The Ruby Airship

In this action-packed sequel to The Diamond Thief, trapeze-artist Remy has left the circus and her life as a jewel thief behind, but doubts that young detective Thaddeus Rec will ever truly trust her. Torn between her new life and her old, her mind is made up when Yannick, a fellow circus-performer from Remy's past, arrives in London. Remy decides it's time to go with him to France, and rejoin her best friend Claudette and the circus. But Thaddeus is sure that Yannick is up to no good. He's determined to track them down and win Remy back, even if he has to embark on a perilous journey by airship to do so.

Historical Novel Society

"Gosling’s wonderful imagination sparks well-wrought action sequences, and the developing relationship between the spunky Remy and her young Sherlock Holmes-like copper will surely have young readers coming back for more adventures." - Historical Novel Society

February 1, 2015 - YuMin Ye, Columbia Young Adult Fiction Examiner

"Changing identities and a wishy-washy magician make for an action-packed, mysterious, steampunk adventure. Gosling plays on each character’s trust, making the reader question the team of allies. . . .games of cat and mouse speed the story forward, allowing the reader to plunge face-first into the pages, and not coming up for air until the story is finished. Gosling masterfully intertwines themes of family and trust with the circus life at the core." -

Booklist Online - Frances Bradburn

"A bizarre blimplike aircraft, gold-plated robot soldiers, and volcanic mountains of evil intent, as well as romance, intrigue, and the promise of another Remy and Thaddeus adventure, combine to satisfy the youngest steampunk readers." - Booklist Online

Sharon Gosling

Sharon Gosling always wanted to be a writer. She started as an entertainment journalist, writing about television series such as Stargate and Battlestar Galactica. Her first novel was published under a pen name in 2010. Sharon and her husband live in a very small cottage in a very remote village in the north of England, surrounded by sheep-dotted fells. The village has its own vampire, although Sharon hasn’t met it yet. The cat might have, but he seems to have been sworn to secrecy and won’t say a thing.
