Customer Review

on 20 November 2013
Mystery, fantasy, magic and romance... Cowley did a beautiful job with this novel, It had similarities to one of my other favorite reads (The Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness). The lead character Emily Daggett is some one I can identify, particularly her love for magic and supernatural as well as being a notorious bookworm. Here curiosity often got her into some sticky situations, but driven by her belief and passion for magic, she was a courageous and strong heroine.
The mysterious Hartgrave was charismatic but yet somewhat difficult and opinionated which added an interesting dynamic to the story as it began to unfold. (I won't give any spoilers away, as it is not my style).

The story itself was well balance between fanatsy and real life situations, whilst still offering a pure escapism. Cowely's descriptive style allows the reader to build strong imagery from her text without giving information overload.

I cannot give enough praise for Cowley's work and can't help but wonder if maybe we could have another adventure with Daggett and Hartgrave?
