Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here begins an extraordinary alliance — and a brutal and tender, shocking, and electrifying adventure to end all adventures.

It starts with a simple note. Roger Bascombe regretfully wishes to inform Celeste Temple that their engagement is forthwith terminated. Determined to find out why, Miss Temple takes the first step in a journey that will propel her into a dizzyingly seductive, utterly shocking world beyond her imagining — and set her on a collision course with a killer and a spy — in a bodice-ripping, action-packed roller-coaster ride of suspense, betrayal, and richly fevered dreams.

Review:

“A tale that combines swashbuckling adventure, a big dose of science fiction and burgeoning romance.” USA Today

Review:

“Rich…studded with treats…beautifully written.” Entertainment Weekly

Review:

“Sweeping, highly original and absorbing….Defies categorization.” Dallas Morning News

Review:

"Kinky, Atmospheric." Washington Post

I enjoyed this book immensely. So much so, I had to get the next one and then the next one! I had each book read within a day or two, because, I did not want to put them down. The 3 main characters were each so diferent and yet were tied together perfectly. With the first book, the title was a bit confusing to me though, The Glass Books, although that could be considered good in the sense it keeps you wanting more to figure it out.
