The young inventor Nicolette Lampton is living her own fairy-tale happy ending. She's free of her horrible stepfamily, running a successful business, and is uninterested&nbspin marrying the&nbsphandsome prince, Fin.&nbspInstead, she, Fin, and their friend&nbspCaro venture to the lush land&nbspof Faerie, where they seek to put an end to the bloody war their kingdom is waging. Mechanical armies and dark magic&nbspawait them&nbspas they uncover devastating secrets about the past and&nbspfight for a real, lasting happily-ever-after for two troubled countries-and for themselves.
&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Smart and unconventional, this novel will appeal to readers of romance and adventure alike.
Betsy Cornwell is the author of  Tides and Mechanica.  She graduated from Smith College and was a columnist and editor at Teen Ink before receiving an MFA in creative writing from Notre Dame, where she also taught fiction. After grad school, she ran away to Ireland to live with the fairies.

Editorial Reviews

? As clever as the heroine's invented boot polishers and sewing machines, as appealing as the dresses designed by her coal-powered automaton horse." - Kirkus, starred review "Fans of the first book will enjoy the more deeply developed characters in this book, and new readers can begin here easily as there is sufficient backstory provided. Steampunk fans will find much to love here, particularly the regal metal flying horse named Jules that gives the book it's most heartbreakingly reflective moment." - VOYA "This thought-provoking blend of genres deserves a spot in most middle and high school collections." - SLJ "
