A Steampunk Alternate History set in the Victorian Era with sentient machines only a select few can hear, and for that they're considered monsters.
Gifts is the third book in the series to complete the first volume of The Steamship Chronicles, and there are more adventures still to come.
Savor the Joyful Moments
Sam has never been happier than aboard this merchant ship in the middle of the ocean. Most of the crew accepts her despite knowing about Sam's Natural abilities. They tease and scold as if she were one of their own. She'd do anything to stay, but the captain has made it clear: Come the next port, her voyage is at an end.
Hiding Sam from the crew cost Nat dearly, but he doesn't want her to go. The sailors view her as a good luck charm now, but as soon as something goes wrong, they will turn on the Natural. Transforming Sam into a boy and giving her Nat's share of the profits means she might have a decent chance on shore. As long as she stays in control.
If only they could discover a better plan.
There is also a prequel to The Steamship Chronicles titled Safe Haven, which occurs eight years before Secrets.
