A Chinese Legend.
A British Secret.
Star-Crossed Lovers with Incompatible Magic.
Brixton Flew works as a professor of wielder instruction at Rembrandt Academy, hoping to erase the regrets of his youth along with the resulting debt. But when he comes face to face with his biggest regret—the woman who broke his heart, Adelaide Favan—Brixton soon realizes his troubles have only begun.
Unable to control her magic, Adelaide knew leaving Brixton was the only way to protect him when they were younger. Now she discovers he is the key to recovering the Dragon Eyes, a legendary treasure connected to her magic and her family’s disgraced legacy—and she knows the risk is great, to both his life and her heart.
With others seeking the power of the Dragon Eyes, Brixton and Adelaide must outwit their foes and face down their families to save London from an ancient legend that sleeps beneath the magic portal in their city.
But the renewed passion growing between them may prove to be the greater peril …
What I thought
I received a copy of this book from Laura at Unicorn Questor and the Author as part of a Bookstagram Tour, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Do you want: a unique take on Steampunk London, color magic, and second chance romance? Then look no further.
I have read books by this author before so I knew that I was going to like the book but what I did not expect was to like it as much as I did. I am a fan of steampunk books and I have to say that I can be picky because I know what kinds of things I like, and this book gave me that and more.
I loved this take on Victorian London, and how the author was able to mix the magic and steampunk elements together and make it all work so well. I loved the family elements and how Brixton and Adelaide interact.
I really hope the author decides to continue this series. I love these characters and I can not wait to see what is in store for them. I can see so many directions that future books can take not just with these two characters but branching off for storylines about Luella she was a strong character in her own way and the book just would not have been the same without her.
My Rating: /5
