Oh, where to begin? The book was absolutely delightful and I very much enjoyed it, as much as Miss Tarabotti enjoys drinking tea, I daresay. I was completely taken by the premise of the book, it was unique and totally refreshing. Vampires, werewolves and politics all messed up in Victorian London - all complete with a dash of humor. I mean, who could resist Alexia's sass? I loved the way the story progressed, the characters were all interesting. This book was a completely fresh take to the supernatural world. I just cannot believe I had waited so long to read it!
