    The year is 1848. Sensibility is the name of the heroine who lost her father and traveled from Lima to San Francisco to come to her uncle. She never met this man before and is disappointed to learn that nobody is waiting for her. At least not her uncle. A young lady named Jane Algrave saying she is an US-Agent rescues her from a few men that seemingly wanted to rob her. But what could they wanted from her? There is a run to the Californian gold and Sensibility is poor; almost nothing is left beside a few things from her father. But now she is in an adventure with magic, betrayal and danger for her life. Don't know what to say. It was nice but most of the time I didn't like the heroine very much. I understand, she is young and grown up in a really other era but she was in the first two-third of this novel too naive and passive and rather useless. For my taste there was too little steam for a steampunk story and I missed that. Only in the end you could get an idea of steam, the rest of the time there was too much magic and Victorian era behavior and I didn't understand why Sensibility got to like the hero, the stiff Mr Knight.
