The excitement continues in the second installment of this historical fiction. Magically objects and people with the propensity to wield it is the theme in this book.
If you read the first book you know that Matt, our mysterious bad boy, is a wounded good bad boy. Those are the most delicious to fall in love with as India will discover.
Every intelligent independent female follows their own course of action. The usual consequences are she needs to be rescued from these dangerous situations. For Matt and India, Matt gets an opportunity to voice his admonishments in physical closeness to India which violates the Victorian rules on propriety.
The tension increases as Matt illness progress, his imminent departure and now a mystery to solve. Of course, his household is no longer a place of solace with his aunt in residence. Her presence is not only stressful to Matt but to his American cousins as well.
The mystery is a learning experience for the reader and India. We find other people can imbued magic into objects and we discover more about the process. Astoundingly magic is more rampant as the best kept secret than we thought from the first book.
To be an ill man, Matt gets into more physical altercations than an ill man should be able to survive. With his protective circle, there is more bickering about his care and more people going off on their own, so he does not have to. No one stops to think these situations call for Matt to come to their rescuer.
There are still so many questions about the magic, when Matt and India will pledge their affections and what is in American for our heros. C. J. Archer has written a series for us Victorian Sci-Fi & Fantasy that I enjoy.

The readers performance was fine but it was hard to recognize the new rendition of the characters. The voices from book 1 and book 2 for cyclops, willie and Matt were dramatically different
