A Gaslight Chronicles novella

Overview

A Gaslight Chronicles novella

London, 1860

Police inspector Sebastian Brown served Queen and country in India before returning to England to investigate supernatural crimes alongside the Order of the Round Table. If his wifeless, childless life feels a little empty sometimes, that's not too great a price to pay in the name of duty.

Minerva Shaw is desperately seeking a doctor when she mistakenly lands on Sebastian's doorstep. Her daughter Ivy has fallen gravely ill with a mysterious illness—the same illness, it seems, that's responsible for taking the lives of many of Ivy's classmates.

Seb sniffs a case, and taking in Minnie and Ivy seems the only way to protect them while he solves it. But as mother and daughter work their way into his heart and Seb uses every magickal and technological resource he can muster to uncover the source of the deadly plague, it's he who will need protecting—from emotions he'd thought buried long ago.

Ashes & Alchemy is a wonderfully endearing novella length addition to the Gaslight Chronicles,  Cindy Spencer Pape gives us this delightful paranormal based romance that is touching but still holds the dark mystery we've come to enjoy. In the midst of murder, mad experiments and a devastating plague, the characters find home, family and love to last a lifetime. You can't help but be sucked in by Minnie and Ivy and I have to say that the hero, Inspector Sebastian Brown is quite enchanting as well. Many novellas seemed rushed, NOT the case with this book. Pape packs a punch while leaving you wanting more with this masterfully written story. I was emotionally invested in the characters and their dark journey. I especially love how she ties the past Gaslight players into this plot. Don't miss this fabulously quick and highly entertaining read. I received this ARC copy of Ashes & Alchemy from Carina Press in exchange for a honest review. This book will be published on January 6, 2014.
