Lucy Sinclair’s debut will be a parade of everything opulent Edwardian London society has to offer. Most importantly, it will be nothing like her older sister’s dangerous experience—especially if her overprotective brother-in-law, Lord Thornewood, has his way. As if screening her dance partners isn’t enough, Thornewood insists that his brother, James, train Lucy in self-de ...more

I absolutely adored Jessica Leake's first novel, ARCANA, and I loved this follow-up novel just as much (if not more!) It was so wonderful to visit with all the characters I loved so much in the first book, and THE ORDER OF THE ETERNAL SUN expands greatly on the world established in ARCANA.

Lucy Sinclair is making her big debut in London Society. Everything is going well - her presentation to the King and Queen is as wondrous as she hoped - and her brother-in-law, Lord Thornewood, is scritinizing everyone and everything to make sure that she's protected from The Order of the Eternal Sun. Yet, Lord Alexander Radcliffe, Earl of Devonshire, manages to attend her debut ball, unknown and uninvited, managing to steal her heart - and exposing her to danger - all in one slick move.

To her dismay, James Thornewood appeared at the end of Lucy's fencing lesson .  She hadn't seen the gallant brother of her brother-in-law in three years...Of course he would attend her coming out debut. She tried to hide the embarrassment  over the memory of the stolen kiss and his abrupt departure after he had revealed error undying love for him. Now she must endure the awkwardness of not only seeing him again  but to live in the same house until after the Ball. Must they feel so awkward?  Coul ...more

Fun with a fast original pace !

I've liked the characters...all of them! Jeassica Leake has created a great family with strong women who have mind of their own and are not afraid to take risks. It's intriguing, light and amusing.

Spending time with the personnages, I've discovered an interesting stories with powers and a fantastic world. I've also appreciated the description of England at the begin of the XXe century.
There is romance, betrayal, fights and drama. The perfect combinaison to enjoy a

It was fun to return to the Edwardian/Sylvan worlds with some of the same characters! I wasn't quite as immersed in this one as the first, but it was a fun read.

Once upon a time, Jessica Leake was a psychotherapist, but even though she loved her clients, she couldn't stop writing. She wrote and wrote until she got her first book published, and then she wrote some more. In between all that writing she had four beautiful and hilarious children with her husband (best friend and man she's known since high school; also hilarious), moved back to her adopted hom ...more
