When bodies go missing from the cemetery, Lincoln and the Ministry of Curiosities investigate. But not Charlie. As a housemaid at Lichfield Towers, she doesn’t get involved in Ministry business.
Instead, she conducts investigations of her own. She searches for details about her real mother, and makes inquiries into Lincoln’s background. What she learns has the power to destroy the fragile trust they’ve built, or bring them closer together.
As secrets are revealed, and investigations don’t go as planned, Charlie finds her necromancy sucking her into a whirlpool filled with betrayal, lies and danger.
Okay so the first one had me iffy about the Lincoln/Charlie ship but damn if this one didn’t yank me onto that train. The way Charlie constantly stands up to him and isn’t afraid to speak her mind is wonderful and I love how they clashed with each other only to always come back together. The growth in trust and friendship and more was strong and amazing and this was just the slow-burn kind of romance that I needed. The plotline was also intriguing, although not as suspenseful as the Frankenstein one. I think I’m being swept away by this series and I honestly do not care.
