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.
