Octavia Leander was orphaned when she was a child, and was doomed to grow up living on the streets. Miss Percival saved her from that and taught her how to be a medician. She has incredible powers and is about to go out on her first mission, which is to go and visit the cities that are suffering from the war.
The airship, that she travels on, has a lot of problems that are strange and disturbing. There is murder and Octavia’s own life is threatened. She gets caught up in all kinds of intrigue. The handsome steward may just be a Clockwork Daggers, an infamous group that are the Queen’s assassins and spies. Her cabin mate is also keeping some disturbing secrets. The danger is just getting started, and she finds out that the conspiracy on the ship may just go to the crown too.
