Library JournalBook 5 of the “Gaslight Chronicles” features the dashing Connor McKay and opens with his rescue of widow Belinda Danvers from a jail cell. She has been wrongly accused of witchcraft and slated for a hasty burning. Connor uses his magick to spirit Belinda away, and they fall into bed as they escape to his family home. Still smarting from his rejection by Wink in Moonlight & Mechanicals, Connor marries Belinda as a way to keep her safe from the law. Connor and the Order of the Round Table then realize that there is a pattern of persecution in the north of England and Scotland. As they set a trap for the perpetrators, they are attacked, and Connor is injured, while Belinda foils a kidnapper and a powerful wizard. Through their shared adventures, Belinda and Connor realize their true love and shared passion.
Verdict Excellent writing and a lively plot balanced with bubbling romance make this another outstanding contribution to this steampunk series.—Henry Bankhead, Los Gatos Lib., CA
