An Alternate History Victorian Steampunk Adventure for readers of all ages.

The Steamship Chronicles continue with the first book of Volume 2.

To protect his family, Henry will change the law itself.

The Natural laws declare anyone with the knack to transform machinery an inhuman criminal regardless of their actions. Henry has railed against this Act of Parliament in private, but finally he has the chance to fight back.

Lily's health has suffered under the constant strain of sheltering a fugitive Natural, and an untimely word would have condemned every person on the estate. Henry had hoped sending his wife's sister to safety on the Continent would bring relief from the threat that has been hanging over the manor and ease his wife's suffering. Instead, disaster struck. Sam is missing with no word beyond vague rumors, and Lily grows ever worse.

If Henry can overturn the law that brands all Naturals as monsters and condemns those who help them, he'll be able to search for Sam openly. He will bring her home and make their family whole again, drawing Lily out of her decline.

He has only to sway his peers in Parliament, a daunting task when his moral appeal fails. Nor does fate keep its hands out of the striving, choosing to send more complications the way of Lily and the manor in his absence.

His wife is dying and her sister is lost. Who better than Henry to take on all of England in their cause?
