Meet the Author

Award-winning author Shelley Adina wrote her first teen novel when she was 13. It was rejected by the literary publisher to whom she sent it, but he did say she knew how to tell a story. That was enough to keep her going through the rest of her adolescence, a career, a move to another country, a B.A. in Literature, an M.F.A. in Writing Popular Fiction, and countless manuscript pages. Between books, Shelley loves traveling, playing the piano and Celtic harp, making period costumes, and spoiling her flock of rescued chickens.

    More steam in your punk

    I recommend Adina as a substitute while awaiting a new Gail Carriger novel. Adina could be better at explaining the physics, mechanics, and chemistry of some of the devices, which would be both more informative and convincing. I like the "steam" part of steampunk as much as the plotline. In addition, I feel a bit cheated to have to buy 3 short novels when they really could have been fitted into a single purchase. Nonetheless, these novels read well and are fast-paced.

    Fun and Exciting!

    This second book in the hilariously fun and exciting Her Devices Steampunk series picks up where the first left off. Claire is still working to make her place in the world, believing as all women of the 19th century, she must find a husband. Pressure from her mother and two suitors after her heart, Claire is questioning her ambitions, her loyalties and the work she has come to love. Reunited with the band of urchins, their scenes bring laughter and joy into the story. Shelley Adina has recreated a Victorian world with care, adding a sense of wonder at the scientific advancements as seen through Claire’s eyes. This book left me eager to discover the next adventures faced by Claire and her companions in the next book of this brilliant story.

    I was provided a copy of the book by BTS eMag for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review – all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    I really enjoyed the second book in the series. I loved how we get to see more into how the actual devices work and the physics behind steampunk devises that are mostly overlooked in other novels. The mechanics is not just a piece of setting but part of the story, which I really liked. A story that is put into a steampunk world that could just as easily be told in any other setting isn't what I really consider to be true steampunk. This series is a true steampunk series!

    Great Read

    This second book in the "Device" series was as excellent continuation to the original. If you like steampunk and I've found that I do it is a great read.
