Nyssa Glass is a reformed cat burglar turned electrician's apprentice, settled into a life repairing videophones and radio-sets. However, when her past comes calling, she finds herself forced into one last job. No one has entered Professor Dalhart's secluded mansion in almost a decade, at least not and returned to tell the tale. If Nyssa wants to ensure her freedom, she'll brave the booby trapped halls and mechanized maids. Nyssa has skills, but this house has more than its share of secrets. As she steps into the cobwebbed halls lined with dusty mirrors, she has to wonder. Is the House of Mirrors really abandoned?
Five stars. I really enjoyed this book! I haven't read much steampunk before, and Nyssa Glass was a great introduction to the genre. I enjoyed the main character and her creativity in solving problems, as well as her technical and mechanical abilities. The author made it sound quite realistic, obviously having done her homework on some of those devices and their uses. This is a fairly quick read and a hard-to-put-down adventure story. I recommend it!
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
