Most people avoid the dreaded Whitecapel district. For Honoria Todd, it's the last safe haven. But at what price?
Blade is known as the master of the rookeries—no one dares cross him. It's been said he faced down the Echelon's army single–handedly, that ever since being infected by the blood–craving he's been quicker, stronger, and almost immortal.
When Honoria shows up at his door, his tenuous control comes close to snapping. She's so...innocent. He doesn't see her backbone of steel—or that she could be the very salvation he's been seeking.
(Terra's Thoughts) Oh my I am sooooooo in love with this book. An intriguing throw together of vampires and weres with blue bloods who haven't quite made it to the full change yet and a miss mash of the lower than low humans, some down on their luck and some just down right nasty. Throw in people with some human parts, some mechanical parts and you are bound to gasp with surprise at the intensity of the lives they lead.
The story is set in the nastiest part of London where anything and everything can and will happen. Despair cuddles with fear but if you're lucky enough and find the right protector you just might be able to stave off some of that fear for a price. But at what price would you be willing to pay?
This is a hefty beefy story that has a lot of pre ground work introducing you to the how's and whys in order to give you the proper back story to bring you to the now and up and coming. Action packed with love scenes that will rock your boat all in a bit of the tick tock Wizard of Oz style of Steam punk. Oh what a ride this has been and I just can't wait to see what the next book will bring us. I feel as though this is my dysfunctional family and it's killing me to hear from them again.
