If all the world's a stage, then I am utterly screwn...

In the high-stakes world of the theater, stage fright can seriously crank your career, so apprentice Minx Mellor hides her phobia, studying as a technomancer to create fantastic, steam-powered devices.
But when the mysterious serial killer known as The Peacock targets one of their own, Minx can hide no longer. To save the life of the woman she loves like a mother, she teams up with her sworn enemy and a dashing young director whose powerful magic wakes the nightmares she's kept secret for years.
When disaster strikes, Minx must face the horrors of her past and find the courage to do what she vowed she'd never do again. 

Even if it means risking her life as bait to trap a murderer. 

From the shadows of cobblestoned alleys and the glittering steampunk world of an aristocracy gone mad for theater comes the first book in a brand new young adult fantasy series about love, the power of creativity, and the resiliency of the human spirit.

This is my first young adult novel. It's COMPLETE, and I'm hard at work on the sequel, Claws of Brass, which is currently serializing here on Wattpad as well!
