This Crumbling Pageant by Patricia Burroughs

Book 1 of The Fury Triad

Persephone Fury is the Dark daughter, the one they hide.

England, 1811. Few are aware of a hidden magical England, a people not ruled by poor mad George, but the dying King Pellinore of the House of Pendragon.

The Furys are known for their music, their magic, and their historic role as kingmakers. When Fury ambitions demand a political marriage, Persephone is drugged and presented to Society-- only to be abducted from the man she loves by the man she loathes.

But devious and ruthless, Persephone must defy ancient prophecy, embrace her Dark magic, and seize her own fate.

Get swept away into the first book of a dark fantasy series combining swashbuckling adventure, heart-pounding romance, and plot-twisting suspense.

There is a pretty good story in there under all the purple prose. The hero/villain gets a little silly ("teeth gnashing"? Really?), but maybe the second will be a little less overwrought.

So much magic and passion. Persephone is so fierce. I’m so glad the next book is already in my Nook app!

Even though this book didn't end on a cliffhanger, it left me desperate to read the next and as soon as possible!

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. Page turner from the first to the last.  The story is lengthy, but was very well written.  The author does an amazing job with descriptions.  You feel like you are in the story.  I look forward to many, MANY more works from her.

This Crumbling Pageant is a high fantasy that focuses on Persephone Fury's journey into womanhood but more she is a chosen child of the gods. The story does have an unusual pace. I can liken the story to a snow ball slowing rolling down the hill, it gains momentum and magnitude as the tale progresses. All of the sudden you are completely pulled in by circumstances wanting to navigate the complex whys and what ifs. By the end, I felt somewhat overwhelmed by the consequence and weighted down by the significance to all that occurred. The highly complicated plot is infused with extremely original and imaginative world building. Burroughs creates evil that permeates bone deep and gives us shocking plot twists and turns that will have you reeling.
