Publisher's Summary

Escaped lunatics, lost children, vengeful lords, and love. Really, the situation is becoming quite impossible. Seventeen-year-old Lady Claire Trevelyan, left alone after the Arabian bubble financial disaster claims home and family, now leads the cleverest gang in the London underworld. Between outwitting a rival gang, inventing a device that will net her and her scientist employer worldwide fame, and keeping her mother from marrying her off, she can almost forget that a powerful lord wants to get closer… and if he succeeds, can destroy it all with a single word…

Great Story, Halting Narration

Any additional comments?

The narrator has an odd speaking cadence and frequently pauses awkwardly, cutting sentences in half. It felt a bit like a bad William Shatner impression.

It only gets better!

The series continues to enfold you into 19th century Britain, where industry and invention have become the all-consuming goal. Our heroine has found herself battling between two factions; one is societal norms and one being her life’s work. The narrator continues to be amazing, and has never missed a character yet. The story line continues to improve. Audiable please record the last few books.

Another excellent story fabulously narrated!

I LOVE these books - they are fabulously narrated, with great character and spirit, and really bring the story to life! So much so that I had to listen to the whole thing once started, and now I'm moving straight on to the rest of the series asap! This book was even more full of adventure than the first, with mischievous children, escaping lunatics, mad scientists, snobby bloods... A fantastic array of characters, events and - of course! - devices!
I cannot recommend these books enough to all adventure lovers, whatever your age

Short but Sweet

This, the second in the Magnificent Devices series has the same good and bad points as the first (Lady of Devices).

It's well-written with a charming, Austenesque wit but it is far too short and leaves most of the major plot points unresolved.
