When a crippled young lord rescues a girl falling from a tree, it reveals a secret about himself and his mother’s side of the family that could put him at the center of a war with beings he thought only existed in fairytales.
Tristan Gareth Smyth lived his entire life stuck at home at Waverly Park and left behind while his Grandfather makes trips to London, all because of his blasted wheelchair.
Then an American heiress falls in his lap, literally, and he must find a way to keep her at a distance to protect not only his secret, but everyone around him from an assassin sent to kill him.

What a cliffhanger!!!! This book definitely keeps you wanting more, I can’t wait to read this second book. I totally forgot that I was reading a YA book. I know that it is geared towards the older teen so that might be why. Gareth is a cranky, ill mannered pain in the butt. He is mysteriously disabled, not one doctor can figured out why and it makes his disposition something less than desirable. Being a really cranky person myself, I felt a kinship with Gareth. I really liked the way that the whole story was set up and how Gareth and “the heiress” meet. It’s a cute relationship to witness developing and I like how much it took Gareth by surprise that some one actually likes him besides his younger aunt.
This story is a really cool mix of steampunk, fantasy, paranormal and romance. One could say it’s very whimsical. I love the new steampunk trend and I hope it stays. It’s my favorite genre besides paranormal. This book has it all!
