Publisher's Summary

Charlie is gone, and Lincoln finds that Lichfield Towers offers no sanctuary. With reminders of her at every turn, and employees threatening to mutiny, he must try to find the murderer who is killing supernaturals on his own. And keep the murderer away from Charlie.

When the strongman from the visiting Barnum and Bailey's circus is murdered, Lincoln suspects a link, but piecing together the clues becomes dangerous and difficult work. He can't afford to be distracted, yet he finds he can't concentrate fully on the task. Even worse, Seth's mother, the incomparable Lady Vickers, has come to stay.

Ashes to Ashes is a bonus novella-length story told entirely from Lincoln's point of view. It is shorter than the rest of the books in the Ministry of Curiosities series.

Short and didn't advance the story

Seemed kind of pointless, this should have been the first chapter or 2 of the next book.

Angry

I'm left feeling angry. It's not a stand alone story, infact the "ending" is just a cliff hanger for the next book. This book clearly exists to fill the plot holes the next book will surely introduce. Those are minor annoyances i would normally overlook. I gave it three stars because of all that and it was priced like it were a full book, not a 4 hour novella.

Crucial to understand Ministry of Curiosities

This novella is 5th in the Ministry of Curiosities series. It gives crucial insight into Lincoln's motives and emotional state following the end of the 4th book (Grave Expectations). It does require that the reader pay attention (for example, don't try watching TV while reading this), or there will be things that the reader will miss. While I initially didn't think I would really like this novella, but it has become a favorite of mine

Lincoln

I very much enjoy the lead male perspective!
So often in many series I tend to wonder what the train of thought in the opposing lead role is, and with a character as closed up as Lincoln I thoroughly enjoyed an inside peek!

Why so short?

This book is about half the length of the others. Nothing really happens much. Disappointed.
