Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for The Lady’s Triumph by Shelly Adina & R.E. Scott, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: The Lady’s Triumph
Series: The Regent’s Devices #3
Author: Shelley Adina and R.E. Scott
Publisher: Moonshell Books
Release Date: September 28, 2022
Genre: Regency Steampunk
Only one thing could be worse than Napoleon’s invasion of England… After their daring adventures behind enemy lines in France, Loveday Penhale and Celeste Blanchard cannot settle into everyday life at home. Has the Tinkering Prince forgotten them entirely? What of the prize he promised? Then, with the flourish of a royal messenger’s hand, their lives are changed. Not only have they won the prize, they are to join the Prince’s Own Engineers in London! They must overcome many a stone in the path, however—leave all they love, find a suitable house, and worst of all, cope with a chaperone—before they can take their rightful places among the most intelligent and forward-thinking minds in the kingdom. Their goal? To develop an airborne fleet that will end Napoleon’s dreams of conquering England forever. But the saboteur who has been plaguing their efforts for months has not yet been caught. And along with battling for acceptance among the engineers, tiptoeing closer to falling in love, and receiving invitations to Almack’s, they must discover the traitor’s identity … before the Prince Regent steps forward to command the fleet and finds himself playing right into Napoleon’s hands.
Have you ever started a series on book three? Just me? Yeah, that’s what happened here. For the record I didn’t feel lost at all. No, what I felt was more like regret. Regret that I hadn’t found this series sooner and actually started with book one like normal people do.
This was such an intriguing storyline. In the beginning while I did not feel lost, it felt a little slow moving, and I think that’s because I didn’t have the backstory – my own fault of course. I still found it to be interesting though, and as the story progressed, so did my interest. And the pages started moving faster and faster. The characters were fascinating, as was their world. I wanted to dive in and join them. The authors did such a fantastic job integrating the steampunk aspects that it just felt natural. Real. Again, pulling me even further into the story.
I encourage you, reader friends, to read this series (from the beginning preferably). It’s full of mystery, wonder, a little romance, fun and adventure. Highly recommend! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
