My Review

I am unable to post a full review as I have not finished reading the book.

 

 Summary

The thrilling sequel to Sharon Cameron’s blockbuster gothic steampunk romance, THE DARK UNWINDING, will captivate readers anew with mystery and intrigue aplenty.

When Katharine Tulman wakes in the middle of the night and accidentally foils a kidnapping attempt on her uncle, she realizes Stranwyne Keep is no longer safe for Uncle Tully and his genius inventions. She flees to Paris, where she hopes to remain undetected and also find the mysterious and handsome Lane, who is suspected to be dead.

But the search for Lane is not easy, and Katharine soon finds herself embroiled in a labyrinth of political intrigue. And with unexpected enemies and allies at every turn, Katharine will have to figure out whom she can trust–if anyone–to protect her uncle from danger once and for all.

Filled with deadly twists, whispering romance, and heart-stopping suspense, this sequel to THE DARK UNWINDING whisks readers off on another thrilling adventure.

Trailer

First Line

I opened my eyes, the air in my bedchamber pulsing with the kind of silence that only comes in the wake of sound — a sound that never should have been there.

Most Memorable Scene

Haven’t picked one yet.

Plot

Other than keeping Uncle Tully hidden and a few other things, the only major plot is finding Lane.

Setting

Paris is the new setting. The new house is very interesting.

Writing

The writing is as splendid as the first book.

Originality

So far the originality is just fine.

Characters

We meet a few new characters due to the move to Paris. Since I’m only a little over half way done I don’t feel comfortable giving my review of the new characters because there are a few questionable characters.

Romance

Don’t get me started! Where is Lane!? Again, only half way into this and I miss him terribly.

Title/Cover Bonus

Another gorgeous cover.

Ending

I am not done yet so: no comment.
