I quite enjoyed my first book by Amanda Quick. Interesting to learn more about that period in England.

I love this book! Jayne Ann Krentz is one of my favorite authors, no matter which name she writes under. Virginia and Owen were excellent protagonists from the moment they first appeared through to the last. As is usual for me when reading a Krentz/Quick/Castle book, I was sad to say goodbye to them. Their investigations were thrilling. I am very much looking forward to reading the third book in this trilogy.

Violence: The main characters are investigating murders. The female lead is in peril. One fight leads to death by knife for the bad guy.

In the New York Times-bestselling author's latest Arcane Society novel, a paranormal killer pushes an unlikely duo's powers and passions to the limit.

Virginia Dean wakes at midnight beside a dead body, with a bloody knife in her hand and no memory of the evening's events. Dark energy, emanating from the mirrors lining the room, overpowers her senses. With no apparent way in or out, she is rescued by a man she has met only once before, but won't soon forget.

Owen Sweetwater inherited his family's talent for hunting the psychical monsters who prey on London's women and children, and his investigation into the deaths of two glass-readers has led him here. The high-society types of the exclusive Arcane Society would consider Virginia an illusionist, a charlatan, even a criminal, but Owen knows better. Virginia's powers are real-and they just might be the key to solving this challenging case.
