The second book in the compelling Lady Helen trilogy, "a delicious collision of Regency romance and dark fantasy" (Publishers Weekly starred review).

Combining Jane Austen's high society and Cassandra Clare's supernatural underworld, Alison Goodman's second novel in the Lady Helen trilogy will delight fans of historical fiction and fantasy.

Brighton, July 1812. Lady Helen Wrexhall is spending the summer season in Brighton, where she will continue her Reclaimer training and prepare for her duties as a fully fledged member of the Dark Days Club. Her mentor, Lord Carlston, believes that a Grand Deceiver has arrived in England, and there is no time to lose in preparing Helen to fight it.

As she rushes to complete her training, Helen finds herself torn between her loyalty to Carlston and the orders of the Home Office, who wish to use her to further their own agenda. Meanwhile, the Duke of Selburn seems determined to try and protect her, irrespective of the risk to himself. With so much at stake, Helen must make an agonizing choice between duty and devotion.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Sequel to The Dark Days Club. The first book was huge-fun, a delicious mash-up of Regency romance and supernatural fantasy. * Bookseller *
"In a nutshell: Supernatural Regency Extravaganza "This second book in the lavishly entertaining Lady Helen trilogy - think Jane Austen meets contemporary supernatural sass - more than matches the dark drama of its impressive predecessor ... This glorious sequel has it all for fans of fantasy and historical fiction - paranormal clashes, political intrigue, smouldering romance, a handsomely headstrong heroine, and bejewelled historical detail. The writing fizzes with passion and panache throughout, much like Lady Helen herself." * LoveReading Joanne Owen *
"This book was a gripping story, with the interesting and complex character of Lady Helen Wrexhall who pulls you through the novel, and the intriguing plot twists and unexpected monsters. I really enjoyed this novel as it had attention to detail and kept me caught up in the story all the way through. It is a good book for people who enjoy historical fiction and fantasy mash-ups!" * Teen titles, reader review *
"A great read, well researched, and very authentic [...] Highly recommend for YA girl readers who are able to tackle a novel of adult length and complexity." * The School Librarian *
