When the doctor is treating emergency patients, Sebastian offers to bring the child to the doctor. He escorts Minnie to her home in one of the poorer sections of London. When they enter, someone has been there ahead of them and Ivy is not there.
Sebastian solve one problem but there are many more to be solved. With the help of Minnie and other members of the Order of the Round Table, another mystery is solved for the crown.
Another book will be out on May 19 - Dragons and Dirigibles - I can't wait!
What I liked:
It’s paranormal steampunk, which is always amazing. (Okay, sometimes it goes tragically wrong, but with Cindy Spencer Pape it’s always amazing). Add to that a heroine with no powers (other than the world’s largest heart) and a hero with absurdly weak powers (aside from being a gentleman) who both have emotional baggage and … well you just have a recipe for an excellent book, right there.
Plus I just adore Ivy. Adorable little kids are like an arrow to the heartbone every single time for me.
Oh, and a mystery that’s left open just enough to leave things open for a sequel. Which I always approve of.
What I didn’t like:
Actually, this isn’t something I care about per say, but the main characters fall in love quickly. Like over the course of a few days. And while I personally would’ve liked this progress to take longer, that’s not because I don’t buy falling in love quickly.
I just wanted more.
And I kept finding myself comparing it to Cards and Caravans (which I liked more) and getting sad because … if only there was more.
Who I’d recommend it to:
Fans of Steampunk
Residents must wear masks to protect themselves from the coal smoke that hangs heavily in the air. A product of the devotion to all things steam.
It is a cold and bitter night. Police Inspector Sebastian Brown is disturbed by a woman collapsing on his door step. Searching for a doctor who lives near to Sebastian, she has crossed London without a mask, 'tantamount to a death sentence,' braving the frost and fog, and the possibility of vampyres or cutthroats.'
Her daughter is deathly ill. Sebastian accompanies the woman, Minerva (Minnie) Shaw, to fetch her daughter, Ivy.
What they find is a murdered friend, a room indicating chaotic search, and a missing sick child.
Murders and a mysterious illness that has the patient sweating a black soot are just the beginning.
The black soot residue appears to be a bacteria capable of taking soot out of the body. In this London those who can, wear masks to prevent sure death. Children are being experimented on in the name of science!
Liam takes an interest and calls in his wife Wink, 'a scientific genius', to use her expertise.
It becomes clear that this, in more ways than one, is a case for the Knights of the Order (of the Round Table) to investigate.
Sebastian has some power. For one, he can tell when people are lying. A useful talent in his profession. He takes Minerva and her daughter Ivy into his home and heart. It seems that Ivy is more than most would guess.
A delightful novella that highlights a secondary character in the series. A worthy addition to Gaslight Chronicles.
