June 1812. Just weeks after her catastrophic coming-out ball, Lady Helen Wrexhall—now disowned by her uncle—is a full member of the demon-hunting Dark Days Club. Her mentor, Lord Carlston, has arranged for Helen and her maid, Darby, to spend the Summer Season in Bristol, where Helen can sharpen her Reclaimer powers. Then the long-term effects of Carlston's Reclaimer work takes hold and his sanity begins to slip. At the same time, Carlston's Dark Days Club colleague and nemesis will stop at nothing to bring Helen over to his side—and the Duke of Selburn is determined to marry her. The stakes are ever higher for Helen, and her decision will truly change the world...


Why I'm excited for this book:

The second book in the Lady Helen series, I loved the first book and I'm really looking forward to reading the sequel. It is described as Buffy meets a Jane Austen and while I did think the first book was a bit lacking in action, how it ended made me extremely excited for the Dark Days Pact. Now that Helen is coming into her powers more and has made her decision, I want to see how she and her powers change. I can't wait to read this book, I love the atmosphere, the romance, the era, the mysteries still to be solved, and the characters. If you haven't read the first book in this series, you definitely need to check it out!
