London late April 1812 a month that had seen violent civil unrest savage battles on the Continent and the rumblings of aggression from the new American nation It was also the month in which ueen Charlotte after a two year hiatus returned to the practice of holding drawing rooms for the presentation of young ladies into high society A battleground of a different kind My goodness this book was delightful It s got everything I like Historical romance Check Magic Check Murder Check That s not to say that something with all of these elements is bound to be good because clearly other books with fantastic elements have gone awfully terribly wrong but this book did it just right And boy was it fun to readYoung Lady Helen is about to make her debut in society presented to the ueen no less when people start disappearing As a young noblewoman people expect her to say Ain t nobody got time for that Helen being the intelligent girl that she is decides to not leave it be and actually figure out wtf is going on Otherwise we wouldn t have a book now would weInterspersed between the normal Regency stuff like balls Almack s and manners and possibilities of ruining one s prospects is the mystery of Helen s parents and the strange things that are happening to her Helen is a great character She behaves as befitting a young lady of her era and despite the book s blurb of will her intelligence and headstrong curiosity wind up leading them into a death trap I did not find her TSTL in the leastThe problem I have with most Regency novels is that the main female character often mistakes bitchiness for independence No such problems with this book Helen knows when to keep her head down to keep uiet when necessary but she is most definitely not without a sense of humor But look at least twenty five frogs on the bodice alone Is it too much to ask for a dress that won t scare the horse Aunt Leonore gave her loud cackle the one that had earned her the title Lady Laugh amongst her friends and Lady Hee Haw amongst her enemies Not this Season my dear It is all military flimflam Bonaparte has a lot to answer for Helen said First Europe and now our fashion She flipped the magazine closed and rested it on her lap You really do have your mother s grim sense of humor There is a wonderful friendship between Helen and her maid The actions between Helen s secret investigation and her normal life as Lady Helen felt natural as are her natural doubts and fears between choosing between the life she was born to and the life she could choose And again contrary to what the book blurb says the romance is barely thereI have read Alyson Goodman s excellent Eon series before and I m so happy to say that she s done it again with this one

Imagine if since the day you were born someone has been telling you that all you are ever meant to be is fashionable womanly a wife and a motherBut then someone unexpected comes into your life and shatters all you thought you knew about the world Suddenly you have options You can still marry if that is your wish and lead a mostly comfortable lifeOr you can fight demonsTo Lady Helen it is not an easy choice and she struggles with it for the entire book Every time she thinks she has figured out her destiny and is about to make the final decision something or someone comes along and messes with her mind againI m not surprised this doesn t have readers It takes a long time to finish I could have sincerely read two books in the time I read this one The pacing is uneven so there are faster passages but the majority are pretty descriptive and so rather slowBut I learned to appreciate them and in conseuence Goodman s writing style It shows that she made a tremendous amount of research before writing this story It s been a long time since I heard of doctors bleeding their patients so they can recover What a huge pot of nonsense However those are the sorts of details that give authenticity to a historical settingThat said I m by no means fan of married love interests in YA fiction Except one must admit that Lord Carlston s situation is an extraordinary one and there is to the story than we were told and made to believeThis was my first Alison Goodman book and ladies and gents I am impressed It is reminiscent of Cassandra Clare s The Infernal Devices so that certainly helped my interest stay alive after all who doesn t wish they had super strength were invited into a secret society and courted by two of the most untouchable men in London Not Lady Helen This is so so much funBlog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin

It s no surprise that this book is terrific every Allison Goodman story includes a world that comes alive in a way few books do Paranormal Regency London shimmers with whirling silk skirts and is bound by careful decorum yet our heroine finds herself defying everything she s been taught when she experiences powerful magic for the first time and is drawn into a web of intrigue and dangerI m surprised to find that I do have a couple of reservations about the book so I need some time to sort out my feelings But all in all this is engrossing and perfectly paced with wonderful period details and convincing characterization As always Review to come Ugh the thought of waiting another year for book two after this one was delayed for so long just kills me
