They say all good things must come to an end.     Forevermore is the last book in Darkest London series.   While I have enjoyed the side characters finding love in the last couple of books, it was great to go back to the trio of sisters and their long lost brother who started it all.  Forevermore was about Sin the brother of Miranda, Daisy and Poppy.  Sin has been made into a Judgement angel.  His first real assignment is to watch over Layla his mentor’s charge.  But, Sin means more to Layla than just a bodyguard.  Sin is her… Read more »

I must confess this book was a second chance read.  I started reading this book earlier this year and I don’t know why but I didn’t finish it.  I saw that there was audiobook and decided to give it another go.  I am glad I did because I ended quite liking this book.  The Falconer was full of action, angst and even some kissing.  It had everything I was looking for in a fantasy story.   The story is about is young Scottish woman named Aileana Kameron set in an alternative history in 1844.  Aileana had witnessed the death of… Read more »

First, I have to say that I am a big fan of Gail Carriger and the world she has created. I was first introduced to this world in Soulless, an adult novel, and liked it so much that I had to start reading about the world of Victorian Paranormal Steampunk through the eyes of a young lady in training. I have to say that I have liked every Finishing School story I have read, and Waistcoats and Weaponry is no exception. The thing I like most about these books is that Soulless and Finishing School books can be read together… Read more »

First off let me say that I enjoyed this book so much better than the first book, Something Strange and Deadly. A Darkness Strange and Lovely takes place three months after the events in Something Strange and Deadly. I think it I liked A Darkness Strange and Lovely because it was full of: hot kisses, zombies and old fashioned Paris balls. Of course, a heroine that scoffs at traditions and hunts zombies in pants, no corset, and kicks butt with magic.     A Darkness Strange and Lovely takes place in late 1800s Paris this time. Eleanor goes there to… Read more »

I made it to the end this time! The first time through I DNF’d before they even reached the Thunder Tiger. At the time there were too many characters and too much of an infodump for me to slog through to the meat of it. I was also trying to read it on a plane and it seems utterly impossible for me to start books on a plane. I just can’t focus and with the depth of attention needed to start this book, I failed. This time, I made it through. I got over the -samas and the hais and… Read more »
