It all begins in 19th century Vienna at the World’s Fair and a case of mistaken identity by a tall, dark and handsome young man by the name of Andor who has come to meet his lady love, Irina. However, it is not his lady love at all but the adopted daughter of Dr Jekyll, Marion Jekyll. She is a bookworm who suffers a nervous disorder that may be epilepsy, forced to follow her guardian, Mr Utterson and her nanny-cum-teacher, Miss Krummacker, throughout Europe to be educated as any fine lady of the era should. Learning languages, history and all else to be the fine upstanding lady that her adopted father wished.
In Vienna, the troubled Marion begins a journey of discover into the truth that her guardians had kept hidden from her. The truth about herself, her true nature, and her real father and her late mother, and indeed how Dr Jekyll came to adopt her. As she uncovers clue after clue and falls more deeply in love with the mysterious Andor, the danger she’s in deepens, coming to a head in a surprising and action-filled finale.
For Ms Bold, who has previously written on comedic topics under the pen name Gwen Ellery, this novel is a great jump in writing. Encapsulating, mystery, horror, detective and romantic themes in one swashbuckling, roller coaster of a novel that any book lover will enjoy.
You have here a blend of romance and anticipation, a `modern' twist to the classic tale, which is just fantastic. I was very impressed by the scene settings and descriptions (really painted a picture of the story line!) and the interactions between characters are great throughout the book. You can't help but love the characters, Bold has done a brilliant job.
This is well worth a read! :)
