The Dark Days Pact

Lady Helen is training as a Reclaimer, a righteous group of guardians that stops the Deceivers from pulling life-sustaining energy from unwitting, even unwilling, victims. This requires close encounters with Lord Carlston, a Reclaimer who may have combated Deceivers too many times, turning himself dark with Deceiver energy. When a relic comes into play, Lady Helen must try to retrieve it without condemning her own soul. This is the sequel to The Dark Days Club and continues the story in Regency England in 1812. The characterization is a bit shallow, the love triangle forced, the length unnecessary due to excessive detail, and the dialogue unnatural. Readers will know more about this time period than necessary for the story, but it will attract a following, much like City of Bones. The main redeeming value is that Lady Helen is a strong heroine, trying to break free from her stilted women’s world and prove her strength and value. This will resound with many readers who find their voices restrained and their lives out of their control. However, this is undermined by the fact that Lady Helen must pass herself off as a man. Maybe a beach read…
