I was slightly disappointed in this book. It was still a good book; in fairness. I would have included the sisters more in the story and Lucy who ch..Show More »armed us all in the first book, was relegated to a few references in this book. What I loved about the first book and missed in the second book was the relationship between the sisters. Good but not great.
I loved this! Lady Clara was my favorite character in the previous book in this great series. I'm so glad she got her own story
Clara is on..Show More »e of my top female characters ever! I love that she puts up with nothing. The beginning of the book relates her first meeting with "Raven" and it's memorable. She reads books when it's not considered proper for women. She drives her own carriage. She's an amazingly "modern" woman for her time. And then she runs into Raven again (of course) and it's a very fun adventure. Oliver, aka Raven, is also one of my favorite characters. Their banter makes the book. Both characters are intelligent and that contributes to a great story.
The writing is phenomenal. The dialogue is a riot. I found myself laughing out loud and surprising my husband since I was listening with headphones and he had no idea what was going on.
Kate Reading does another perfect job with the narration.This book was well worth the wait.
