Things I Liked:
I still love this series. There's something so fascinating about a Victorian mystery starring a woman who works for a secret agency employing only women agents. Mary continues to entertain with her headstrong, dangerous ways and cleverness. I just love watching the way she interacts with people in the time period, because she's different from what you'd expect of a woman, especially one who is half Chinese, in that era. The historical details are very well done, compelling and believable and they bring you 100% into the story. Oh, and James - wow I loved their interactions! Some really good romance there. It was interesting, it was compelling, it's just smart historical fiction with a unique heroine. I'd like more Mary adventures, especially with the way the Agency is going now.

Things I Didn't Like:
The mystery and story itself didn't seem to hold together as well as the other books did. There were a few too many different story lines going on and I kind of lost interest at times. Still, I think this is a series worth reading and following. I'm especially interested to see where Mary goes next, what with that surprising ending.
