3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


The service of Britannia is not for the faint of heart - or conscience ...After defeating a clockwork army bent upon regicide, the sorceress Emma Bannon and genius detective Archibald Clare have come to respect each other's skills, despite the fact that magic and logic are usually opposing forces.

So when the Queen asks Emma to track down a missing doctor who holds the key to a deadly new weapon, Archibald's deductive talent may be just what she needs to find the man, before his destructive discovery sets the entire capital city ablaze ...The game is afoot. And the Red Plague rises.

Review by

Archibald Clare has run himself down and Emma Bannon rescues him, then they both get caught up in investigating a weaponised plague that is sweeping through London, this causes them both to get caught in politics that they don't want to. Archibald comes close to death several times and Emma finds that she cares about him.It's not a bad read but occasionally it felt like it was lagging a bit. Enjoyed it but kinda wanted more. Don't feel that i really know the characters all that well. Want more from this.
