It was...alright. It just wasn't what I was expecting. I thought it was going to be a lot more queer than it ended up being. Not generally a period drama reader, but it was pretty good in it's portrayal of the time. ( )

Take every plot point from Downton Abbey, make it incredibly stupid, and you have Cinders & Sapphires . The gay valet and master; the conniving, evil lady's maid; the sweet and loyal lady's maid; the foreign lover; the innocent valet being accused of murder (although are we still really positive that Mr. Bates was innocent?); and the list goes on and on. It took every bit of will-power to not quit reading this. I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone. ( )

I couldn't put this book down. It was full of intrigue and courtly gossip. Downton Abbey for teens with an East Inda Trading Company feel. The writing is super good and the characters well thought out and portrayed well for the time period. A completely lush and guilty pleasure read. Highly recommended. ( )
