  • Brilliant story-telling Feb 13, 2012

    This novel will not dissappoint. It may open your eyes, cause you to gasp or even teach you a thing or two.Spiced with much Victorian "sauce" but not-at-all smutty or sleezy. It is intelligently written, for a reader who appreciates atmosphere and attention to detail. The characters are interesting, deceptive, strong, weak, troubled and ambitious and you will most definately want to hear more about them long after you've read the final page!!

  • This book left me wanting MORE! Jul 9, 2009

    This wonderful story is so fast paced and informative and interesting I really couldn't put it down. Not for the timid, though, it leaves absolutely nothing to the reader's imagination. It is non-stop action and truly an incredible look into Victorian London's morals and lack of same. I enjoyed every page and have ordered The Apple to see what happens to these vivid characters later on. What delicious fun this was to read.
