London, April 1812. On the eve of eighteen-year-old Lady Helen Wrexhall's presentation to the queen, one of her family's housemaids disappears-and Helen is drawn into the shadows of Regency London. There, she meets Lord Carlston, one of the few who can stop the perpetrators: a cabal of demons infiltrating every level of society.

Absolutely delightful

This was an absolutely delightful novel! Rich in detail and historical accuracy, superb writing and likeable characters. I enjoyed this novel very much, in part because of our heroine Lady Helen.

Rich in detail and historical accuracy, superb writing and likeable characters. I enjoyed this novel very much, in part because of our heroine Lady Helen. She behaves as a young lady in that era is supposed to while she's s also not without humor, wit and cleverness. Furthermore, there is an awesome female friendship between Helen and her maid Darby. As stated above, the book is rich in detail and historical accuracy (well, as accurate as it can be). Whilst reading you feel like you're in the Regency era; in the Author's Note you can read how thorough Alison Goodman researched for this novel, it's astounding. It also didn't feel like info-dumping at all but at times some things she mentions were not necessary to really know, those bits felt like the author wanted to prove how meticulous her researches were. The romance in this book is very slow burn and rather secondary to the plot, no, not even secondary, it's tertiary. But even though the romance is not a major plot point, there is still something akin to a love triangle. Now, it's clear whom Helen prefers, the other one is kind of like the more appropriate choice, the one she is expected to marry. And like I already said, Helen is a character who acts like a lady in the Regency era would, she's been raised with the do's and dont's of society so it is not easy for Helen to decide. But I didn't mind that at all. Alison Goodman's writing is so good, she sucked me completely into the story, I was fully immersed. That said, the book did drag sometimes and be warned that for some people this book could move too slow for their liking. I liked it, though. Thank God, there is no cliffhanger or I wouldn't be able to wait before reading the next book which is, yay!, already out.
