Book 1 of the The Gunpowder Chronicles, an Opium War steampunk series

In 1842, the gunpowder might of China's Qing Dynasty fell to Britain's steam engines. Furious, the Emperor ordered the death of his engineers, eliminating China's best chance of fighting back.

Since her father's execution eight years ago, Jin Soling has kept her family from falling apart. She is dragged back into the schemes of the imperial court when the Crown Prince launches a secret mission to re-build the empire's forces and expel the British invaders. Now Soling must track down the rebel alchemist who holds the key to powering the imperial fleet. And her only ally is a man she's just met--the engineer with a mysterious past who was once meant to be her husband...
