Most people avoid the dreaded Whitechapel district. For Honoria Todd, it's the last safe haven. But at what price? Blade is known as the master of the rookeries - no one dares cross him. It's been said he faced down the Echelon's army single-handedly, that ever since being infected by the blood craving he's been quicker, stronger, almost immortal. When Honoria shows up at his door, his tenuous control comes close to snapping. She's so...innocent. He doesn't see her backbone of steel - or that she could be the very salvation he's been seeking.

I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.
I found this to be a good mix of steampunk, paranormal, romance and action. That's really hard to accomplish. Some books one or more of those is lacking, but this was a very nice blend.
I have already purchased the next in this series.
I enjoyed the book, though the constant focus on sex and the coc. Was tiresome. It didn't move the story forward but got tedious,
First time into the steampunk genre but I loved this book. Great story line and the narrater was superb. Will be getting next one asap.
I read anything from YA to Erotic, Paranormal to Historical. I prefer YA on audio.
Book One of the London Steampunk series.
This review is for the narration:
The narrator made this story a six star rating for me. She is fantastic and goes above and beyond. I can't imagine reading the print copy after hearing the audio version.
Blade and Honoria both have to overcome numerous complications throughout the story. They both have pasts that are catching up with them, but together they have a chance to make a future.
I highly recommend this audiobook/story to anyone at all.
This book was just okay to me. I think the author could have explained the creatures a bit clearer, they were confusing at times. The sex was okay, not the best. Not enough dialog for me, more descriptions that actual talking. The Heroine, Honoria was to wimpy for me too. I don't plan on reading the next installment of this series, it was not good enough.
The narrator did a decent job.
Blade and Honor make a hell of a couple, the barbed
banter at the beginning was especially entertaining, a real enjoyable romantic read, with a solid storyline, memorable characters with a sprinkling of steam punk. It was very easy to imagine the world and find yourself part of the unfolding drama. I don't want to give the impression that it is all flowers and roses. it's not, there's a dark undercurrent throughout, which just made it all the more thrilling.
Will definitely be looking for more from BM...
Let me just add it was narrated superbly...
