The Inventors at No. 8

Grand adventures begin in this captivating, funny new historical fantasy series.

George, the third Lord of Devonshire, has been keeping his moldering household and lack of supervision a secret, but weird and wonderful Ada sees through his deception. Even though George would prefer to stay at home and out of harm’s way, Ada convinces him that she can help him find the Star of Victory–and, just maybe, his sense of bravery.
