Ever After (Hollows Book 11) by Kim Harrison

The demonic realm, the ever-after, is shrinking and if it disappears, so does magic.  And it happens that it is witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan's fault.

After causing a rip in the ley line a chain of events was set off that could cause a world apocalypse. Rachel must find a way to save the people she cares about, keep the balance between the human and demon worlds, and oh, and if she fails, her life is forfeit.

SF Genre: Steampunk

The progression of Steampunk from fringe subgenre to mainstream has taken a few decades.  You could say it has taken a little over a century if you want to throw in H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, and we really should.  While those two authors are often relegated to the “classics” section of the library, their incorporation of the bizarre, anachronistic engineering, and influence from the possibilities of science put many of their stories clearly in the Steampunk category.
