Enjoy reading about tales within the steampunk universe? Already a fan of Nyssa Glass? If not, this short story might make you into one.
Orphaned cat burglar Nyssa Glass intends to outwit her rotten fate.
“Adopted” by her incarcerated uncle’s gang of thieves, she breaks into homes and picks pockets to repay her family debt and one day buy her freedom from their dark enterprise. Mechanically adept and determined, Nyssa longs to attend Miss Pratchett’s School for Mechanically Minded Maids and make an honest life she can take pride in.
She wasn’t made to steal things. She was made to create and fix them.
However, before she can make her escape, the head of the gang taps her for a new assignment, one her conscience cannot bear. Nyssa is faced with a heartrending decision: sacrifice everything or become the very thing she’s desperate to escape.
A Prequel Short for the Nyssa Glass Steampunk Series.
Loved this little prequel! It tells the story of a much younger Nyssa Glass and the caper that would change her life. It was nice to be able to read about Nyssa, leading up to House of Mirrors. When I got to the end, I wanted more and thankfully there are five more books to keep myself and others entertained.
