Excerpt from book:

New York Wildlands, Amherst Province, 1816

1.

Every heartbeat brought the boy closer. Charlotte heard the shallow pulls of his breath, the uneven, heavy pounding of his footfalls. She stayed curled within the hollows of the massive tree’s roots, body perfectly still other than the sweat that beaded on her forehead in the close air. A single drop of moisture trailed along her temple, dripped from her jaw, and disappeared into her bodice.
 

The boy threw another glance over his shoulder. Five more steps, and he’d hit the tripwire. Four. Three. Two. One.
 

He cried out in alarm as his ankle hooked on the taut line stretched between two trees. His yelp cut off when his body slammed into the forest floor, forcing the air from his lungs.
 

Charlotte lunged from her hiding place, muscles shrieking in relief as they snapped out of the tight crouch. Her practiced feet barely touched the ground and she ran with as much silence as the low rustle of her skirts would allow.
 

The boy moaned and started to push himself up on one elbow. He grunted when Charlotte kicked him over onto his back and pinned him against the ground with one foot.
 

His wide eyes fixed on the revolver she had aimed at his chest.
 

“Please,” he whispered.
 

She adjusted her aim—right between his eyes—and shook her head. “I’m not in the habit of granting the requests of strangers.”

Charlotte put more weight onto her foot, and he squirmed.
 

“Who are you?” she asked, and wished her voice were gritty instead of gentle.
 

He didn’t blink; his eyes mirrored the rust-tinged gleam of the breaking dawn.
 

“I don’t know.”
 

“Say again?” She frowned.
 

Fear bloomed in his tawny irises. “I . . . I don’t know.”
 

“You don’t know,” she repeated.
 

He shook his head.
 

She glanced at the tangle of brush from which he’d emerged. “What are you running from?”
 

He frowned, and again said, “I don’t know.”
 

New from Andrea Cremer, the New York Times bestselling author of the Nightshade novels, comes an action-packed alternate-history steampunk adventure.

In this world, sixteen-year-old Charlotte and her fellow refugees have scraped out an existence on the edge of Britain’s industrial empire. Though they live by the skin of their teeth, they have their health (at least when they can find enough food and avoid the Imperial Labor Gatherers) and each other. When a new exile with no memory of his escape  or even his own name seeks shelter in their camp he brings new dangers with him and secrets about the terrible future that awaits all those who have struggled has to live free of the bonds of the empire’s Machineworks.

The Inventor’s Secret is the first book of a YA steampunk series set in an alternate nineteenth-century North America where the Revolutionary War never took place and the British Empire has expanded into a global juggernaut propelled by marvelous and horrible machinery. Perfect for fans of Libba Bray's The Diviners, Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel, ScottWesterfeld's Leviathan and Phillip Reeve's Mortal Instruments.
