All Is Fair in Love and Revolution

Description

It's 1888, and seventeen-year-old Verity Newton lands a job in New York as a governess to a wealthy leading family—but she quickly learns that the family has big secrets. Magisters have always ruled the colonies, but now an underground society of mechanics and engineers are developing non-magical sources of power via steam engines that they hope will help them gain freedom from British rule. The family Verity works for is magister—but it seems like the children's young guardian uncle is sympathetic to the rebel cause. As Verity falls for a charming rebel inventor and agrees to become a spy, she also becomes more and more enmeshed in the magister family's life. She soon realizes she's uniquely positioned to advance the cause—but to do so, she'll have to reveal her own dangerous secret.

Customer Reviews

Bette than expected!

I really enjoyed this book. It is a simple read based in an alternate timeline to earth. Magic is common, but only the nobles/magisters have the ability to use magic. Everyone else is lower class in society.

So the beginnings of a revolution where you have some of the wealthy who help in their Robin Hood ways and the rebels.... but the story has a steam punk flare.

Add in a level headed heroine who is a well rounded character and you've got a great story!

I do truly hope there will be a part 2!
