Rosalind and Lynch's story pulls us away from Blade's gang - that curious family we've come to love in Kiss of Steel, Heart of Iron and Tarnished Knight (a novella which takes place between the first two books and which I've just realized I haven't reviewed yet... anyway, it's awesome). I admit, I was a little sad to step outside of Whitechapel and away from my dear old friends, but thankfully we get to make new friends in My Lady Quicksilver, and it was great to get a peek into another side of this world. I now also love the Nighthawks gang as much as I had loved Blade's rag-tag group and, joy of joys, we still get a few visits from lovely Leo Barrons who is destined to be the hero of Book 5, Of Silk and Steam, and who I am possibly (definitely) already in love with.
Lynch is the head of the Nighthawks, a rogue blue blood who is known for his deadly prowess. Despite what Rosalind believes, his moral compass is fairly steadfast. However, he struggles to balance his values with the orders he receives from the Echelon and his desire for the traitorous Mercury. He has a dark and dangerous side, but he would do anything to protect the people he cares about, his fellow Nighthawks, Garrett and Perry, and even the masked woman he's supposed to be capturing.
Rosalind is a really interesting heroine. She has more back story than the previous heroines of this series (which says a lot, since they've all been particularly detailed characters). She has a very traumatic past, having been forced to train as an assassin and having lost her hand and her husband to her captor. She turned her focus to the Humanist cause against the Echelon, but now she just wants to find her missing brother. Given all this detail, I could have read an entire series from her perspective. Though I do prefer the structure of this series, with one couple and HEA per book, I'm really just greedy for more Rosalind. I found her completely fascinating - caught up in her own deceptions and lost between her multitude of identities. Though Heart of Iron remains my favorite book in this series, Rosalind now ranks as my favorite heroine.
As in the previous novels, the passion and steam in My Lady Quicksilver is pretty off the charts. The storylines, with Lynch falling in love with two versions of Rosalind, the wild rebel and the naughty secretary, as well as Rosalind's torment over falling for the man she knows she should despise, certainly add to the heat levels. This story is sexy as hell. Pull out your fans, ladies!
As I've come to expect from the London Steampunk series, the world building in My Lady Quicksilver is flawless. I'm not certain how it would read if you began the series here - I suspect it might be a slight culture shock - but for previous readers of the series, Bec McMaster continues to add wonderful detail to this already colorful world.
The London Steampunk series is a must read for anyone who enjoys steampunk, paranormal romance, smoking hot heroes and heroines who kick ass.
It was interesting to see another part of the world in this story - with just a minor appearance by past leading lady Lena. If I had a nit it's that the tough as nails Rosa does go a bit mushy at the end, but despite that the story was still really good. When I finished My Lady Quicksilver I came out feeling that there should still be more coming from the series but didn't really get a sense for where the series is going next unless we stay in the Nighthawk part of the world.
(edited to add, when I made it past the summaries for the previous books it turns out that there is a brief tease for the next books which stars the two other Nighthawks who stood out in this story - and the clueless one was just starting to see his female partner in a different light.)
Btw when will Leo get his novel? He's the only character who makes an appearance in all of the books of this series, and he's getting no story of his own? Please right this terrible wrong.

Rosalind is looking for her missing brother, Jeremy, and decides to infiltrate the Nighthawks’ headquarters, posing as Lynch’s new secretary.
Lynch is looking for the elusive Mercury, the woman who’s leading the Humanists against the Echelon, and doesn’t know that his new pretty secretary is his nemesis.
I particularly loved the great tension between the two protags. Both Lynch and Rosalind understand that they misjudged their enemies. Rosalind learns that not all bleeders are dangerous monsters, and Lynch warms to Mercury’s cause. This book kept me on the edge of my seat until the end. Beautiful descriptions, gorgeous writing, and a great plot. I can’t ask for more.
Rosalind Fairchild is a different sort of heroine from those in the previous two books in this series, she takes control, she doesn’t need saving from anyone. Jasper lynch is a fairly standard alpha male but he is no match for her. There is no point in their relationship where he is in charge.
Rosalind is desperate to find her brother and she thinks Jasper is the key. She deploys her most deadly weapons and sets about seducing him. As Mercury, the mysterious masked rebel, she taunts and challenges him. As Rosa, his tightly buttoned up assistant she gains his trust and respect. He knows he is out of his depth but he has no idea how far.
It is refreshing to have a female heroine who drives the action, takes the lead and is never manipulated by the men in the story. And there is a good plot here, if you can forgive a few small holes, it really gallops along with plenty of twists and turns. The characters are deep, complex and flawed with plenty back story. There is more than enough action and the story is nicely paced, it is all very well written. Very few of the characters from the previous books get more than a passing reference and I do miss them, I hope we get back to them later in the series.
I really enjoyed this book and would thoroughly recommend it.
