What the Critics Say

“Like Georgette Heyer, Harris delves deep into the mores of Regency England, but hers is a darker, more dangerous place.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

History, romance, intriguing story and characters

The latest in the Sebastian St. Cyr series does not dissappoint. The mystery and plot line was inspired by Tennyson's Lady of Shallot and I just loved the symbolism as well as the interweaving of various aspects of the poem into the storyline. I recommend reading the poem both before and after so you can spot the various references. The mystery itself is well planned and interwoven with the protagonist's life. It is the characters, however, that keep you coming back to this series. They are realistic, sympathetic and I've become quite attached to them. The author has a bit of a sarcastic sense of humor and this comes out in some of her characters. Watch for the reference to a "brace of partridges". This and several other comments had me laughing out loud. I highly recommend the series, but, though each one stands alone, I heartily recommend starting at the beginning and let the story of Sebastian's life unfold. The narrator's lovely accent lends itself to easy listening and accents the story wonderfully.

Wonderful book! Wonderful author!!!

There is a reason that a lot of Audible members have given this book five stars - it is Fantabulous!!! The author is amazing. The characters are very well-rounded & complex. The reasearch must have been exhaustive. The reader has, as is usual for Davina Porter, done a wonderful job of bringing this book to life.

I have just one question ... When do we get the rest of the books in this series??? This is the seventh, and Audible also has the sixth. Please, please, please tell me that we will get the first five books also.
