    Charity Bishop is funny, quirky, analytical, a little sentimental, and occasionally forgetful, with an offbeat sense of humor, a tendency to like sci fi, and a storehouse of knowledge about useless trivia She gets fixated on learning things, and obsesses over them until she knows everything there is to know about them, then looks for something new to learn She gets bored with same ness, but is good at impartiality and seeing both sides in an argument In fact, she s likely to argue both sides for the sheer fun of it.Her day job is a magazine editor, and her hobbies other than writing books include over analyzing everything she comes into contact with, vigorously defending various incarnations of Sherlock Holmes against perceived injustices, irritating her friends with theological musings, and MBTI typing fictional characters.

    Alana and her sister Irina make their living pretending to be witches in Victorian London. And it is partially true, except that "witchcraft" for Alana is actually a talent, a spiritual gift as it were, the gift of being able to take the spiritual gifts, or talents, of others. She collects them, hoards them, and sells them sometimes for a profit or gives the gifts of others away. Her life, in its own way, is peaceful and mundane until Lord Tremaine steps through the door with his grandson, despe [...]

    It's hard not to go a bit fan girl-ish about this book, since I absolutely adored it! While it was a bit dark at times (dealing with the mystery behind Jack the Ripper), I think Charity did a wonderful job of handling the story, making it interesting and ridiculously hard to put down. I'm afraid I stayed up late a couple of nights in a row, just so I could read uninterrupted.;)I love that the story brings in some of the characters from her other books (Thornewicke and The Secret in Belfast), whi [...]

    This was my first historical fantasy novel and I found it quite fascinating. I honestly didn't think I would enjoy it but I found myself reading it in a matter of a few days, I just couldn't put it down. It's fast-paced, full of suspense and full of surprises. I love how Ms. Bishop used one of my favorite history figures (Katherine of Aragon) and somehow seamlessly included her in this novel without making it feel disjointed. When other authors do this sometimes it just doesn't really fit but in [...]

    I can’t seem to escape tackling controversial topics, in this book the idea of family curses, although it’s changed from a more tangible and realistic curse (such as alcoholism) into a fantastical idea. This book rather wrote itself. I knew the twist toward the end going in, and that it would tie in the Ripper murders, but the rest unfurled with each passing week. I intended to use Dr. Bell from the start. He’s fascinating man, and was a fun character to write – a no-nonsense but very co [...]
