Publisher Description

A lady of resources has the power to change the world—if she can stay alive long enough to do it.


Lady Claire Trevelyan had been looking forward to glittering balls, congenial society, and relief from pursuit during her stay with Lord and Lady Dunsmuir in the Canadas. Though being pursued by a handsome airship captain is rather satisfying, especially when it appears Andrew Malvern is becoming distracted by a certain blond mechanic.


But a shot fired in the night puts an end to such diversions, and instead plunges her and her orphaned band of children into a fight for their very survival. Between secret conversations at the highest levels of society and skullduggery in the diamond mines, Claire must discover who is behind the attempts on her friends’ lives—before her mother is compelled to make funeral arrangements yet again.


“I have a big grin on my face which is my Magnificent Devices grin—it’s impossible not to smile your way through this book. It’s such swashbucklingly good fun. The tone has that wonderful lightness of humour and joy that keeps up in even the direst of situations. At the same time it wonderfully maintains the sense of time and place—the Victorian feel, the language, the class, the clothing, the attitudes are all extremely vivid, carefully maintained and, at times, gloriously lampooned.” —Fangs for the Fantasy, on Brilliant Devices



Brilliant Devices is the fourth novel in the Magnificent Devices steampunk series, with books 1-4 forming a quartet. No strong language, just a very proper kiss or two and a satisfying solution. If you like books by Gail Carriger, Lindsay Buroker, or Emma Jane Holloway, you’re in the right place. Enjoy!

So much amazing

This is an amazing series. I look forward to further pieces from this author. The ending of the quad actually brought me to tears, and I really want to know what will be coming for the many characters presented throughout the series.

dogs see for me ,

Another fun, page turner

Once again, just open to page one and you might find yourself staying up till all hours, reading.
The ideas in these titles are being immitated.
It would be fun to learn what happens.to the two little girls, but I would not want to lose connection with the rest.
Thanks again for a delightful read.
