This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Lady Marguerite lives a life most 17th-century French girls can only dream of: money, designer dresses, suitors, and a secure future. Except she suspects her heart may be falling for her best friend Claude, a common smithy in the family's steam forge. When Claude leaves for New France in search of a better life, Marguerite decides to follow him and test her suspicions of love—only the trip proves to be more harrowing than she anticipated. Love, adventure, and restitution await her if she can survive the voyage.
Beautiful, rich locations chockfull of brass cogs, automaton bots, and airships help to set the backdrop for this steampunk tale. Marguerite is a headstrong, tempestuous noble running from the life she was born into to a boy she hopes will shape her future, even if that means she has to run from everything she ever knew.
This was a fun, action-packed novel that sucked me in and held strong until the close. Pirates, flying ships, battles, romance, and adventure all await. Pick this up now!
Action, romance, danger, loss, happy ever after; had it all!
An amazing read. At first I was a little frustrated with the main character's personality, but the way she grew and turned out was wonderfully written. And loved the action and the bit of romance, all in a steampunk kind of way. Absolutely loved it!
