This third book in the Crown Phoenix series focuses on Neil's sisters--Lizzie, Ninna and Matilda, and their introduction to the ongoing schemes of the delectably devious Barbara and Valiant Cantwell.
The book follows mainly Lizzie, who is an enjoyable and realistic heroine, and her attempts to deal with her parental drug addiction, life in Edwardian service, and unravel a string of mysteries, including a strange lad in the attic, a macabre typewriter with incredible properties, and a hidden passe

Satisfying conclusion alert! The main storyline concludes but you know there is still work to do.

Another one I devoured in a day. This is a bit different than the others. It's from the point of view of a new character, which surprised me at first. However, I found I slid into the easy, natural rhythm of the narrative without any trouble.

Book 3 in this series, dealt with Lizzie , Ninna and Matlida, Neil's sisters. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters as well. Though this book is surrounded around mainly Lizzie and Ninna , we follow them through their struggles to keep their family together and survive. We also see some nasty characters reappear.

This book was filled with all the drama , humor as the other book with a bit more romance, which I must say I love the blossoming romance of young love. One moment broke my h

First, I would like to thank the author Alison DeLuca for giving me this book for an honest review. The world building is nicely done. The story-line is very good. The characters are well developed and written. I really enjoyed reading this book and am looking forward to reading more of this series and more from this author.
