In London’s Pimlico neighborhood lies a tenement described in architectural guides as “a building of no interest whatsoever.” But the residents of Corduroy Mansions—including a literary agent, a wine merchant, a thoroughly unpleasant member of Parliament, and a vegetarian dog—are a rather fascinating lot.

I thought this book was a random walk through the characters lives. I usually enjoy Smith's work but, I am not motivated to explore anymore of the series.

There was little character development. Too many things happened too early in the book. The story is a bit sappy.

The narrator sounded more appropriate for 14 year olds rather than the twenty somethings the characters were supposed do to be.

Sam is banished to Hel, the bond with her angel, Gregory, broken. Six Elven kingdoms are battling for supremacy, and she's broken and injured in the middle of the most hostile one. Shooting the top off a royal throne, committing fraud in the completion of a contract, and threatening a high lord hasn't endeared her to the elves, either. If she wants to free the enslaved humans they hold, she'll need to find a way to help unite their kingdoms. But elves aren't the only problem facing Sam.

This book rocked. I enjoyed how Samantha reached her full potential by exercising self-determination. The story was a continuation of the pervious book and is not a good stand alone, however, it is a quick and entertaining listen. The narration is very good. There are very long pauses between chapters. It sometimes appear like the recording stopped, almost a commercial break. I highly recommend this book and the series to others.
