Publisher Description

New York Times bestselling author Amanda Quick presents an Arcane Society novel that reveals the passionate—and paranormal—secrets of proper Victorian London.

Attempting to recover a relic stolen from her family years ago, gifted crystal worker Leona Hewitt secretly makes her way into Lord Delbridge's private museum. But who she finds there is more entrancing than the crystal she seeks.

Thaddeus Ware is a mesmerist with powerful psychic energy—that doesn't seem to be affecting the woman before him. Instead, Leona seems to exert a rather hypnotic power over the hypnotist himself. After she gives him the slip, absconding with the crystal they recovered, Thaddeus fears for her safety. For he is on assignment for the secretive Arcane Society and knows that the crystal holds the potential for great destruction. It is the key to Lord Delbridge's membership in a shadowy group known as the Third Circle. The nobleman killed before to acquire the crystal, and Thaddeus has no doubt that he will kill again.

"Leona is a crystal reader. While dressed in mens clothing, she runs into (literally) Thaddeus while both are trying to steal a powerful crystal from Lord Delbridge. I quite enjoyed this Victorian era Arcane Society novel. The characters were well developed and the adventure quite good."

    " I think this one would have been better in print. The audio was SO ANNOYING! But, that aside, the story fell short to me. The romance was flat and alot of the historic details about the arcane society I found somewhat boring. Again, I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it instead of listened to it. I had to finish so I could continue with the other books in the series that I already have. Overall I like the series, so I'll continue, but this one didn't do much for me. "

    " this one kind of the second sight, the frist book in the series. Leona, the main female character, did get on my nerves, but not as much as venetia did. Thaddues and Leona do make a good pair, when they aren't fighting. "
