Lady Helen 1. The Dark Days Club

(1)
Jane Austen's high society and Cassandra Clare's supernatural underworld collide in the first book in the Lady Helen trilogy, perfect for fans of historical fiction and fantasy.
London, April 1812. Lady Helen Wrexhall is set to make her curtsy to Queen Charlotte and step into polite Regency Society. Unbeknownst to Helen, that step will also take her from the glittering ballroom of Almacks and the bright lights of Vauxhall Gardens into a shadowy world of demonic creatures, missing housemaids and deadly power.
Standing between those two worlds is Lord Carlston, a man of dubious reputation and infuriating manners. He believes Helen is destined to protect humanity, but all he can offer is danger, savagery and the possibility of madness. Not the kind of destiny suitable for a young lady in her first London Season. This delightfully dangerous adventure of self-discovery and difficult choices has all the unnerving dark magic of Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell and the swashbuckling action of The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Absolutely delightful

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.
