2.5 stars

This reads like many of Raybourn's other books, which isn't bad if you like them, but I found them to all be pretty formulaic even down to the characters after a while.

Skimmed it. I don't know how a parody can sustain itself for a whole book but here it is.

The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman
"2/16/16 - 4 stars
Wow, I really liked this. It succeeded for me as a Regency novel (the society! the improprieties! the clothes!) AND as a paranormal novel, which is quite rare. If you like historical fiction, fantasy, or both, this is a great pick..." Read more of this review »

“Essentialism is not about how to get more things done; it’s about how to get the right things done. It doesn’t mean just doing less for the sake of less either. It is about making the wisest possible investment of your time and energy in order to operate at our highest point of contribution by doing only what is essential.”
Greg McKeown, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

Robin Sloan
“After that, the book will fade, the way all books fade in your mind. But I hope you will remember this:
A man walking fast down a dark lonely street. Quick steps and hard breathing, all wonder and need. A bell above a door and the tinkle it makes. A clerk and a ladder and warm golden light, and then: the right book exactly, at exactly the right time.”
Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

“I read my email aloud to hear how it sounded, then I read it again in a British accent to make sure it didn’t come across as pretentious.”

“The more predictable you are, the better you will be at estimating how long something will take and the more promises you can make about your work.”
