I enjoy thinking about possible alternate realities. The plot of Little Wicked Things sets up a very believable and frightening alternative to Victorian London. The nineteenth century was one of tremendous scientific changes. In this version, people tinkered with transmutation, with disastrous results. Miriam comes across a journal which details the experiments, a journal which she has promised to destroy. Unfortunately before she can do that, she is captured.
The plot is well-paced, with the tension building as Miriam uncovers more and more about several different plot lines. She has always worked alone, but now discovers that she must help others and in turn be helped by them. She needs to work with those whom she normally has considered to be immoral. She learns a lot about the way others struggle to live. She also develops a greater hatred of those who are called the Four Hundred, haughty powerful aristocrats who are currently in charge of the nation.
I was hooked from the opening page and as the tension built I found that I couldn’t put the book down. I went down many dangerous paths with Miriam, watching as she fights evil and finds kindness in surprising places. I liked the fact that Miriam is willing to learn about those she had formerly just judged. She develops and changes as the novel progresses, but one thing never changes and that is her determination to hunt the Knockerboys.
Readers who enjoy steampunk fantasy are sure to be captivated by Miriam and her quest for a better world.
