Of the three Lockwell sisters--romantic Lily, prophetic Rose, and studious Ivy--all agree that it's the eldest, the book-loving Ivy, who has held the family together ever since their father's retreat into his silent vigil in the library upstairs. Everyone blames Mr. Lockwell's malady on his magickal studies, but Ivy alone still believes--both in magic and in its power to bring her father back. After tragedy strikes, Ivy takes a job with the reclusive Mr. Quent in a desperate effort to preserve her family. It's only then that she discovers the fate she shares with a jaded young nobleman named Dashton Rafferdy, his ambitious friend Eldyn Garritt, and a secret society of highwaymen, revolutionaries, illusionists, and spies who populate the island nation of Altania.--From publisher description.… (mere)

An attempt at Jane Austen with magic, I think. The worldbuilding felt a bit off. For instance, day and night lengths vary but how is that possible and why is it important?
Overall interesting but not wholly satisfying. ( )

I really liked this book and wish I had read it earlier, I got it as a SantaThing gift 10 years ago and finally decided to read it off the TBR and it was great. This is actually the kind of book I'd write if I had the ability.

The new world is very Victorian and much of the history is 'similar' but the world itself is quite a bit different. We follow 3 main characters as they pass into adulthood and in the growing up, save the world. I'm going to have to get and read the next 2 books in the series much sooner than 10 years! ( )

This book reminded me of "Jane Eyre" not just because of the writing - but the plot - a little - a VERY little. I really enjoyed it... I like strong female characters and the main character in this book is certainly that. A Great story for people who like more "classic" literature but might want to venture into the realm of "fantasy". ( )

This was recommended to me by a coworker, and we usualy have very similar tastes. She absolutely loved this book, and I found it waaaay too slow. It did pick up in the middle, but it dipped down again near the end. I found a lot of the character plots were left unresolved, and I have no desire to read book 2. ( )
