A Lady Can Never Be Too Curious by Mary Wine
You meet Miss Jannette Aston who is fascinated by all things Illuminist. However, she was raised with a father who can't stand anything that pertains to the Illuminist.
While hanging out with her friend Sophia Stevenson, she decides to head over to the Illuminist place to see if she could get in. Jannette manages to get into the building and learns she could possibly be a Pure Spirit. Pure Spirits are able to handle Deep Earth Crystals, which have a power to operate many things. The Illuminist aren't the only ones who want Jannette abilities, there are the Helikeians who would like her ability for evil.
In the story you learn about Jannette and where her family stems from. She is also dealing with the possibility that her mother could be a traitor to the Illuminist. With all this Jannette has to prove herself to Darius Lawley and learn the ways of the Illuminist.
Overall, I liked the book. It was an interesting read and it peaked my interest to want to read the next book whenever it comes out. I mean I need to know if the Illuminist are able to take down the Helikeians. Plus, I need to know what happens to Sophia since she has gotten wrapped up into a new situation. So, I'm looking forward to see what happens in the Steam Guardians Series. Hopefully, the Illuminist are able to conquer the Helikeians.
