“An age old question: nature vs. science. How far is too far in terms of technology? I loved Adelaide’s struggle. She finds herself pregnant, alone, on the wrong side of power, and in possession of valuable skills that could get her killed. Yet her compassion for the augmented beings she helped create will compel her to risk her life & a life with her child.”
– Stacey Faubion, Goodreads
Pregnant, fugitive scientist in post-steampunk Paris

Paris 1881: the new Naturalist king of France has banned all technology. Adelaide, formerly a high-ranking Scientist, is in hiding from his enforcers at the Hotel-Dieu, a Paris hospital run by nun-nurses with strange powers. She’s driven to use her forbidden scientific skills to help the Augmented veterans even though she faces execution if she’s discovered.
