Taking place after Wicked as They Come, this original eBook features a mysterious lady and a reclusive mechanical genius who find love and danger in a traveling circus.

An elusive woman arrives at Criminy’s doorstep with a steamer trunk, begging for a position in the caravan to perform her unique new act. She opens her trunk to reveal a menagerie of brilliantly colored butterflies. The woman, who calls herself Madam Morpho, is on the run from a dark past in London, where she was forced to leave her equipment behind and abscond with only her tiny performers. Playing a hunch, Criminy hires Madam Morpho on the spot. Taking her down to meet Mr. Murdoch, the reclusive talented engineer who keeps the carnival’s clockworks running, Criminy instructs them to work together to design and build a groundbreaking new circus for the butterflies. Amid the magical ambiance of the circus and the hint of danger from Madam Morpho’s pursuers, she and Mr. Murdoch soon find that their scientific collaboration has produced chemistry of a more romantic kind.

Our review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pak Alpha - Michelle L. Olson: The Mysterious Madam Morpho takes place after book #1 of the Blud series, but can be read as a stand-alone story. Delilah does a fantastic job of explaining this unique world so that first time readers are able to get a mental picture & then just enjoy the tale... The story revolves around our leading lady, the very mysterious & guarded Imogen, who has come to ask Criminy if she can join his Clockwork Carnival. Once his wife Tish Sees a glimpse into Imogen's future, she's welcomed into the caravan and sent to work with the hermitic Mr. Murdoch - the brilliant creator of the Carnival's Clockwork creations - to get her act ready. Each with their own dark secrets, they are ultimately forced to deal with some incredibly intense situations and end up developing an amazing bond. Even as a novella, the story was very well rounded and had a fabulous pace. Sangland is an amazing world, and Delilah delivered a tale so fantastically vivid you feel like you're part of the magic; the characters will ensnare you instantly, and the dialogue will keeps you wanting more even after the last page is turned.  This was an excellent read and I would definitely recommend it! LITERAL ADDICTION gives The Mysterious Madam Morpho 5 Skulls. I can't wait for more... :)

This book, while not exactly expanding the world of Sang, did give a greater in-depth view of life with the caravan and the social views of the native inhabitants. I loved the main characters and enjoyed the glimpses of both Crimminy and Lititia along with the rest of the gang left over from Wicked as They Come along with the advancing of framework for book two, Wicked as She Wants. I would say I am not sure how well this book would play without having first read Wicked as They Come and getting the main framework of Sang; in that way it might be more of a chapter in the world of than a stand-alone story. Either way, I quite enjoyed it and was grateful for the snack in-between publishing that gave me that little bit more of a world I had grown to love. I am looking eagerly forward to both the full length novel and the other e-novellas coming out next year.
