Venturess By Betsy Cornwell Cover Image
Not Available


The young inventor Nicolette Lampton is living her own fairy-tale happy ending. She's free of her horrible stepfamily, running a successful business, and is uninterested in marrying the handsome prince, Fin. Instead, she, Fin, and their friend Caro venture to the lush land of Faerie, where they seek to put an end to the bloody war their kingdom is waging. Mechanical armies and dark magic await them as they uncover devastating secrets about the past and fight for a real, lasting happily-ever-after for two troubled countries—and for themselves.
          Smart and unconventional, this novel will appeal to readers of romance and adventure alike.

Praise For…

?  " As clever as the heroine's invented boot polishers and sewing machines, as appealing as the dresses designed by her coal-powered automaton horse." — Kirkus, starred review   "Fans of the first book will enjoy the more deeply developed characters in this book, and new readers can begin here easily as there is sufficient backstory provided. Steampunk fans will find much to love here, particularly the regal metal flying horse named Jules that gives the book it’s most heartbreakingly reflective moment." —VOYA   "This thought-provoking blend of genres deserves a spot in most middle and high school collections." — SLJ
