"The exalted has the utmost respect for Mareaux's top scientists."Clockwork Lies by Dru Pagliassotti. This is the second book in the Clockwork Heart fantasy trilogy. Here is the description:
"The exalted can speak for himself when he's not wearing a mask," Cristof muttered.
"Although it's usually better if he doesn't," Taya retorted. The queen lifted a handkerchief to her lips as if hiding a smile.
Taya, the metal-winged icarus whose investigation helped defeat a plot against Ondinium and its populace, is assisting her exalted husband Cristof Forlore on his fi rst ambassadorial mission. They must learn about Mareaux’s experiments in airship technology and determine whether the ostensibly scientific vehicles might be used for warfare — a taboo for Ondiniums, whose domination of the air is tempered by a deep cultural abhorrence toward airborne weapons after the devastation of the Last War a thousand years ago.
