It s such a joy to reread this after being away so long I love it just as much as the first time This is one of the only books I ve read that I could say is romantically written and that makes the reading extra funas in the prose itself is romantic And there s something very innocent about the book too probably because Elvie is such a pure characterpure as in lives one s truth not pure as in a

probably because Elvie is such a pure characterpure as in lives one s truth not pure as in a goody goody though she is sweet.It s helpful to have this on a kindle because Watasin uses words and historical references I ve never heard of before Being able to look them up quickly helps For ex, words such as callipygian meaning well shaped buttocks DThis sort of acts as a fourth book in the Dark Victorian world so it s helpful to at least read Risen and Bones first If really pressed though I think it could work as a standalonejust know that 1 Lady T is really something if Helia, someone who runs toward and thrives on danger, is completely terrified of her and 2 Ellie, though blind , is a total bad ass She s a bodyguard and stick for hire and we see that the most in Bones Absolutely wonderful Can t recommend highly enough Man, I love this author s ability to tell a story Once again, Elizabeth Watasin weaves a fantastic, magical tale with a big dollop of mystery thrown in This time, however, we also get a sensuous and innocent romance.In this book we are introduced to a new character, Elvie, a blind woman with a love for sculptured art Ellie, the blind body guard we met in The Dark Victorian Bones book, is Elvie s friend and confidante We follow the two as they meet a most intriguing and mysterious woman, Lady Thanatou, an accomplished sculptress in her own right She has her sights set on Elvie, but is she friend or foe This was a really interesting story to follow and I was intrigued the entire read Watasin s use of language is practically poetic and the story feels so rich, especially as it s written mostly from Elvie and Ellie s perspectives Every scene between Elvie and Lady Thanatou feels thick with sensuality and seduction, in an extremely satisfying way Elvie is a lovable and admirable young woman, Ellie is piss and vinegar AND we get scenes with Helia Skycourt and Artifice, as well I not only loved the author s descriptions in this story but her use of humor is most unique and wonderful There seems to always be a joke beneath the surface if it s not already blatantly said out loud and it really makes the book ring with charm.The only blight I have against it, is the book s two main character s names, Ellie and Elvie being so similar Luckily, these ladies are unique and strong enough that they are soon easy to distinguish and it was no longer an issue to keep them straight after the first few pages.Whole heartedly recommend this read It is definitely a favorite.Also, be sure to read the author s notes at the end of the book as they re engaging and enlightening, giving some good background to the story Can I givethan 5 stars Because I would Oh my Goddess, yes this is a book about goddesses and Greek Mythology and the senses
