My ReviewFirstly, I'd like to mention how beautifully written this story is. I was enthralled with the author's writing from the very first page. Sharon Sant certainly is a talented one!
The actual story was something that really piqued my interest. I do love stories that are set in the Victorian era and for the life of me, cannot understand why I don't read more of them! I'm also a lover of books aimed at young adults so this one certainly held my fascination. Oh and of course there's magic. I'm a sucker for books containing magic ;)
The moment I started reading, I was eager to learn more about the child found on the heathland in the middle of a cold, stormy night. )What a wonderful beginning, right?) And I was never disappointed at any stage during the story - in fact I found myself on the edge of my seat throughout.
I particularly loved the banter between Isaac and Polly - and could quite easily picture them teasing one another in this era. They were written so well - I'd love to read more about their story, what happens to them after Storm Child, for example? I'm also eager to find out what happens to Charlotte and her family after this book too. I wonder if the author has any plans for a sequel? Or perhaps a spin-off? I cetainly hope so! All in all, a wonderful read.
Fearing for Georgina’s safety, Annie is faced with a terrible choice: she can try to guard her sister from the ever-present threat of Ernesto, or she can leave the child out in the wilds of the New Forest in the hope she’ll be found and taken in by a new family, ignorant of her powers. Annie chooses to leave Georgina’s future to chance and steals her away from Ernesto’s house in the dead of night.
But Annie’s troubles are far from over as her actions set in motion a chain of events that will take her and Georgina into danger she could never imagine. This danger drags country girl, Charlotte Harding into the fray and threatens every one of the teenagers, and it leads them right into the heart of the powerful organisation responsible for the assassination of Queen Victoria, an organisation that wants only one thing: Hell on Earth – quite literally…
