I suppose I am feeling a bit passive aggressive because I now have to WAIT for the next two volumes to finish this serial. Sometimes I feel like I'm always waiting for some or another author to finish a book so I can read the next stage of the story which they cleverly hooked me into with their first book. I've already given up on Game of Thrones and Obernewtyn and made myself accept that some authors just roll that way, and since the are carrying on, I should move on too -- away from them!
That said, this series has been, so far, engrossing yet lighthearted and fun to read. There is the social whirl of the Ton, Almacks, Venetian Breakfasts, lascivious aristocrats, rakehells, innocent blondes, perfect beauties, gentlemen's clubs, gossipy women and a cantankerous dowager. In other words all the population of a Regency novel. There is also mystery - about Marjorie's parents, Sir Styne and his dealings, the mystery woman Cap. Hazelton is in love with. Also, questions/conjectures about how the Magpie's career will end and what kind of future Lord Drake will choose. I am looking forward to the next two which will, I hope, end the series satisfactorily. I hope the author will answer all questions and tie up all loose ends. I WILL wait as long as the series ends fully answering all questions. I suppose since the author appears to do monthly uploads, we will wait until July for the sixth volume. That's certainly better than a yearly wait, and manifestly better than ten years.
get complicated and the stakes are high for Marjorie the Magpie in
part 4. Can't wait to get the next installment and find out what
happens. This author really knows how to spin a story."
