Cara Devon has always suffered curiosity and impetuousness, but tangling with a serial killer might cure that. Permanently.
1861. Cara has a simple mission in London – finalise her father’s estate and sell off his damned collection of priceless artifacts. Her plan goes awry when a killer stalks the nobility, searching for an ancient Egyptian relic rumoured to hold the key to immortality.
Nathaniel Trent, known as the villainous viscount, is relentless in his desire to lay his hands on both Cara and the priceless artifacts. His icy exterior and fiery touch stirs Cara’s demons, or could he lay them to rest?
Self-preservation fuels Cara’s search for the gem known as Nefertiti’s Heart. In a society where everyone wears a mask to hide their true intent, she needs to figure out who to trust, before she sacrifices her own heart and life.
I really enjoyed this book! I was a little hesitant to pick it up for reasons I will never understand but I am so glad I did because I thoroughly enjoyed this and am really itching to get to the rest of this series!
Things that I really enjoyed:
- All of the Egyptian-ness within it! It was great to hear about some of these artifacts and the Egyptian elements were wonderful!
- I really loved the mystery that went with this. It wasn’t just a steampunk book. But it was a steampunk book that had murders in it and it was really fun to read about the mystery behind the murders.
- I really loved Cara as a character. She was independent. Though, the reason why she was so independent is sad and at times hard to read, but it was written well.
- I loved the romance between Cara and Nate. I really liked them as a duo!
If you’re in the mood for a great steampunk with murders, romance, and Egyptian elements, then pick this one up! I really enjoyed it! 🙂
