A solid series opener. 3/5 stars.

This review was originally posted on my book blog.

I'm partial to stories set in the Victorian period, a mystery and original characters, and The House on Half Moon Street promised all three.

The descriptions of Victori

Stephen King
“Some of this book—perhaps too much—has been about how I learned to do it. Much of it has been about how you can do it better. The rest of it—and perhaps the best of it—is a permission slip: you can, you should, and if you're brave enough to start, you will. Writing is magic, as much the water of life as any other creative art. The water is free. So drink. Drink and be filled up. ”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Jane Austen
“You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope...I have loved none but you.”
Jane Austen, Persuasion

Emma Lazarus
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
Emma Lazarus

H.G. Wells
“We should strive to welcome change and challenges, because they are what help us grow. With out them we grow weak like the Eloi in comfort and security. We need to constantly be challenging ourselves in order to strengthen our character and increase our intelligence. ”
H.G. Wells, The Time Machine

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“I wasn't actually in love, but I felt a sort of tender curiosity.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
