    A few months ago, I read the prequel "Safe Haven". I enjoyed the story, but wanted more of the younger character, Sam. This story satisfied that desire. Sam, short for Samantha, is now 15 years old. Lily, her older sister, and Lily's husband, decide that Sam is ready to travel to the Continent, where Sam should find a place that is considered safe for people like her. Sam is a "Natural", and "Naturals" are considered very dangerous. In this richly textured, alternative Victorian novel, "Naturals [...]

    You probably know that steampunk is a sort of science fiction/alternate history usually set in Victorian England with advanced technology that's steam-based. In Fisk's imaginings, all these new gadgets are somewhat sentient when near a "natural" — one who can feel their longings and morph them into their true desires. It's a lucky moment when a gadget only wants to be a better version of itself, but when a watch desires to be a mechanical man and the Natural can't stop the compulsion to change [...]

    Imagine being able to manipulate the 'aether' to perform something akin to magic on machines. Imagine that those who can do this are looked upon with fear and contempt. This is Samantha (Sam), a young woman who lives with her sister and her husband on their estate and most times keeps herself locked up in her workshop with her mechanical friends to keep from getting caught changing a machine into something better or something it's not supposed to be. Her sister, Lily, decides for her own good th [...]

    Disclaimer: I feel I can claim I am friends with the author, Margaret McGaffey Fisk. She has been an important member of the writing group I belong to. I don't think that comes into play in this review, first of all because I fell deeply into the world she created, and second because I was saddened to find myself back in reality when I finished this adventure.Safe Haven began this adventure for me. It precludes the series The Steaamship Chronicles of which this, Secrets, is book 1. I had already [...]

    Good series startAs the first book of this series, I thought it set up the stories and characters well while painting a vivid image of the time period. Samantha is an interesting character with unique talents that she hasn't learned to temper enough to keep her out of trouble. Nat is an adventurous young man with dreams of a career. I'm looking forward to seeing where their adventures take them.

    Review first published on My Blog.Samantha (Sam) is a Natural, one who can read the hearts of mechanical devices and use the aether to change them to become closer to their ideal. Unfortunately, most people look at Naturals with distaste even to the point of violence and Sam's sister, Lily, is too sick to be able to keep her hidden even with her husband's help. They have heard of a settlement on the main continent of other Naturals where Sam would be safe and able to be true to herself but when [...]
