When a mob of angry investors in Claire's father's now worthless company decide to riot and burn the family home, Lady Claire is forced to flee the streets of London in the family Landau. And that's where Claire's adventure begins for real. Accosted in Jack, the Ripper's Whitechapel area of London, Claire's relieved of her belongings and her beloved Landau. She's left unconscious on the street. That is, until a crew of young street urchins find her. What comes next is a wonderful story of trust, friendship and help the comes from the most unexpected places.
Shelley Adina's opened the door to a Victorian Steampunk world that fascinates us in today's 21st Century. "Lady of Devices", the first of Adina's trilogy in the Magnificent Devices series, is full of wonderful characters from the Lords and Ladies to the charmingly drawn young gang of hoodlums that Claire falls in with. Adina manages to lure us into the steampunk era with joy and excitement.Read more ›
Finally, though, I gave in and downloaded the sample, and am I ever glad I did. I tore through this and its sequel Her Own Devices in the space of an evening (practically made myself late for an appointment, but finished just in time), and have spent the bulk of my time since recommending it to everyone I meet. I admit; the grocery store attendant looked at me pretty oddly.
The basics: Claire Trevelyan at 17 has the perfect life for her time period. She's the daughter of a powerful British noble in the latter days of Victorian England, steam power and sundry standard steampunk inventions are really taking off, and the worst problem she has is figuring how to convince her mother to let her apply to study engineering instead of making the socially appropriate marriage that is expected of her. But then tragedy strikes; her father, having foolishly invested almost all of their fortune in the non-starter technology of combustion engines (*snork*), loses virtually everything. Her family is forced into exile to their country estates, and through a series of unfortunate events Lady Claire finds herself on the streets.
And then things really kick into gear.Read more ›

I really liked the main character because she stuck to her guns. In this case, gun. I hope she stops caring about her delicate reputation amongst society folk at some point.Published 15 days ago by Lisa Kuhn
