I really enjoyed the "Crystal Gardens" which was the first book in this series. It had a refreshingly interesting twist to the paranormal side of the story. In this tale, we have a lot of conversation, all on the same topic - hero "I don't have a paranormal talent and I don't believe in the paranormal - heroine "I have a genuine paranormal talent and so do you". Yawn. There were too many clues to the "surprise" twist at the end - I saw it coming a mile away. I do have to say that I appreciate the fact the Ms. Krentz doesn't use embarrassing incidents as humor in her books. This type of thing makes me cringe! Unfortunately I couldn't find much humor in this book. It seemed flat compared to many of the titles that I have enjoyed by her in the past. I think my favorite is "Hidden Talents". There is a single instance of paranormal activity in the book, but there are also numerous scenes that are very funny, point out human foilables, and strike just the right note of zany.
Writing is a very difficult thing to do, and Ms. Krentz does it beautifully. Even though every book can't be a stellar performance, I still enjoy reading Ms. Krentz's efforts and I look forward to reading the last installment of this trilogy.
While I did like the main characters Beatrice and Joshua, the story didn't grab me. It was a fun "beach read" kind of book where you don't have to pay much attention to anything, but not overly absorbing.
I am glad that the author jettisoned the Arcane Society in specific even though this book can, conceivably, exist side by side with them. I'm just really tired of all the books being inter-related. I suspect at some point in the future we'll have the Vanza people and Zamar inserted somewhere (Joshua DOES mention meditation with a candle and martial arts...can either be far behind?)
Obviously I'm alone in this because JAK seems to be doing well in sales and reviews, but I have to admit that I am thinking of no longer buying the books, just waiting for my turn on the library waiting list. I had been buying them simply because they are very re-readable, but I have so many I've enjoyed in the past andI can re-read, I'm not sure I "need" new ones if they are all going to be the same...

As usual Amanda creates Victorian England with such detail that you feel transported in time. The pace of the mystery is oddly comforting as well as exciting. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Sam
