THE STAR THIEF, by Lindsey Becker

star thief

The story: Honorine is an orphaned housemaid at the Vidalia estate until the night that thieves break in and she escapes their clutches only to find herself swept off on an adventure. She’s rescued by a mysterious being and becomes a traveler on the Carina–a steampunkish airship piloted by the Mapmaker. He’s on a mission to keep the Mordants (living embodiments of the constellations) from being captured by Nautilus Olyphant. Little does Honorine know that in reality, the success of his mission depends upon her, and upon the fact that she too is a Mordant…

 

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Take a look at this if you like fantasy stories with magic, machines, and smart heroines!
