Born in a world where magic is outlawed and brilliant inventors reign supreme, Harlow Morgan has hit the gene pool lottery. With a genius father, a prodigy twin, and a family tree full of inventors, her lineage has marked her for greatness. But for a girl whose adventure lust runs thicker than blood, Harlow's chances of making the Morgan name proud are slim to nonexistent. 

Sick of the constant comparisons to her genius sister, Harlow finds solace as a pilot at her academy, following her gut over her brain. Until one lie to save the Morgan family name lands her in worse trouble than sitting through one of Father's lectures. Forced to choose between the treasure hunting new student, Takashi, and her father's reputation, Harlow slanders Takashi as a Magic, an outlawed sorcerer, getting him ousted from school. Overwhelmed by guilt, she lashes out at her father's cuckoo clock that started the whole dreadful day. But when the antique breaks into pieces, a connection between her father and Takashi's lost treasure bursts forth, burning strange light into her forearms. Now the real Magics want her dead. With her father gone, and believing clues to the rest of the treasure are at the Academy, Harlow's only chance at survival rests in getting Takashi reinstated. In order to find the one man with power to do so in the flying city, they'll have to work together before the deadly Magics find them first.

Okay first of all, the descriptions and details in this first chapter are perfect! I adore Harlow and Brier's names, they're so pretty. Also, it's only chapter one and the characters already have depth, which is amazing.
                              This is the first steampunk book I've read thus far, and I love it.

I hate to be rude but is it ok if I bring up a small mistake?
Hey! I just wanted to tell you that in the first paragraph of your summary, it should be "slim to nonexistENT" I believe. Hope this helps! c:
