I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I had taken a very long time to read the second book in the series and kind felt less enthusiastic but then I reread the book (finished last night) and started and finished this book today and I'm very please.

This is the Ivy Lockwell trilogy and they really all need to be read together. Luckily all three are out now so if you want are wary of reading series before they are done - you can pick up book one secure in the knowledge that you will be able to lay your hands upon books 2 and 3 easily.

I wanted so badly to like this third book in the series, but I just couldn't.

It's dull and predictable. The first book had the clever homages to Austen and Bronte, but the continued series tries too hard. I still wish I'd liked it.

I received this book for free through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program. ( )

Super! Like all the books in the series, this one start slowly and then speeds up like crazy. It got very exciting and there were quite a few revelations. Very good! ( )

This was a great conclusion to this trilogy. A great blend of fantasy and victorian fiction Looking forward to more from this author Keeps you guessing who really is the bad guy and will the main character fall to evil with her powers.
