Master conjurer Grey Carteret regains consciousness in a London gutter next to a concerned street urchin and not far from the body of a man murdered by magic. Some fool is hoping to use murder to raise a demon. Arrested for the crime, Grey must rely on the street urchin for help. But the lad turns out to be a comely lass, and she wants something in exchange. Pearl Parkin, a gently reared lady struggling to survive in London’s slums, sees magic as a way out of the life she finds herself trapped in. But blackmailing Grey into making her his apprentice has unexpected consequences. As they plunge into the hunt for the murderer, Pearl discovers that the things she once desperately wanted are not so important after all, and that she must risk her blood, her heart, and her very life to grasp the love she needs.… (més)

I was absolutely LOVING this right up until GREY turned into an absolute BASTARD - I could forgive his Initial shocked reaction but his subsequent disgusting behaviour towards Pearl in the following weeks was inexcusable - I was honestly hoping that someone had hexed him to explain his behaviour, but nope he was just a GRADE A DOUCHE.

Gail Dayton continues to explore a facinating steampunk universe that she has created and an interesting magic system. The characters are likeable, strong, human, and just a bit too stubborn for their own good, but it suits them. Unfortunately this series lacks the nuance of the author's previous One Rose Trilogy. Whereas there she acknowledged shades of grey in character's perceptions of the world, in this one we see that the only character who disapproves of sorcery as "blood magic" is a pathological misogynist - as if there can't be anybody who is perfectly comfortable with women and female magicians but has some trouble putting aside the misconceptions about sorcery that have been taught for two centuries.
