Book 7 in the Magnificent Devices steampunk series! Will a daring rescue put a wedding and a future at risk? Lady Claire Trevelyan and renowned scientist Andrew Malvern are taking a look forward to domestic felicity in London when they're surprised by an unexpected visitor. A desperate and fugitive Alice Chalmers seeks their assist—her ship has been seized in the Duchy of Venice and worse, her navigator Jake has been thrown into the dreaded underwater prison from which no person ever escapes. Even the innocent. Lady Claire is about to embark on her career in Munich at the Zeppelin Airship Works. The Mopsies are beginning their final year at school. Andrew Malvern begins to despair of his fiancée ever choosing a wedding gown … but when assist is denied from official quarters, the close bonds of friendship and shared adventure trump a majority of these considerations with an urgency that can't be ignored. But there's a brooding evil looking ahead to them in Venice … an evil that would just as soon put an end to the flock’s interference once and for all. With an innocent friend’s unexpected return and a pair of secret agents who would prefer that women not turn into involved … the situation clearly calls for the inner resources of a lady of integrity. “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
