The Brass Queen
Constance Haltwhistle is in control of land, animals, and servants. The only thing she doesn’t have is a husband and, unfortunately, she’s in need of one. So, she does the only thing a proper lady would do; throw a debutante ball, but it all goes wrong when the armored exo-suits she designed kidnaps one of her closest friends and her two colleagues. In order to rescue them, Constance must collaborate with J.F, an American cowboy, with a mission of his own. Of course, rescuing three missing scientists is a lot easier said than done, not to mention the invisible assassins and a prince bent on her death.
Constance is not supposed to be a delegate flower; unfortunately, her tough exterior makes her arrogant and unlikeable. I have no idea why anyone puts up with her and can’t imagine why J.F. falls for her. Each character is different with interesting lives and stories, but lack depth. The way Constance seems to thwart every attempt of death is amusing, even if it’s mostly chance and not entirely believable at times.
