Simply superb “Penny Dreadful” from Selina Kray

The Fangs of Scavo (Stoker & Bash #1)The Fangs of Scavo by Selina Kray

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a cracking good example of the classic Victorian Penny Dreadful, melodramatic and evoking the era of Sherlock Holmes and yet I still didn’t really get the “why’s” of the plot!

However, that didn’t stop me from loving the whole narrative and reading it with an ever-increasing sense of the dramatic flair being presented in the narrative.

It’s a twisty plot, with multiple strands and I think, for me anyway, on occasion it got a bit too muddled trying to work out who was plotting what.

But, overall, the main characters were compelling and I loved the relationship between Stoker and Bash, as well as Han and Cassie.

I can’t wait for book two later this month.
