PEDOPHILIA, CHILD TORTURE, CHILD RAPE, CHILD DEATH
I stayed up until 6:30 a.m. reading this book, so you know it's good!
This is the darkest book in the series so far.
It was like a Criminal Minds episode in Regency England, with Sebastian trying to solve the mystery in time to prevent more children from being kidnapped, tortured, raped, and murdered.
It was so unbelievably tense!!!
I've read some people complaining about the disappointing conclusion, but honestly it's just setting the events for the next book, which is usual for the series, but I for one cannot wait for justice to be done, I've rarely been so upset at a book villain.
Also, there is a new character who is so sketchy and obviously evil that I'm amazed they weren't immediately accused of... wrongdoings.
Be warned that, though not graphic, the themes in this book are extremely dark and difficult to read, so bear that in mind.
Still, I honestly cannot wait for the next one to come out!
