Read3r’z Re-Vu Read Along Special
Collective Rate: 5 stars
Special Thanks to Harper Collins YA Publishers for the ARCs!!!
Suspenseful and an exceptional novel with all the right elements including demons, secret histories/society, love triangles, balls & dances, historical references as well as clever character dialogues of the Regency period which makes the voices of the characters authentic. These are all interwoven by brilliant storytelling with considerable historical research. Lady Helen was a pleasure to read and unputdownable. The author’s feminist voice and perspective also shines through at obvious parts, with stereotyped male characters such as Helen’s uncle and Benchley. The plot keeps you constantly guessing what Helen is and what choice will she make next?! A great read.
A very well deserved 5 stars for this one!!! I had the privilege of receiving this as an ARC which followed with the pleasure of doing a read along when members of my Read3r’z Re-Vu.. A lot of research and thought had gone into writing this book, setting is historically accurate and after very careful world building in the beginning, this epic tale was simply “unputdownable” twists, turns – you develop your own theories only to be shutdown in the next chapter.. There were times when my feminist streak would take over and I want to talk to some of the misogynist characters with my fist!!! Parts best read during daylight hours.. I am really looking forward to the next instalment.. great read!!
This book left me speechless! The court intrigue and politics from the era of kings and queens have always fascinated me but this book has a magical edge that completely hooked me in. It was the first time I’d had a book that in one chapter had me baffled at who the culprit was. Amazing! And I would like to give thanks to Harper Collins Publishers for the chance to read this advanced copy
