Praise for The Turncoat's Gambit:
"As in the previous two volumes, there is plenty of fighting and chicanery, but one of the best things about this series is that the characters are never sacrificed on the altar of action. . . . Series readers will especially relish the last several chapters. Yes, there is fighting and death, but restoration and romance win the day."--Booklist
Praise for The Conjurer's Riddle:
"This is classic steampunk [with] exotic and picturesque locales, lots of interesting machinery, and the adrenaline rush of following the adventures of an honest and fearless heroine. A suitably swashbuckling sequel."--Kirkus Reviews
Praise for The Inventor's Secret:
* "Cremer...creates an inventive blend of steampunk and alternative history in this new series. She gives readers a fantastical world with mechanical wonders and an opulent vintage setting. The characters are interesting and well developed. Readers will be drawn to future installments."--VOYA,starred review
"[A]n entertaining romp in a richly imaginative setting."--Kirkus Reviews

Meanwhile, Charlotte's friends are attempting to find and rescue them. This story has great steampunk detail in an alternate world where the revolutionaries lost the American revolution and are still under control of the British Empire. I liked that the women were as brave and intrepid as the men. I liked the floating city and the ships that could take to the air to get away from pursuit. I thought the battles with the steampunk weaponry were well done.
I liked that Charlotte wasn't going to automatically follow the revolution just because she had been raised to be a revolutionary but was tweaking her participation to fit with her goals and her conscience.
Fans of alternate history, steampunk, and adventure will enjoy this series.
Guys! Guys! Ahh! It is finally here! Book 3! Yes!
Pirates, steampunk, alchemy, spies... I mean, what does this book NOT have?! It feels like it has everything! And it is all wrapped up so nicely and entertainingly!
The Turncoat's Gambit, as I have pointed out, is book 3 in The Inventor's Secret series. This makes it the final book for these characters and this world and it makes me sad that we have to say goodbye, but it had to happen sometime. Normally I prolong my farewells and take forever to finish a series, but I couldn't do it with this one. I had to know. I had to finish it. I couldn't put off a book containing pirates and steampunk. I just couldn't.
This third book in the series has us picking up where we left off in book two. On a pirate ship! Jack, Charlotte, Meg, Linette, and Grave are all on the run from both the Empire and the Resistance. Both sides are wanting Grave for their own purposes and Charlotte cannot give him up. She believes Grave deserves a better fate that to be their puppet and science project. So they have employed the pirate, LaChance, to help them escape and get to safety.
Unfortunately for them, there is a turncoat in their midst. But who is it?
And this leads us to all the crazy adventures and happenings our beloved cast of characters must go through in this final book!
Okay, so to be honest with you all, it took me a little bit to get back into this story. However, I think the problem was me, not the book. I just couldn't fully remember who everyone was for a little bit and I have read well over 100 books since reading books 1 and 2 a year ago. Once I finally started remembering though, I found myself fully engrossed and loving the story once again. The pages just started to fly by and I never wanted to put it down.
The characters are just as great as ever. They have definitely grown over the course of the series. I think my favorites have to be Grave, Lachance, and Coe. Though really it is hard to pick. All of them were pretty well written.
And really, I just loved the whole premise behind the trilogy. As you may recall, it is an alternate history story. America lost the Revolutionary War and the British Empire is in charge. This is something that most of us have probably never really thought about, but this book really makes you wonder what it would have been like if we did lose. Would we fight back like our friends in this story have been? Or would we have accepted our fate? I doubt we would have had alchemy and the technology they have, but it still makes you wonder.
I am sad to see this series end, but I am glad I got to know this fabulous cast of characters!
