Baldwin has made her characters into living people. The dialogue is real and captures emotion and sometimes even brings laughter. The descriptions of lifestyle, inventions, clothing, books and food during Napoleon's time are vivid and based on good research. Well done, Kathleen! Can't wait for the next book!
Besides this romance plot, our heroines also have to deal with Lady Daneska returning after being routed in the first book to try to capture Tess as a gift for Napoleon and kill Tess's Lord Ravencross to make the way for her lover, his older brother.
Meanwhile, Napoleon is planning an invasion of England. Luckily, Sebastian who is in France manages to rescue the nephew of Robert Fulton and send him to Stranje House where he works to create a steamboat and other weapons to help England in its fight against Napoleon. However, this brash young American manages to really rub Lady Jane the wrong way (leading, I hope, to the romance in the next book.)
I liked Tess and thought she was a great character. Her fears of coming madness weren't so much about herself as they were about what they would do to man she loves. She was an outwardly combative person who hid a very loving nature. Gabriel was also a great hero who is overcoming a difficult childhood. The only problem is that, every time he turns around, he seems to gather a new injury or two. Tess is as determined to keep him from harm as he is to protect her.
This is a fun alternative history series with all sorts of great characters.
A note to the author: Please learn the difference between nauseous and nauseated before writing future books, as to not annoy any pesky English majors who read them.
Exile for Dreamers by Kathleen Baldwin
This is the second book in a young adult historical fiction/mystery series with a gothic feel to it. I enjoyed this book much more than book #1, which I liked but was a bit slow for me. In this book, the main focus is on Tess and her dreams, as well as his complicated relationship with Lord Ravencross. There is of course a storyline that involves political intrigue and danger for Tess and her friends. This was a very good read. I recommend this series.
