My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have come to think of myself as a ghost that travels along with Lady Clare and the rest of the crew! This time we traveled from the railroad mishap to Reno, then met up with some friends from London. From there we travel to the Canada’s. Alice got to meet her father and step Mother. Also, it was nice to see Alice get out of her comfort zone. She got dressed up and went to dinner on Count Von Zeppellin’s ship. As always the Mopsies never failed at humor and roughing around! The rest of the gang was wonderful as well! This book did not fail when it came to adventure, intrigue, and mayhem! I can’t wait til the next book is out! I love this 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 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.
“Great fun, extremely feel-good reads that make you share all of the protagonists’ journeys and victories … an excellent steampunk series.” —Fangs for the Fantasy: The latest in urban fantasy from a social justice perspective
