Book 3 in the Magnificent Devices series!
An air voyage to remember turns into a disaster no one may survive. With her orphaned charges, Lady Claire Trevelyan joins the Earl of Dunsmuir’s family on an airship voyage to the Americas. If she can stay out of Lord James Selwyn’s way until her eighteenth birthday, she will be of age and cannot be forced into marriage. What she doesn’t know is that Lord James is in the Americas, too, with Andrew Malvern closing in on him - and the wonderful device he stole. But when a storm cripples the airship and air pirates swoop in like carrion birds, Claire and the children must live by their wits to make their way across a harsh landscape. Will Andrew ever see her again and right the wrong he believes he has done? Will Lord James succeed in his monumental thievery? And how exactly does Rosie the chicken evade the soup pot?
Tighten your goggles, pull on your gloves, and prepare yourself for stratagems and strangeness in the third book in the series, Magnificent Devices!

Melodramatic Misadventure Marred by TX Accent
I didn't read the print edition. The audio was well done in general. The narrator is pleasant and a good story teller. I beg the producers to edit any further ones more carefully. There were several mispronunciations in all the books. So jarring in what was otherwise so pleasant and compelling. Please, reinvest in editing/proofing/quality control. Please.
Probably, I confess I want to see what happens. Fun stories and characters. But again, a few jarring errors in usage. Please, get a good editor for the next one and (and listen to her).
Mostly. Occasionally I didn't know who was talking at first and Sir James's voice was a bit inconsistent. Overall I love her style and pace and delivery of dialog.
This series is fun and enjoyable and I definitely wanted to see what would happen next. I binge-listened the whole series so far, 3 books, in as many days. I have a real editor's brain. The blips that jar me probably wouldn't bother 95% of readers, so take my concerns about those things in that context. If book four were already available, I would listen to it right away. If/when it comes out I probably will listen to it. However, if the QC on that is not better, I will probably stop there.
