Publisher's Summary

As part of her devil’s bargain with the industrial steam barons, Evelina Cooper is finally enrolled in the Ladies’ College of London. However, she’s attending as the Gold King’s pet magician, handcuffed and forbidden contact with even her closest relation, the detective Sherlock Holmes.
But Evelina’s problems are only part of a larger war. The Baskerville affair is finally coming to light, and the rebels are making their move to wrest power from the barons and restore it to Queen Victoria. Missing heirs and nightmare hounds are the order of the day—or at least that’s what Dr. Watson is telling the press.
But their plans are doomed unless Evelina escapes to unite her magic with the rebels’ machines—and even then her powers aren’t what they used to be. A sorcerer has awakened a dark hunger in Evelina’s soul, and only he can keep her from endangering them all. The only problem is . . . he’s dead.

Kevin Hearne has great taste in books!!!

I was at the book store when I saw this book and Kevin Hearne's name on the cover jumped out at me. He's one of my favorite authors so I decided to read the first in the series since he gave the book/author his approval. I was not disappointed, it is a great series!! This installment does not let down! Angele Masters does a good job, you can hear the differences in her characters and she conveys emotion well. My only complaint is that she's a little slow. Not so slow that I want to chew my arm off and beat myself to death with it, but much slower than I am used to. Overall, great listen/read!

I Want More

I was skeptical because of some of the reviews but I loved these books. They had a happy ending and that's a biggie for me, but I'm left wondering if there will be more books. In the end something happens to one of the main characters and I want to know what! The author leaves it with a hint there might be more so I'll watch for her books. If you enjoy steam punk you'll love Gail Carriger Finishing School series I did.
