Publisher's Summary

Will a daring rescue put a wedding and a future at risk? Lady Claire Trevelyan and renowned scientist Andrew Malvern are looking forward to domestic felicity in London when they are surprised by an unexpected visitor. A desperate and fugitive Alice Chalmers seeks their help - her ship has been seized in the Duchy of Venice and worse, her navigator Jake has been thrown into the dreaded underwater prison from which no one ever escapes. Even the innocent. Lady Claire is about to embark on her career in Munich at the Zeppelin Airship Works. The Mopsies are beginning their final year at school. Andrew begins to despair of his fiancée ever choosing a wedding gown. But when help is denied from official quarters, the close bonds of friendship and shared adventure trump all these considerations with an urgency that cannot be ignored.
But there is a brooding evil waiting for them in Venice, an evil that would just as soon put an end to the flock's interference once and for all. With an innocent friend's unexpected return and a pair of secret agents who would prefer that women not become involved, the situation clearly calls for the inner resources of a lady of integrity.

Fabulous Series!

Shelley Adina creates characters that I can fall in love with. I love watching the Mopsies and the whole gang growing up. In this book, the city of Venice was an amazing feat, how it turns on gears every day, to protect itself from enemies, and the evil ways in which the leaders of the city get their laborers to toil below the water. Ingenious! And Fiona Hardingham is undeniable a major character herself, giving everyone the perfect, propelling me to the next scene. This series is best if read from the beginning.

Awesome book with some scary ideas!

A mad dash of adventure through steampunk society with great characters, fabulous storylines, and... Some very lovely chickens! A great read, and a cool idea for how Venetian society could've been changed should one of Leonardo da Vinci's strangest ideas have been put into place - with added underwater convicts!
