You can choose your friends, but you cannot choose your family ... or can you?

Now sixteen, Lizzie and Maggie are educated young ladies who have not been called “the Mopsies” in years … except by their guardian, Lady Claire Trevelyan. With the happy prospect of choosing their own future, the girls can leave their dodgy past behind, and Lizzie can bury her deepest childhood memories where they can do no harm. But is she ready to be separated from Maggie and become the woman she believes she was meant to be? Or will old habits tempt her into defiance—like picking the wrong man’s pocket—and plunge her into disaster?

But sometimes disaster leads to dreams coming true—dreams of family and a place in the world. Lizzie must decide whether her true family is the one she was born to … or the one she chose long ago when the Lady of Devices steamed into their lives …

Reviews:Paul on Fangs for the Fantasy wrote:

“This story is an excellent introduction into a new chapter in the Magnificent Devices series, showing the world can continue even with Lady Claire taking a back seat. This makes me immensely happy because it means one of my favourite steampunk series now has nearly infinite scope for continuation and expansion. May the series continue going from strength to strength!”
