For years, the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences has enjoyed the favor of Her Majesty the Queen. But even the oldest loyalties can turn in a momentâ€¦
Having narrowly escaped the electrifying machinations of Thomas Edison, Books and Braun are looking forward to a relaxing and possibly romantic voyage home. But when Braunâ€™s emergency signal goes off, all thoughts of recreation vanish. Braunâ€™s street-wise team of child informants, the Ministry Seven, is in grave peril, and Books and Braun must return to England immediately.
But when the intrepid agents finally arrive in London, the situation is even more dire than they imagined. The Ministry has been disavowed, and the Department of Imperial Inconveniences has been called in to decommission its agents in a most deadly fashion. The plan reeks of the Maestroâ€™s dastardly scheming. Only, this time, he has a dangerous new allyâ€”a duplicitous doctor whose pernicious poisons have infected the highest levels of society, reaching even the Queen herself…
And here is what the reviews so far have been…
…a fun, quick paced steampunk action story filled with quick wit, and dastardly bad guys who are simply no match for the brilliance of Books and Braun.

In this latest installment we finally learn more about Wellyâ€™s and itâ€™s quite the doozy. Itâ€™s great to finally see him drop down his guard and let the reader and Eliza in. I mean seriously, their romance is so adorkable, and I love when they get into heated conversations because both are so stubborn and awkward that it makes you laugh. Eliza continues to amuse me in every book, and she always gives the reader lines to chuckle over.
