This was another 5 Star effort in the exceptional Victorian Rebels series but instead of the horrific starts this one has a bit more dramatic than horrific beginning.
The thing about this one is that it kind of kept me stressed out from the start since you never knew when it was all going to fall apart, in the same vein everything seemed to get decided seemingly within a few pages and I was a wee bit disappointed.
We are also left with a bit of a teaser about The Rook that looks to play a part in the next book and take us back to some of the characters in book 1 (loving that idea) but there are hints of another couple also which leaves me confused trying to guess where the next book will go.
Gavin and Sam (she of many names) are a great match in wit and temperament and a hard fought love match but her "secret" would have been enough to give this some drama but the added revenge almost seemed overdone but it did allow for some serious stressful and revealing moments.
Bottom Line: It was a bit more fun that some of the other books which was nice for a change but I fear Kerrigan Byrne set the bar VERY high with the first 2 books in this series but this one is exceptional in a bit of a different light. I do wish to complain about all the hints and possibilities that were thrown out in the last few pages about other future books. I hope I don't have to wait a year to read the next one. At the end of the day I could hardly put it down and 5 stars indeed for a very entertaining novel.
