The setting, pace, writing and characters were written well. Moments where it got weird, creepy but where you couldn't stop reading, wanting to know what happens next. The ending was unexpected but not quite at the same time. It makes you wonder is it going to have a sequel or will it be left as it is? Love the cover though. Mysterious but interesting as well.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In The Emperor’s Conspiracy, a young woman named Charlotte Raven, who rose to great wealth from the dregs of England’s impoverished slums, finds herself aiding English Lord Edward Durnham in thwarting a plot by Napoleon to steal a great deal of England’s wealth. Because of her connections to the underworld from which she was raised from, Charlotte is able to lead Edward through a maze of cutthroats, murderers, and crime lords to thwart the plot.
Set in 19th century London, the story is full of colorful characters from all walks of life. The tale sweeps us into luscious ball rooms and then plunges us into slimy back streets. The heroine struggles to move away from her past, but her character never forgets those who once aided her when she was most desperate. The author knows how to write to make reading easy and pleasurable. This story was interesting from start to finish. Definitely another winner for this terrific author. Recommended for those who love historical fiction and who want a quick and intriguing read.
