“The novellas of Karen Carlisle do not disappoint. Viola Stewart takes off again, Henry Collins in tow. This novella is one tale, a more somber and personal adventure for our heroine. As a definite fan I enjoyed this more macabre gaslamp story in the seedier side of London. Dr. Stewart’s optical, investigative and physical talents are in full display. The pacing is even, with the right amount of tea sipping dialogue between the more exciting moments. I’m very happy to get one longer tale, especially so soon after the first novella was released. If you love steampunk, gaslamp fantasy, Victoriana done right and a plucky protagonist…pick up the adventures of Viola Stewart!”
