by Felicity Banks
Emmeline Muchamore was respectable once. Her sweetheart, Matilda Newry, certainly put a stop to that. But when Emmeline gains magical insight into a disastrous future battle, she weaponises her wild reputation in order to draw trouble and death away from her adopted home, risking everything and everyone she loves in the process. Iron Lights is a steam-powered tale of honour, love, magic, adventure, and mechanical spiders.
