Hazel Hughes has spent her life believing she is a Medium—someone who can talk to ghosts. But as of yet, that skill has remained frustratingly elusive. She is also suffering from a reoccurring childhood dream of someone who looks almost exactly like Hazel, but this dream version of herself is slowly going mad.
Sam MacInnes is a talented surgeon who runs in the highest social circles thanks to his family’s position and history. When Sam hires Hazel to assist him with his medical practice, he is immediately drawn to her intelligence, wit, and beauty.
Their potential relationship is derailed one evening when a mysterious count arrives in London and reveals to Hazel the truth about her past: she was abducted at birth and her twin sister has fallen dangerously ill.
Hazel agrees to travel to Romania with Count Petrescu in order to save her sister, and Sam insists on accompanying her. The count has secrets, though, and the journey grows more sinister with every mile that draws Hazel closer to her homeland. Even as her feelings for Sam become deeper and more complicated, she fears she might not survive the quest to save her sister with her heart intact, not to mention her life. She must learn to draw on gifts she doesn’t know she has if they are going to ever return home again. Hazel and Sam must fight their way past dark magic, clockwork beasts, and their own insecurities as they try to reach her sister in the impenetrable Coppergate Tower before time runs out.
I had received the book from the publisher for this book and after listening to the audio of her last book Kiss of the Spindle I actually took it upon myself to purchase the audio of this book so I can listen to it because I loved the last narrator and I totally loved this one also.
This book is just fantastic, I loved the pace and the chemistry between the characters. I have adored Hazel since the first book and was so excited that she was going to get her own story. I loved her story and how it was laid out. I thought this was an excellent retelling and all the paranormal/steampunk elements just enhanced the story. Listening to the voices of the characters just made me so happy and I loved the banter sometimes. I may have laughed a few times, out loud. I just really loved Sam and Hazel. The story had some creepy elements too which I loved. I couldn’t get enough of this story or the characters.
The Narrator is fantastic, I loved her voice and how easy she told this story. I am considering going back and listening to the first book. She accent is perfect and she really gave them a great voice.
I believe you can read this series in any order but I recommend reading it in order. I can’t wait to see what fairytale she is going to retell next. I am so excited and this series will always be one of my most anticipate for as long as she writes them.
I can’t recommend this book and/or series enough. Whether you read the physical or listen to the audio I do hope you love it as much as I did. I don’t give many 5 star rating but this one could have easily been a lot more. I thought Beauty and the Clockwork Beast was my favorite in this series but I might actually like this one better but it’s really hard out of the three to pick just one…..I honestly love this series so much! You must give it a try!
