Look Inside

Blackmailed into stealing artifacts from the crown heads of Europe, eccentric aristocrat Constance Haltwhistle and the annoyingly handsome US spy "Liberty" Trusdale team up to execute perfect palace heists while keeping monstrous otherworldy creatures from invading Earth.


“I loved The Brass Queen.” —Genevieve Cogman, author of the Invisible Library series

“Lush, exciting, and endlessly inventive . . .” —Cherie Priest, award-winning author of Boneshaker, on The Brass Queen

The grass was always greener in another dimension.

In a fantastical steam-powered world, eccentric aristocrat and secret arms dealer, Miss Constance Haltwhistle, has been blackmailed into stealing alien artifacts from the crown heads of Europe. Only the shady but annoyingly handsome US spy, “Liberty” Trusdale, can help her execute her perfect palace heists. As Constance creates chaos and mayhem across the Continent, monstrous creatures are plotting an interdimensional invasion of Earth. Will Constance and Trusdale stop bickering long enough to end the war of the worlds before it starts?

If you enjoy stories inspired by HG Wells’s War of the Worlds, you’ll love this gaslamp romp across an alternate 1890s Europe where our bickering heroes may just be the bad guys.


“VERDICT: In the sequel to The Brass Queen, the vivid worldbuilding and delightful characters create an epic setting. Chatsworth pushes the dialogue and banter to extremes, leading to a fast-paced and humorous steampunk tale.” Library Journal

“Chatsworth concocts a delightful blend of magic and science, creating a world filled with parallel dimensions and alien invasions . . . Series fans and new readers alike will tear through this action-packed, twist-filled romp.” Publishers Weekly

“A fun, action-packed second installment that will appeal to fans of Gail Carriger, Marie Brennan, or Patricia C. Wrede.” Booklist
