Review

This is great fun: vivid Regency drama with a demonic supernatural twist. * The Bookseller * In a delicious collision of Regency romance and dark fantasy, Goodman (Eona) tells the story of Lady Helen Wrexhall, a wealthy 18-year-old orphan on the eve of coming out at the court of King George III [...] Lady Helen is a well-drawn heroine, and her struggle to free herself from the stilted life of an early-19th-century noblewoman and embrace her wilder, darker self is powerfully delineated. * Publishers Weekly * The Dark Days Club is beautifully written, absolutely captivating and left me wanting more. -- Reader Review * Love Reading 4 Kids * The Dark Days Club was modern and classic all at the same time and I loved it! It was a whole new world of excitement, twists and turns, that I never saw coming. -- Reader Review * Love Reading 4 Kids * I really loved this book! The best part was the ending, and I can't wait until the next book is released. -- Reader Review * Love Reading 4 Kids * This is a compelling read, combining a richly detailed Regency London setting with a shadowy world of demons and violence. -- Reader Review * Love Reading 4 Kids * It's a simple concept, of course, and one that's hardly original, but what makes this a success is that it's written in such a wholeheartedly convincing style: the research into London in 1812 is impeccable, from the Pride and Prejudice-echoing dances to the politics of the day. The prose is as witty as Elizabeth Bennet herself and the whole book is a joy from start to finish. We'll be hearing more from Lady Helen - thank the lud. * SFX Magazine * It's refreshing to see a character like Helen: not a 21st century heroine effortlessly transcending the oppressive 19th century setting, but a normal girl who resists the temptation of this dangerous path. Helen's torn between her desire for a proper future and her fascination with her strange abilities, and it's in those moments of doubt when her courage and reason shine through the most. Lucky for us, this fantastic introduction leaves us hungry for more. * Entertainment Weekly * The Dark Days Club was a great mix of fantasy, history and romance with classic YA heroes and heroines and I would definitely recommend it to fans of The Infernal Devices or The Diviners series where the fantasy element and the rich historical background blend together really well. I would probably recommend this for the beautiful detail of Regency London alone and think anyone even vaguely interested in the era would find it enjoyable! * Bookish at Heart * "The Dark Days Club was one of my favourite books I read last year." * sophiereadsya.blogspot.co.uk *

Product Description

'A MESMERIZING MARRIAGE BETWEEN REGENCY ROMANCE AND URBAN FANTASY ... I DEVOURED THIS SERIES'

-- Sabaa Tahir, author of the bestselling An Ember in the Ashes series

London, April 1812.

Lady Helen Wrexhall is set to make her debut at the court of Queen Charlotte and officially step into polite Regency society and the marriage mart. Little does Helen know that step will take her from the opulent drawing rooms of Mayfair and the bright lights of Vauxhall Gardens into a shadowy world of missing housemaids and demonic conspiracies.

Standing between those two worlds is Lord Carlston, a man of ruined reputation and brusque manners. He believes Helen has a destiny beyond the ballroom; a sacred and secret duty. Helen is not so sure, especially when she discovers that nothing around her is quite as it seems, including the enigmatic Lord Carlston.

Against a backdrop of whispered secrets in St James's Palace, soirees with Lord Byron and morning calls from Beau Brummell, Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club is a delightfully dangerous adventure of self-discovery and dark choices that must be made ... whatever the consequences.

A tantalising trilogy set in Regency London from the award-winning author of Eon and Eona.
