The Golden Spider

A Steampunk Romance

Publisher Description

In a world of steam and gears, of mystery and murder… only a clockwork spider can weave a web strong enough to catch a killer.


Lady Amanda blackmailed her way into a prestigious London medical school...


Not the preferred method of entrance, of course, and quite the scandal – but necessary, for it’s the only way to force Lord Thornton, a professor at the school, to help her perfect her invention: a clockwork spider capable of spinning artificial nerves.


And Thornton is interested… but is he interested in Amanda, or simply the invention that could cure his own debilitating injury? Neither one can trust the other, but both know this: any attraction is a danger, any romance forbidden.


But when a foreign spy steals top-secret technology – and the spider – from Thornton’s laboratory, using it to perform grisly experiments on human subjects, Amanda and her professor must put aside both their differences and their growing attraction to capture the killer terrorizing the streets of old London.


Now, Amanda and Thornton are on the hunt… or being hunted themselves. Traveling from gypsy camps to dirigible factories, to the kraken-infested Thames – they will go wherever they must, and do whatever they can. To find the spy. To stop the killer. To fight the forbidden romance between them…


… and, above all, to solve the mysteries hidden in The Golden Spider.


The first book of USA Today bestselling author Anne Renwick’s Elemental Steampunk World series, The Golden Spider invites you to an alternate past: where mayhem and murder endanger the foggy streets of Victorian London, where secrets and spies hide in a world of gaslamp fantasy, and where matters of the heart are as mysterious – or simple – as clockwork.

Fantastic story

Another fantastic story in the steampunk world I have come to thoroughly enjoy! This brings us with Amanda and Sebastian (Thornton) - the sister of Emily.

I cheered for Amanda throughout the book and I liked how strong, quick and intelligent she was. I also loved the action and suspense of their adventure in creating a device to help others and solving a serial killer’s crimes.

Highly recommend and cannot wait to read the next book in this series

Brilliant!

If you’re apt for science and passionate for romance, you can’t go wrong with any of Anne’s writings. I’ve read her Elemental Steampunk Chronicles out of order, but have to say - it didn’t matter much. They all gush with her ingeniously woven worlds, and are certainly binge worthy!

Woah!!

This story was fantastic!! Amanda a smart, strong willed woman has designed the most interesting contraption to help her broken brother. When the murders pick up after her device goes missing Sebastian who is a queen’s agent as well as a professor pulls her in on the case where it’s her device. This book has it all, London, science, adventure, murder, mystery, clockwork contraptions, and some very hot scenes! 18+
