Top quality read,
This review is from: Shadowdance: The Darkest London Series: Book 4 (Kindle Edition)
This is the fourth in the Darkest London series by this author and is surely set to delight this authors existing fans. Furthermore it's a book that will win over those who had previously sat on the fence as with this story Ms Callihan truly explores the nature of steam punk! Buy this and immerse yourself in a top quality read!
The story reveals to the reader what it is to be a GIM- that is a Ghost In The Machine. Mary Chase is a GIM and understands what it means to be both alive supernaturally and mechanically . Mary is a hybrid that fascinates and the author has done an amazing job in bringing her to life on the page . Supernaturalls are being murdered and Mary is partnered with Jack Talent a notorious shifter who having been tortured is driven by revenge. Their lives seem determined to be entangled but Jack is not a man to make his choices lightly anymore. Trust is no longer a word in Jacks vocabulary but something about Mary just cries out to him.
Soon it becomes apparent that the murders hide a darker purpose and demons and other creatures are roaming old London town. Danger is stalking the streets and treachery is close at hand. Can Jack trust Mary? Or will their entanglement be his downfall?
Such an amazing amount of world building goes into these books. This is an amazing series and possibly one of the best in the steampunk genre that I have read. Every book in this series just carries the reader away and it's truly a joy to just immerse yourself in the troubles that the characters face.
This book groans with sexual tension and pulls at the readers emotions. Full of adventure and intrigue this story is fueled by action and was a delight to read. This series is best read in order and I for one am so looking forward to the next installment.
