Publisher's Summary

When a bomb goes off at 221B Baker Street, Evelina Cooper is thrown into her uncle Sherlock's world of mystery and murder. But just when she thought it was safe to return to the ballroom, old, new, and even dead enemies are clamoring for a place on her dance card. Before Evelina's even unpacked her gowns for a country house party, an indiscretion puts her in the power of the ruthless Gold King, who recruits her as his spy. He knows her disreputable past and exiles her to the rank alleyways of Whitechapel with orders to unmask his foe. As danger mounts, Evelina struggles between hiding her illegal magic and succumbing to the darker aspects of her power. One path keeps her secure; the other keeps her alive. For rebellion is brewing, a sorcerer wants her soul, and no one can protect her in the hunting grounds of Jack the Ripper.

great steampunk fantasy series

I love the steampunk/victorian settings of this series for a nice change of pace in my fantasy reading. The book has it all murders,mystery,magic, clockwork devices, evil villains, romance and of course proper manners. I loved Sherlock Holmes appearances as Evalinas uncle and the interesting take on Jack The Ripper! The story has a great cast of characters which are easy to invest care for. The narrator was good except for one annoying voice for the blue king which was thankfully short. I eagerly await the next book A study In Ashes.

- Lisa "I have always loved to read. Discovering audible has been great for a multitasker! Sorry for any misspells on reviews!"

Kind of disappointed

Any additional comments?

In the first book we have a strong female protagonist who rises to the challenge of her circumstance. In this one, Evelina just crumples. I'm especially disappointed with the romance, because it seems out of character for her.
