The Duchess Adlai: Introductions, Inventions, and the Most Awesome Adventures
When Adlai's older brother, the Duke Cynt, is mysteriously killed on an expedition to the nearest planet, young Adlai finds her world changed overnight. Tasked with leading her realm, the Duchess is immediately submerged into a foreign and utterly fantastic, political arena, where she attempts to solve the mystery of her brother's death. Saddled with an unusual band of advisors: a stoic minister, a mischievous inventor, a cheeky, hoofed, hand-maiden and two snarky Jesin (talking beings who resemble what we on Earth call foxes or basenjis); the Duchess is soon outfitted with a number of new inventions to help her succeed.

Reader on Amazon

Great read for old and young readers, I could not put the book down. The characters are new and exciting, but the Jesin are such a rarity.
I had to laugh out loud at their demeanor. I would recommend this book for its entertainment and novelty.
I am waiting for future books and will certainly buy the next installments.
I will be waiting for them.
I will give this book a 5 star, as it is hard to get a chuckle out of me, and this book does that with the Jesin.

Reader on GoodReads

Reading this book, you get a sense that the author is interested in many things. Within you will find royal political intrique, sci-fi adventure, steampunk inventions, and even a little bit of romance with a quick dash of horror. Oh, and there's some comedic moments with one of the author's creations, the Jesin, a race of know-it-all fox-like creatures who really steal the scene whenever they're around.

To be honest, the book starts a little slow due to all of the world-building the author does to set everything up, which is fine if you like getting into all of those details, but I wanted it to pick up after a while, which it fortunately did and before I knew it I was done and wanted the adventure to continue.

Due to all of the styles in the book, I would say this would be of interest for teens and older, just like most classic fantasy. I'm looking forward to the next volume.
