Published by: Scholastic

It's 1888, and sixteen-year-old Verity Newton lands a job in New York as a governess to a wealthy leading family--but she quickly learns that the family has big secrets. Magisters have always ruled the colonies, but now an underground society of mechanics and engineers are developing non-magical sources of power via steam engines that they hope will help them gain freedom from British rule. The family Verity works for is magister--but it seems like the children's young guardian uncle is sympathetic to the rebel cause. As Verity falls for a charming rebel inventor and agrees to become a spy, she also becomes more and more enmeshed in the magister family's life. She soon realizes she's uniquely positioned to advance the cause--but to do so, she'll have to reveal her own dangerous secret. (Summary from Goodreads)

Are you kidding! Steampunk, spying...I'm in, I'm in, I'm in!!! Plus I got an ARC while at ALAMW15 and cannot wait to dive into it!! I've been saving it as my reward for finishing the school-year. Ugh! But, YAY!! :)

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. This sounds right up my alley! Didn't know about it though, so thanks for the heads up. Now I, too, am eagerly anticipating this one. Great pick and happy reading!

  2. I have an ARC of this one and I swear it's burning a hole in my Kindle because I want to read it so badly! I'm trying to hold off until closer to the time, but it's hard. Hope we both love it as much as we seem to think we will!
