Set in Brighton, England in 1855, this Steam Punk romance is full of paranormal elements and romance. Lord Kendall Lake, a Knight of the Order of the Round Table, has been sent by his father to check on one Miss Amelie Deland, the niece of the most powerful sorcerer in the Order. Kendall does not know why he has been sent to “hold the hand” of Miss Deland, but that is his order.
As the mission progresses, a deadly plot is uncovered, and the Hadrian family becomes involved. Mystery and intrigue abound.
This is a quick read, since it is a novella. Very enjoyable. The only thing lacking is that it seemed to move a bit too quickly.
3 of 5 stars…left me wishing for more of the story, more detail.
