Heiress. Debutant. Murderer. A new generation of heroines has arrived.

Edinburgh, Scotland, 1844

Lady Aileana Kameron, the only daughter of the Marquess of Douglas, was destined for a life carefully planned around Edinburgh’s social events – right up until a faery killed her mother.

Now it’s the 1844 winter season and Aileana slaughters faeries in secret, in between the endless round of parties, tea and balls. Armed with modified percussion pistols and explosives, she sheds her aristocratic facade every night to go hunting. She’s determined to track down the faery who murdered her mother, and to destroy any who prey on humans in the city’s many dark alleyways.

But the balance between high society and her private war is a delicate one, and as the fae infiltrate the ballroom and Aileana’s father returns home, she has decisions to make. How much is she willing to lose – and just how far will Aileana go for revenge?

Foiled again, you think I would know better…What a gorgeous cover, I saw it and wanted to read it! Also saw that there was Faeries in it and that is always a plus. But for the past 3 months I’ve been trying and failing to get through this book. Steampunk does that to me and when I requested this book i didn’t know that that’s what it was. But I tried so hard to hold out, but I just couldn’t. I think if it hadn’t been for the Steampunk aspect I could have continued on my merry way with this book. I just couldn’t read this, every time I tried to pick this book up, or thought about reading it I went into a funk. One that I couldn’t get out of. So, all that being said, I think if you enjoy these types of books, you will most likely enjoy this book, but it just didn’t do it for me.

    Thanks for a great review Emmalee! Romantic Suspense is the genre I tend to have that problem with.

    I’ve actually wanted to read this based on the cover too but didn’t because I’d seen nothing to really lure me to it. Now that I know it’s got steampunk elements I think I will check it out more actively. 😀 Thanks again!
