His greatest creation could be the death of them both.
One woman swears to avenge the savagery of a ruthless killer loose on the streets of Lundun; if only she can stay one step ahead of an inventor who fears that his greatest work, a labor of love, has turned on humanity.
Grieving the loss of her beloved cousin, Ella Wilder is determined to catch the murderer. Infuriated by the fumblings of the constable, she seeks the assistance of a handsome noble who seems to be looking for his own answers, and whose reluctance tells her he has something to hide. Over time, hesitant intimacy grows into fiery passion but brings them no closer to finding the madman.
As the killer reveals darker inventions that blur the boundary between man and machine, Ella fights the fear he may be after her next. Can Ella trust her heart to the man who refuses to share his secrets yet swears to protect her? Will Bennett be able to choose between keeping terrifying family secrets…or losing Ella to the iron-hearted killer who stalks the night?
Warning: This book contains a dirigible, flying machines, automatons, a sexy but secretive hero, a stubborn heroine, and a very determined killer.
REVIEW PROVIDED BY: Kimberly NUMBER OF STARS: 3 Stars
I have never read this author before and I found her writing confusing but interesting.
The book notes: Warning: This book contains a dirigible, flying machines, automatons, a sexy but secretive hero, a stubborn heroine, and a very determined killer.
In all honesty it was hard for me to understand what time from I was reading. It is certainly written as a historical however many people travel by dirigible and are talking about flying machines and automatons. Which is certainly not something that was going on in historical times (or not that I know of) and it made for a confusing time to read. I finally decided to just think of it as a historical and mentally disregard the futuristic moments.
That being said. The story was really interesting. It held my attention and had me wanting to know what was going to happen. And I was surprised by the ending (I won’t ruin it for the next reader). It is not something I would have normally picked up but received it as a free read for a review. But I if you enjoy historical and futuristic novels and would love to read one that combines your loves then by all means PICK UP THIS BOOK!
