Publisher's Summary

Ten years ago, Perry fled her thrall contract to find sanctuary among the Nighthawks. In that time, she's become a respected woman of the Guard, and she's wanted Garrett Reed for as long as she can remember. But when a new case takes a chillingly familiar turn, Perry finds herself once again in the path of a madman - only this time there's nowhere left to run. Out of their depth and racing against time, Perry and Garrett must learn to trust the desire sparking between them or risk losing themselves forever to the darkness stalking London's streets.

Critic Reviews

"The heady romance and dark suspense keep the pages turning, and a cliffhanger finale sets the stage for book five." ( Publishers Weekly)

Love the steampunk world that was built.

A good addition to the story. I think this book would have been just a tad bit better if it didn't focus so much on hiding ones secrets and focused on how to solve the problem. I was a slightly annoyed with how much Perry focused on her fear of telling Garrett her true feelings, but that was only a small part of the story. My favorite book is still Lynch and Rosa's story. I recommend reading series in order to get the full benefit of the books. I would like to see a book about Burns and the girl who has a clockwork heart (can't remember her name). Narrator is pretty good, although all of the echelon seems to have a smarmy voice, which was a bit annoying. I think she should have reserved that voice for only one character.

Series drives me crazy....

Honestly, why does every character in the series feel like they can solve every problem by hiding it from everyone.

All the couples lie to each other all the time. They hide EVERYTHING from each other. Every single relationship in the series is based on a series of increasingly ridiculous lies and false assumptions. Then at the end the truth always comes out and then magically everyone forgives each other and lives happily ever after...

I know it's a romance, but at least use a different trope to mix it up occasionally.

Brilliant!!!

I loved Perry and Garratt's story! I'll admit I got emotional and teared up more than once while reading as it was at times emotional given Garratt's CV levels, the fallout between him and Lynch and the revelation of Perry's past. I love how it ended though and I can't wait to see what happens next and if the ideas discussed in the last chapter are followed up on!
