Summary

Superstitious sailors, demanding machinery, and a delicate balance between the truth and what is right make this an entertaining, thought-provoking alternate history Victorian steampunk adventure for ages 14 and up. 
The box set contains Secrets, Threats, and Gifts (books 1-3 of The Steamship Chronicles). 
Samantha Crill can read the dreams of mechanical devices and tap into aether to make those dreams come true. She seeks a place where her talent is not feared, but her abilities tear apart the careful plans to bring her to safety. Instead, she hides aboard an old sailing ship converted to steam. 
Nathaniel Bowden, a young noble turned cabin boy, wants to captain his own steamship someday. He tries to prove himself to the rest of the crew, but his best efforts go awry especially once he has a secret to keep that’s not his own. 
Together, they offer a grand Victorian steampunk adventure that begins in England and carries them across the dangerous Atlantic Ocean into southern waters.

    After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. 
     
    Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.  
     
    Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. 
     
    Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.
