Constance Haltwhistle is the heroine of this story, and she’s a delightful breath of fresh air. She is full of spunk and energy that just makes you want to know more about her! Constance is supporting her family estate by selling weapons through her “Brass Queen” moniker. When she meets Trusdale, a spy, she finds herself in a hunt for a dangerous scientist trying to create an invisible army.
I found the characters to be wonderful and the plot to be entertaining. The whole story is a stretch of the imagination making everything feel larger than life and full of fun. The speed of this is pretty fast paced. Once you start the story, you are not going to want to put it down!
