevelyan had been looking forward to glittering balls, congenial society, and relief from pursuit during her stay with Lord and Lady Dunsmuir in the Canadas. Well, perhaps not entirely. Being pursued by a handsome airship captain is rather diverting, especially when it appears her erstwhile employer, Andrew Malvern, is becoming much too distracted by a certain blond mechanic.

    Fabulous Conclution

    I enjoyed these books so much and did not want the story to end. however it was a fantasticly fun action packed ending to a perfect story line. Thank ..Show More »

    Now 16, twins Lizzie and Maggie are educated young ladies who have not been called "the Mopsies" in years - except by their guardian, Lady Claire Trevelyan. With the happy prospect of choosing their own future, the girls can leave their dodgy past behind, and Lizzie can bury her deepest childhood memories where they can do no harm.

    Engaging and endearing.

    This series is an incredibly well written set of books within the Steampunbk genre, and Adina expertly walks the line between a brilliant, steam-infus..Show More »

    Under normal circumstances, Maggie and Lizzie would be delighted to meet their long-lost relatives and be reunited with those who had believed them dead, but when are the Mopsies' circumstances ever to be considered normal? With her half brother, Claude Seacombe, Lizzie travels to Cornwall to meet her mother's parents. Maggie goes along, too, since she is part of the family...or so one might assume.

    I love this series!

    loved it. strong and nurturing female characters mixed with adventure. British and other accents. what's not to love?
