A tantalising new trilogy set in Regency London from the award-winning author of EON and EONA.
London, April 1812. Lady Helen Wrexhall is set to make her debut at the court of Queen Charlotte and officially step into polite Regency society and the marriage mart. Little does Helen know that step will take her from the opulent drawing rooms of Mayfair and the bright lights of Vauxhall Gardens into a shadowy world of missing housemaids and demonic conspiracies.
Standing between those two worlds is Lord Carlston, a man of ruined reputation and brusque manners. He believes Helen has a destiny beyond the ballroom; a sacred and secret duty. Helen is not so sure, especially when she discovers that nothing around her is quite as it seems, including the enigmatic Lord Carlston.
Against a backdrop of whispered secrets in St James's Palace, soirees with Lord Byron and morning calls from Beau Brummell, Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club is a delightfully dangerous adventure of self-discovery and dark choices that must be made ... whatever the consequences.
Hooray there will be more Lady Helen's to look forward too. Alison Goodman evokes a little Anne Rice in her choice of storytelling, but does so with a lighter hand which means you can gobble this novel down quickly yet feel satisfied. A fantastic Regency romp with a twist. You'll enjoy discovering Lady Helen's special powers just as much as she does. Libby
