The third trip to McMaster’s vampiric steampunk world (after Kiss of Steel and Heart of Iron) is rich, dramatic, romantic, and dangerous. Rosalind (code name Mercury), the leader of the “humanist” movement in Victorian London, fights for humans to have equal rights in the aristocratic Echelon world. She despises the pseudo-vampires known as blue bloods. Hoping to locate her missing brother, Rosalind goes undercover as Rosa, a secretary for Sir Jasper Lynch: Master of the Nighthawks, blue blood, and sworn enemy of Mercury. Lynch’s first encounter with seductive revolutionary Mercury left them both full of forbidden lust, and now he’s developing feelings for his new secretary. Rosalind is torn between two worlds, surprised at how her opinion of blue bloods can change, but still wary and distrustful. Meanwhile, Lynch is investigating a series of horrific massacres committed by Echelon members in the throes of frenzied bloodlust. Sensuous memories and unfulfilled desires help build tension between the leads, and fans will enjoy the expansion of McMaster’s detailed setting. Agent: Jessica Faust, BookEnds. (Oct.)
