Book 8 in the Magnificent Devices steampunk series! How much will have to one sacrifice for the sake of friendship? Lady Claire Trevelyan has had to take care of betrayal before, in small ways and large. But none is somewhat so painful as the belief that Gloria Meriwether-Astor had deserted her and her friends and left them to die under the waters of Venice. When she learns that Gloria has inexplicably vanished, she has no choice but to follow her heart and attempt to find the missing heiress. But the decisions of the heart do not sit down well with the gentlemen in her life, who had each reason to imagine she planned to settle down at last—and all of sudden Claire finds herself without a career, a fiancé, or the confidence in her own abilities that has carried her this far. Captain Ian Hollys is suffering from the megrims and cannot seem to get well from his dreadful experience as a prisoner. Alice’s dream of captaining her own ship in England is scuttled. Tigg is struggling with a revelation that has turned his life upside down—and may result in a betrayal more harrowing than any the flock has yet seen. Will the bond of friendship that has brought Claire and the flock together be the very thing that separates them for good? Or will love tip the balance and prove that what in reality defines a gentleman of means is none other than a lady of resources? “Adina is a literary master in her field.” —BookLoons.com “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 contemporary in urban fantasy from a social justice perspective
