The steampunk adventure continues....
An ancient Egyptian artifact is driving Queen Victoria insane, and that's not top of Cara Devon's growing list of problems.
Viscount Nathaniel Lyons is a man of numerous secrets, but there is one in particular that threatens his fledgling relationship with Cara. Stunned by Nate's revelation, and before she can absorb the ramifications of his actions, he is arrested, charged with treason, and imprisoned in the grim Tower of London. He stole something the mad queen wants, and only has days to deliver, before his date with the executioner.
Although sorely tempted, Cara can't let him die on Tower Green, not when their connection means she would share his fate.
Only together can Cara and Nate figure out how to wrestle Hatshepsut's Collar from around the queen's neck, before she plunges Britain into a world war. The search for answers sends Cara to the opulent Winter Palace of St Petersburg and the frozen depths of Siberia, with every step shadowed by an enemy with his own dark plans.

A fantastic book! A. W. Exley has given us a story of lavish adventure, exotic locations, harrowing escapes and sensual passionate love. Narrator Gemma Dawson has taken the story to a higher level of enjoyment by giving life to each character with their own individual voice and personality. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it.
I'm really enjoying this series. I love the enchanted artifact storyline and the characters are bad-good guys. I also like the writers style and word choice. Occasionally, I feel like the romance between Nate and Cara detracts a bit from the forward momentum of the story line, but, overall, it's been enjoyable listening to their exploits. The performance by Gemma Dawson is also quite good and really keeps you engaged. Can't wait to see what they all get up to in the next book!
Lover of books!
I really enjoyed the performance & story! Can't wait to read next one. Lovely read!
