4.0 out of 5 stars Sequel to 'What angels fear'., 26 Jan 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When Gods Die (Sebastian St. Cyr Mysteries (Paperback)) (Mass Market Paperback)
June 1811 and the Prince Regent is found in a compromising position with the corpse of a murdered noblewoman. Sebastian St Cyr, a young man with a dark past and a dangerous reputation, is asked to undertake an investigation to clear the Prince Regent's name.

Don't expect a pastiche of Jane Austen - this is the Regency with more than a touch of Hollywood about it. Although the author has researched the politics and personalites of the era, the speech and thought patterns of the characters have a modern feel. Still, it's an entertaining, undemanding read, not too gory, and Sebastian St Cyr is an engaging hero.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Regency with a twist, 16 Jan 2009
This review is from: When Gods Die (Sebastian St. Cyr Mysteries (Paperback)) (Mass Market Paperback)
I have been immersed in the Regency period since the 1970's. If Georgette Heyer created a Regency world all of her own then C S Harris has done the same. Both remained true to the basic mores of the society they portray but each have imprinted them with their own individual stamp.

I love both worlds. C S Harris is a gifted writer who creates believable characters. Sebastian St Cyr is a troubled human being with a tormented past who nevertheless tries his best to do the right thing, frequently endangering his life to bring about justice.

Each new book is eagerly awaited, cleverly crafted and thoroughly enjoyed. I recommend the whole series to you. If you want a Regency with a little twist then these are the books for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Georgian mystery, 29 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When Gods Die (Sebastian St. Cyr Mysteries (Paperback)) (Mass Market Paperback)
An easy to read book that keeps your interest. I found some of the characters intriguing as they highlight some of the less glamourous side of Geargian society.
