Another Wednesday, another Wish List. This is actually a sequel that I cannot stop thinking about and, well, wishing for. I’m talking about The Dark Days Pact by the amazing Alison Goodman. Ever since I read the first book a couple of months ago I have been roaming the Internet for any information on the sequel because let’s face it. That book is absolutely mind-blowing my good. I am actually a huge Goodman man, having read her previous duology Eon and Eona and raved about it to anyone who’d listen.
The Lady Helen series, however, have a special place in my heart because who doesn’t love a good Regency with demon slayers. It’s also researched to perfection and the narrative just flows, which is something I have come to expect from Alison. The US cover is still not revealed, however, I managed to find the UK version online.
The second book in the compelling Lady Helen trilogy, “a delicious collision of Regency romance and dark fantasy” (Publishers Weekly starred review).
Combining Jane Austen’s high society and Cassandra Clare’s supernatural underworld, Alison Goodman’s second novel in the Lady Helen trilogy will delight fans of historical fiction and fantasy. Brighton, July 1812. Lady Helen Wrexhall is spending the summer season in Brighton, where she will continue her Reclaimer training and prepare for her duties as a fully fledged member of the Dark Days Club. Her mentor, Lord Carlston, believes that a Grand Deceiver has arrived in England, and there is no time to lose in preparing Helen to fight it. As she rushes to complete her training, Helen finds herself torn between her loyalty to Carlston and the orders of the Home Office, who wish to use her to further their own agenda. Meanwhile, the Duke of Selburn seems determined to try and protect her, irrespective of the risk to himself. With so much at stake, Helen must make an agonizing choice between duty and devotion.
Doesn’t it sound amazing? I have so many questions but sadly the book doesn’t come out in the US and the UK until January 2017!! I feel like all the books I want badly are coming out next year, which is still too far away for my taste. *sigh* I’ll have to satisfy myself with another re-read of The Dark Days Club then.
