When a new exile with no memory of his escape from the coastal cities or even his own name seeks shelter in their camp he brings new dangers with him and secrets about the terrible future that awaits all those who have struggled has to live free of the bonds of the empire’s Machineworks.The Inventor’s Secret is the first book of a YA steampunk series set in an alternate nineteenth-century North America where the Revolutionary War never took place and the British Empire has expanded into a global juggernaut propelled by marvelous and horrible machinery.
I'm really excited for this one! I haven't read anything set in the British Industrial empire so that sounds really interesting. Machineworks and the Revolutionary War definitely sounds like a lot of fun. I must say I'm sad to see the old cover go though. I actually liked the old one with the heart better :(
