Publisher's Summary

When an apprentice from the Mapmakers' Guild goes missing, Matt and India are employed to find him. Going undercover as a married couple, they discover that not everyone at the guild is what they seem, and the lad's unearthly maps caused jealousy, suspicion and fear.

With one of the apprentice's magic maps in their possession, India and Matt must use their wits and India's fledgling, untried magic to find him. But the more they investigate, the more sinister plots they uncover, including a link between the Mapmakers' and Watchmakers' Guilds, and an ancient magical treasure buried beneath the streets of London.

As the net of suspicion widens and enemies draw closer, it's not just the apprentice's life that's in danger, but Matt's too. Someone will go to great lengths to prevent him discovering the name of the man who can fix the watch keeping him alive. Great lengths indeed.

    "Loved it!"

    I loved this historical fantastical mystery. I enjoyed the characters and the story, from beginning to end. I will definitely be reading more from this author. Good stuff. The narration was top notch too.

    "A great follow up to book 1!"

    The excitement continues in the second installment of this historical fiction. Magically objects and people with the propensity to wield it is the theme in this book.

    If you read the first book you know that Matt, our mysterious bad boy, is a wounded good bad boy. Those are the most delicious to fall in love with as India will discover.

    Every intelligent independent female follows their own course of action. The usual consequences are she needs to be rescued from these dangerous situations. For Matt and India, Matt gets an opportunity to voice his admonishments in physical closeness to India which violates the Victorian rules on propriety.

    The tension increases as Matt illness progress, his imminent departure and now a mystery to solve. Of course, his household is no longer a place of solace with his aunt in residence. Her presence is not only stressful to Matt but to his American cousins as well.

    The mystery is a learning experience for the reader and India. We find other people can imbued magic into objects and we discover more about the process. Astoundingly magic is more rampant as the best kept secret than we thought from the first book.

    To be an ill man, Matt gets into more physical altercations than an ill man should be able to survive. With his protective circle, there is more bickering about his care and more people going off on their own, so he does not have to. No one stops to think these situations call for Matt to come to their rescuer.

    There are still so many questions about the magic, when Matt and India will pledge their affections and what is in American for our heros. C. J. Archer has written a series for us Victorian Sci-Fi & Fantasy that I enjoy.

    "Why change the reader?"

    The readers performance was fine but it was hard to recognize the new rendition of the characters. The voices from book 1 and book 2 for cyclops, willie and Matt were dramatically different

    "GOOD. FANTASTIC STORYLINE."

    Very well written . The plot is very good. Interesting take on magic by watchmakers. The guild of watchmakers are against magic and there is a strict control enforced on the members. India Steele and Matt Glass investigates on a missing apprentice. Very interesting overall. I hope book three will be published soon.

    "the book was good, but the narration was..."

    I like the writing and the storyline, but the narration was distracting. This narrator was not great at Matt's American accent. It was as if she forgot he was supposed to be American. Also, she had this kind of breathless way of reading. so she was okay, but really that good.

    "Switched"

    I was initially a little bummed out to not hear the same narrator. Realizing it was a series to have the same narrator for all would have been better.
