The Lady's Triumph - Just Read Blog Tour and Giveaway



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.

MY REVIEW


What a fantastic story. Usually I see steampunk in the Victorian setting, but by moving it to Regency, there is a whole new world of possibility. Utilizing the technology in the Napoleonic wars added an interesting twist. The characters in this story were just fascinating to me and their abilities. Bravo having women being the heroes of the crown and among the Prince Regent's favorites. This was unlike any Regency I have read. I admit to not reading the two previous books in the series, but that did not ruin my experience. I found I was missing information, but it was supplied in the book. I will need to go back and read them to get the full scope of the story. Can we talk about the characters? Such strong, vibrant, confident women and men. There were evidences of some prejudices against the women at times, but they held their own and had the support of other powerful characters. I find the more I read stories with steampunk themes, the more I love the ingenuity and invention that is the main theme. The story follows several characters, not the back and forth of two characters, but multiple points of view that made the story richer. I received an early copy of this book and this is my honest review.
