In this series, we see both Mina and Evaline grow, change, learn to trust and to love. I loved watching these two characters throughout their year (over the course of the five books) solve mysteries, both the paranormal kind and just trying to navigate through the waters of growing up, first friendships, and first loves. Our heroes make a stand, the bad guys get their due, and there are some big surprises along the way.
All the favorite characters (and even a few new ones) are back for one last swan song. The reader is vividly transported to alt-history steampunk London in the late 1800s. Gorgeous descriptions of the buildings of the city, the costumes and clothing paint a lovely picture of this unique world.
I've appreciated that this is a series that can be read and enjoyed with my daughter. There are no lose ends to the series, but it's definitely left the possibility open for some spin off stories.
Characterization and plotting are excellent.
The descriptions of the costumes for the masquerade ball and the many gadgets of the alternate Victorian London allowed me to picture the fashions and mechanisms vividly. Even the descriptions of the fanciful foods had me craving a crab claw!
I loved that we got to see our couples dance around their romantic issues. It was typical Mina and Evaline that they could see clearly how the other's gentleman friend was totally in love but were unable to see it in their own romantic interest. And while there was a little more romance, since the characters all knew each other better and were a little older, it was all still appropriate for an adolescent/young adult audience.
Action, intrigue, romance, steampunk, and vampires--what more could you want?
