Book 3 of the Magnificent Devices steampunk series.

An air voyage to remember turns into a disaster no one may survive.

With her orphaned charges, Lady Claire Trevelyan joins the Earl of Dunsmuir’s family on an airship voyage to the Americas. If she can stay out of Lord James Selwyn’s way until her eighteenth birthday, she will be of age and cannot be forced into marriage. What she doesn’t know is that Lord James is in the Americas, too, with Andrew Malvern closing in on him—and the wonderful device he stole. But when a storm cripples the airship and air pirates swoop in like carrion birds, Claire and the children must live by their wits to make their way across a harsh landscape. Will Andrew ever see her again and right the wrong he believes he has done? Will Lord James succeed in his monumental thievery? And how exactly does Rosie the chicken evade the soup pot?

Tighten your goggles, pull on your gloves, and prepare yourself for stratagems and strangeness in the third book in the series, Magnificent Devices!

"This is another immensely fun book in 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 latest in urban fantasy from a social justice perspective

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Series Just Gets Better and Better! Airships and pirates and diamonds and kidnapping...this, the fourth book in Shelley Adina's wonderful Magnificent Devices series, is the most exciting yet! Chock full of unexpected twists and turns, Claire and her "flock" must use all the resources and imagination they can muster when sky pirates take over the Airship that they are on, travelling to Edmonton with the Earl of Dunsmuir and his family. The action doesn't stop! I love this series!!!
