A book worth every one of the 5 stars! I do not normally read period novels but I have now fallen in love. The author amerces you directly in the story with no pomp and circumstance allowing the story, characters, and descriptions to speak for themselves and carry you away with them. Not only does it have the normal love with seemingly insurmountable obstacles, but mystery and faced paced action.The characters are believable and appropriate for the period and the author has captured the culture and attitudes of London in the 1880's. The story was fast paced but with enough meat to the writing that it flows smoothly. It also answers one of my long time questions about ghosts. How can ghosts move objects but not people?This has made my list of books read in one night (just because I couldn't bear to put it down).

The story revolves around Emily, a 17-year old medium, who lives with her sister in Victorian England. During a seance, her sister (who runs them) holds an amulet, chants some words she doesn't understand, and releases a shape-shifting demon. The story is about finding out who, why, how etc with a dash of impossible seeming romance thrown in. The interplay between the two male characters was amusing. The whole story is interesting and the descriptions are in-depth. I enjoyed this book but did find some of the 'holes' in the story a bit ridiculous - Emily's sister is the one who runs the whole seance show but she doesn't find it even slightly strange that an unknown peddler turns up instead of the usual one, sells her an amulet with a chant she doesn't understand and then wonders why something has happened when she used it?! This is the first of three. I might read the other two but not yet! Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
