her orphaned charges, Lady Claire Trevelyan joins the Earl of
Dunsmuir’s family on an airship voyage to the Americas. If she can stay

on him—and the wonderful device he stole. But when a storm cripples the
airship and air pirates swoop in like carrion birds, Claire and the
children must live by their wits to make their way across a harsh
landscape. Will Andrew ever see her again and right the wrong he
believes he has done? Will Lord James succeed in his monumental
thievery? And how exactly does Rosie the chicken evade the soup pot?

and strangeness in the third book in the series, Magnificent Devices! From Goodreads.
I am really enjoying this Steampunk series by Shelley Adina. Claire is a strong heroine but she still needs all the help she can get from both old and new friends. I really like the Mopsies - read the book to find out who they are :-)
