After seeing het movie last Wednesday I just had to read the second book in the series again. In great lines I knew what was going to happen of course but I wanted to read it again to know all the details again.
Of course I already knew how amazing this book was, but it still surprised me. I just couldn’t put it down, I wanted to turn the page again and again. I found myself thinking just one more chapter and then I’ll go to sleep. I just love this story and I’m glad I’ve read it again.

Do I even have to tell you how great this book is?

The view of a book addict:


I started reading this book because my best friend told me how great this series was. So I decided to get my hands on the first book and start reading it. And she wasn’t lying, it’s a great book and I loved the story and the Lords. They all have their own story and I want to know all of them.
The story just sucks you in, you want to know what’s going to happen, who they are going to meet and which role everyone will play in the story. So I just couldn’t stop reading and I found myself locked up in this book a lot!

The verdict of a book addict:

Great book and I can’t wait until I recieve the rest of the series from the mailman!

I saw this book on goodreads and after reading the summary I just knew I had to get my hands on this book and read it. Paranormal romance in Victorian London if you ask me there isn’t a better combination. From the first sentence to the last this book has captures me. I loved every word!
The story just captures you, I handn’t read anything like it before and that made this a great book. I loved the main characters and I laughed and cried with them and I couldn’t wait to read how their story would end.

What a great start of a new series, I can’t wait for the second book to come out!

So it’s been a little while since I posted one but here it is:

“No, no further down…yes, that’s the one…There!” 
Satisfaction pulled at her lips. “Ah, how lovely.”
The man at the counter flushed in pleasure. His gaze strayed to her smiling lips and held fo a moment past propriety. “The loveliest I’ve seen, Miss.”

The view of a book addict:


I really love this series from the first book, it has everything a good book needs if you ask me. A great story line a main character that doensn’t start whining everytime something bad happens. And of course the romance in the book, although that’s not the main storyline.
This book was just as amazing as the first two in the series, the story kept me on the edge of my seat. Although this book is about demons and I’ve never met any demons you could see how the world would be if they were walking the earth.

The verdict of a book addict:

What a great series, I found out that there will only be one book in this series. I’m going to miss the characters after that book but I loved every page of this one!
