Moonglow you have slayed me, utterly and completely.
I want so badly to write a review for this, but I find myself at a lack of words.
What I really loved about this book - that I think we were missing in the the first- was the whole paranormal aspect, we really got to see more and more of the supernatural world of Darkest London. More creatures (some which play an important part) - and no, I am not talking about the werewolves...It's really an interesting concept .. and you'll just have to read it to find out what I'm talking about :P
Another thing that was pretty great about this was how, all these new beings (and organization) were introduced, and how it all kind of seamlessly came together in the end. There was no unnecessary info-dump as it pertained to the story or the world-building.
Speaking of plot, There were times when I *knew* something was going but for the life of me I couldn't figure out what exactly was going on, but when it was revealed, whoo-boy. It was one of those I-did-not-see-that-one-coming.
The romance was great, there was no stretched-out denial phase or any I will stay away from you for your own benefit -Well I do believe Ian may have tried that, but it was pretty much futile ^_^- . The main characters were attracted other, and their partners knew this.
There was some doubt, on one side, but that was resolved quickly enough...don't worry though, the steam picks up a bit further into the book.
All in all it was a pretty great book. For those who enjoyed the first book, but wished there was more on the paranormal aspect, you'll definitely love this book. And even if you didn't still read it. :P
