Dying to Read (89)- REBEL MECHANICS by Shanna Swendson


Hey y’all thanks for stopping by to see my Dying to Read post and of course as always I have to give credit to the lovely Jill over at Breaking the Spine for the Waiting on Wednesday Meme!

I love alternate histories so I can't wait to get my hands on this!

Title: REBEL MECHANICS
Author: Shanna Swendson 
Release Date: July 14, 2015 
Hardcover: 320 pages
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
ISBN: 978-0374300098
A sixteen-year-old governess becomes a spy in this alternative U.S. history where the British control with magic and the colonists rebel by inventing.

It’s 1888, and sixteen-year-old Verity Newton lands a job in New York as a governess to a wealthy leading family—but she quickly learns that the family has big secrets. Magisters have always ruled the colonies, but now an underground society of mechanics and engineers are developing non-magical sources of power via steam engines that they hope will help them gain freedom from British rule. The family Verity works for is magister—but it seems like the children's young guardian uncle is sympathetic to the rebel cause. As Verity falls for a charming rebel inventor and agrees to become a spy, she also becomes more and more enmeshed in the magister family’s life. She soon realizes she’s uniquely positioned to advance the cause—but to do so, she’ll have to reveal her own dangerous secret.



So what do you think? Will you be adding this to your pile? What are you dying to read this week?
