Product description


"Glass and Steele Make for Powerful Reading...What would happen if you took Sherlock Holmes, Hermione Granger, and sprinkled in a few characters from Jane Austin and Zane Grey? You would probably begin to approach what C.J. Archer has done with India Steele and Matthew Glass. Be prepared for Victorian morals, magic, mystery, and culture clashes. Fun reading and in the hands of the right director a great series of movies." ~ Katie Squire

"from the start to finish; I could not stop reading! This book had me hooked! I read it one day! I've only just found out about C.J Archer, and if I may say, she's definitely going to be a favorite author of mine. The characters in her were mysterious, cunning, and witty. I like the fact that it takes place in London, even though I've never been there. All of the characters had their own unique role to play out, and I just couldn't bring myself not to continue further! If you're invested in reading historical fantasy, this book is definitely one book I'd recommend!" ~ Miss Raven
