19th-century, steampunk, inventions, humor, urban-fantasy, action-adventure, suspense What fun! Our intrepid lady inventor of little social awareness is off to France to rescue her stolen schematics. She finds more trouble than she ever thought possible and learned a lot more about her clockwork man, her uncle, some childhood friends, and how to pick locks without proper tools. There is suspense, adventure, hilarity, and more! I'm glad that this is novella length, or I'd never get to sleep! Don't miss this fun episode of a really well written bit of steampunk!
