Her Own Devices: A steampunk adventure novelHöfundur: Shelley Adina Lesari: Fiona Hardingham Hljóðbók
Book two in the bestselling Magnificent Devices steampunk series!
Escaped lunatics, lost children, vengeful lords, and love. Really, the situation is becoming quite impossible.
Left alone after the Arabian Bubble financial disaster, Lady Claire Trevelyan now leads the cleverest group of gamblers and reformed cutpurses in the London underworld. The lightning rifle she took from a rival gang contains a unique source of energy—and its inventor has been locked up in Bedlam by powerful men in order to suppress its very existence. In order for Lady Claire to understand it, she must consult with the mad scientist ... even if it means breaking her out of the most frightening institution in London.
Then, in a moment of madness, she becomes engaged to Lord James Selwyn, who knows nothing of her double life. He expects her to be the perfect hostess to the rich investors interested in his and Andrew Malvern's Kinetick Carbonator. But how can Andrew stand by and watch Claire marry someone she does not love?
“An immensely fun series with some excellent anti-sexist messages, a wonderful main character (one of my favourites in the genre) and a great sense of Victorian style and language that’s both fun and beautiful to read.” —Fangs for the Fantasy: The latest in urban fantasy from a social justice perspective
