Summary

The Steamship Chronicles began with Secrets, but Samantha Crill and Nathaniel Bowden have many more adventures ahead of them as they cross the Atlantic on a modified steamship. Threats is the second book in the series and is approximately 54,000 words long. 
Is Luck a Miracle or a Curse? 
 
Luck alone has kept Sam undiscovered so far. She dreads the moment the crew learns their miracle and curse have a human face, but it’s Nat’s reaction she fears the most. When her Natural talents are revealed, all the ways she’s used her far-from-human abilities to keep the engine running may count for nothing. 
 
Obsessed with the steamship's engine, Nat’s new position as the engineer’s apprentice is a dream come true even when a fierce storm tests the limits of his new skills. He basks in the praise of the engineer and crew once they're safe again, but their cheers soon turn to curses when Nat realizes the nearest island on the charts is nothing but a sandbar. With food and water running low, how is he going to keep Sam fed?
