Publisher's Summary

Book 4 of the Magnificent Devices series! A lady of resources has the power to change the world-if she can stay alive long enough to do it.

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.

But a shot fired in the night puts an end to such diversions, and instead plunges her and her orphaned band of children into a fight for their very survival. Between secret conversations at the highest levels of society and skullduggery in the diamond mines, Claire must discover who is behind a series of alarming attempts on her friends' lives-before her mother is compelled to make funeral arrangements yet again.

Brilliant devices

While I enjoyed this book for the most part, I became restless for it to be finished the last hour or so. I was relieved when the ending was announced.

Could not put it down

This story was well written and beautifully narrated. We had 3 adults and 2 teenagers on a 2 day trip each way. We hated to stop for anything, and as soon as we were back driving, everyone wanted the story to continue. we got through the first 4 books and had to buy the rest so as to finish this delightful series.

Another awesome story, fabulously told

This latest instalment in the series is fabulously narrated, really bringing the tales of the characters' adventures in "The Canadas" to life. A wonderful story full of romance, action, adventure, diamond mines, steampunk elements, Victorian society, airships, munitions, and of course Devices!
I highly recommend this series for all lovers of adventure with a steampunk twist, whatever your age
