Library JournalThe head of the League of Illusion is dying, and Jovan Davenport, former thief and definitely not prodigal son material, must heed his father’s call for help. Jovan’s eldest brother, Sebastian, has to be located in order to prevent the Hawthorne family from taking over the council, and Jovan promises to make peace with his other brother, Rhys, so they can find their missing sibling. Aided by Druid tracker Skylar Vanguard, Jovan leaves London to discover Sebastian’s whereabouts. Yet working together is no easy task, as Skylar and Jovan have a romantic history, but his betrayal cost them their relationship. Embers of the past don’t always stay buried, however, and Skylar and Jovan find their love rekindling. As the search continues, the threat of conspiracies and clockwork machinations may destroy everything Skylar and Jovan are seeking.
Verdict Anna’s (A Wolf’s Heart) steampunk series debut hits all the high notes of serial romance. Strong characters, a deepening story line, and fast action make this a page turner. Stay tuned for the story of the next Davenport brother’s romantic entanglement.—Kristi Chadwick, Emily Williston Memorial Lib., Easthampton, MA(c) Copyright 2013.
