June 1812. Just weeks after her catastrophic coming-out ball, Lady Helen Wrexhall—now disowned by her uncle—is a full member of the demon-hunting Dark Days Club. Her mentor, Lord Carlston, has arranged for Helen and her maid, Darby, to spend the summer season in Bristol, where Helen can sharpen her Reclaimer powers. Then the long-term effects of Carlston’s Reclaimer work take hold, and his sanity begins to slip. At the same time, Carlston’s Dark Days Club colleague and nemesis will stop at nothing to bring Helen over to his side—and the Duke of Selburn is determined to marry her. The stakes are ever higher for Helen, and her decision will truly change the world…

My Thoughts

I am so thankful for Penguin for sending me the paperback of the first book and an ARC of the second one. I have to say the first one was a solid 3.5 stars for me, but the second installment really had me hooked! I liked Lady Helen even more in this second one. I don’t know if it was because Lady Helen seems stronger or what, but I definitely loved reading her story.

There is so much that happens in this story and I honestly do not want to spoil anything for you guys. Just know that if you enjoyed the first book, you’ll love this second one and you will be left dying for the third book!

    I love book series that get better as they go on. Sometimes they lose their spark as they go on. Thanks for the review!
