The story:

Can three women stop the destruction of the Tower Bridge? 

Eliza, Miriam, and Jillian are friends by fate, employment, and society. In the London of 1894, they receive a directive from their mysterious boss to investigate, and stop, the Countess Wilmont’s plot to destroy the newly erected Tower Bridge. 

Delving into a secret world of masterful training in martial arts, curious new technologies and weaponry, the women are armed and very dangerous. 

Their investigation reveals a terrible truth about two of their husbands, and along the way they meet three men who will change their world…and show them that gentlemen aren’t always what they seem

The view of a book addict:

This book is well written and you really get the time to get to know the characters. The story is told from the viewpoint of a lot of characters, most of the time I find this confusing but because all the characters already know each other, or get to know each other it isn’t confusing at all.
I love the women in this book, they are strong and don’t depend on any man. And that’s not something you expect from a book set in Victorian London. You can find a lot of steampunk elements in the book and I love that. The book is full of exciting things and romantic encounters. I found it very hard to put this book down!  This would be a good book to start a whole series about these characters with.

The verdict of a book addict:

If you’re into steampunk, Victorian London and strong women this is your book! If work and life weren’t in the way I would have finished this book in one sit! I will definitly recommend this book to everyone I know!
