London society holds many expectations for gentlewoman Aldora Fiske. Despite her great proficiency at the great game of the social season, Ms. Fiske chafes at the restrictions her social position holds for her. It's only far from the prying eyes and wagging tongues of London parlors that she can truly live the life that she craves.
She’ll find adventure with pirates high above the London streets, in the far off jungles of Mexico, and in the heart of the aging Ottoman Empire.
It's a delicate tightrope she walks, between dilettante and adventuress, with one wrong step leading to utter ruin in the eyes of her elite peers. Still, when the alternative is an existence more stifling than any corset, the adventurous young woman will risk it all for one more thrill.
Obligation and injustice collide in this second of the Galvanic Century steampunk series of Edwardian fiction novels.
