Rebel Mechanics: All Is Fair in Love and Revolution
What if British magic kept the American Revolution from ever occurring? It's 1888, in New York, when seventeen-year-old Verity Newton is a governess to a wealthy, and secretive Magister family. Magisters have always ruled the colonies, but now Verity finds herself in the midst of romance and espionage, as a rebel society of mechanics and engineers are developing non-magical sources of power via steam engines that they hope will help free them from British rule. She soon realizes she's uniquely positioned to advance the cause―but to do so, she'll have to reveal her own dangerous secret.
