Champagne Charlie and the Amazing Gladys by B.G. Hilton

 Charlie is looking for who killed the steam cab driver.  Gladys is looking for her partner in a magic show. (Women are not allowed to do magic by themselves.  She and Charley team up; they'll help each other.

Library Thing and Odyssey Books let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published so you can grab a copy now.

I like steampunk novels.  They make wonderful inventions.  However this story is a cross between steampunk and science fiction.  That doesn't make it bad, it just makes your mind stretch further...

There are other creatures living in space.  The animals are human sized and they intend to take over the earth and wipe the humans out.  However the humans are aware they are there and one crazy professor intends to take the moon out by explosives.  And Gladys and Charlie end up in the middle of this.

Will they find the answers they are looking for?  How can they stop the destruction planned?

There is a lot going on and it keeps your attention.  I'm glad we don't have those monsters here...
