    1. I was pretty open about my obsession with Book 1 in the Lady Helene series, Dark Days Club, but HOLY HOT CROWS PEOPLE, Alison has written such an incredible sequel It s the perfect balance of suspense and romance and cross dressing and regency drama It picks up pretty soon after DDC left off, and we are plunged right back into Lady Helen s world of reclaimers and deceivers Lord Carlston is is usual broody, dangerous, fantastic self someone give that man a standalone series And the research in th [...]

    4. 3.5 stars I think your enthusiasm level for this sequel will be directly tied to how much you liked Carlston in the first book I just wasn t his biggest fan and kept waiting for Selburn to show up here while also weirdly hoping he turns out to be the Grand Deceiver whatever.If you don t remember the first book very well, this one sums up a lot of the basics when Helen explains the world to Delia The Compact is our agreement with the Deceivers It allows the creatures to feed upon human energy by [...]


    5. Actual rating 4.5 starsHow do you tell a sequel was good It is seen in the way a person can t contain their joy after finishing the book a restless energy that needs to be shared with a fellow bookworm view spoiler just like the fellow Reclaimers share their bond hide spoiler a startling realization, How am I going to survive till the next installment Desire to give a book the highest rating and praise it to convince friends to read it pff, 496 pages is nothing when the plot holds you in its gr [...]


    6. After reading and loving The Dark Days Club, I knew I would be devouring the sequel as soon as I could And when I saw The Dark Days Pact available, I legit screamed and downloaded it.Lady Helen is still just as awesome as she was before She s stronger this time around and I really enjoyed seeing her work out the new facets of her powers The rest of the gang is all here and they re definitely in for some changes.There are a lot of twists and revelations in this book and I was on the edge of my se [...]


    7. The Dark Days Pact is set in Brighton 1812 where Lady Helen will be spending the summer with Lord Carlston so she can continue her training to be a Reclaimer Part of her training is learning to disguise herself as a man convincingly since woman are restricted to the places they can go among other things Lady Helen is put in an interesting predicament when the Dark Days Club give her an assignment to find Benchley s journal and not to tell Lord Carlston who may be slipping into madness.That s as [...]


    8. WrensReads Review I m sorry but not sorry about the unpopular opinion that s about to be typed onto this review I cannot get on the Carlston fan wagon I am so team Selburn and I will forever dream of him winning the hand of Helen Carlson just is way to broody, which would usually work for me but man is he a guard dog Selburn is was still is too but his isn t as like animalistic to me I m not sure All I know is Carlston is still technically married and that should be a red flag to Helen.The Dark [...]


    9. An Advance Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review Quotes have been pulled from an ARC and may be subject to change.We re back in the Regency Era with Helen and Carleston The second book usually ends up being the filler, but even though this was the second in the series, it didn t feel like that The book progresses along and even if it was a little slow, I still enjoyed it There s so much to digest, that you won t be able to put this book down I just love Goodman s writing She write [...]


    10. I really enjoyed this sequel I loved the development of the characters and the darkness of the story The plot definitely picked up in this one.


    11. Rating 4.5 StarsI think The Dark Days Pact might be my favorite of all Alison Goodman s novels to date This sequel picks up promptly where The Dark Days Club left off with Lady Helen in Bath for the summer, having been cast aside by her aunt and uncle Now that Helen has discovered that she is a Reclaimer, she is under the tutelage of Lord Carleston as he trains her to join the Dark Days Club But nothing is quite as it seems Lord Carleston is prone to illness, a strange Lord Pike is stirring trou [...]


    12. Well I was in denial for a while, but now with the cover officially up on I can safely say I ll be opting for the ePubBut I totally respect people who still plan on buying the physical copy, not everyone is a picky judgmental about covers and consistency as me lol Yup it really seems like they re going with the plans for a cover change Which means they failed me, Vikings books why did you fail me I m just over here praying that the VikingBooks doesn t go through with their decision to add cover [...]


    13. 4,8 5 stars Loved it The Dark Days Pact is even better than its predecessor there s so much action, no slower parts like in book one This novel is deliciously dark and suspenseful, gripping and ominous I love the beautiful writing style and rich world the amount of research Alison Goodman has done for this series is simply astounding I also couldn t help but notice the amazing character development Lady Helen has gone through in this book I loved her in The Dark Days Club already, but now she e [...]


    14. This was so so sooooo much better than the first one which was also incredible and while I ll probably never get around to properly reviewing this, EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ IT RIGHT NOW OR START THE SERIES IF YOU HAVEN T ALREADY.


    15. I ll have to come back with a in depth review when I m awake , but just know I LOVE THIS BOOK and this is now a firm favourite series of mine.


    16. The second instalment goes a little deeper into the characters, and shows us some of Helen s physical training so she can take on her role as a Reclaimer I enjoyed Helen s chafing to get started, all the while having to learn about the restrictions placed on her behaviours in this role, thanks to her oath to the Crown These restrictions often conflicting with the already ridiculous societal restrictions placed on gentlewomen I found it amusing and understandable that Darby was better able to und [...]


    17. This book has definitely pulled me out of my reading slump I managed to get through it in only two days, and like with all sequels, I regret putting it off It followed a similar pacing structure to the first book, my review of which, you can read here, and subsequently, I liked the first half a lot than the secondeven though that s where all the action is I ve just read a bunch of regency fiction for one of my university modules happening next semester and so the day to day goings of of the hig [...]


    18. I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher This in no way impacted on my view.The Dark Days Club was one of my favourite books I read last year Goodman managed to perfectly recreate the Regency Era, adding her own twist with the Reclaimers I was dying to get my hands on the sequel, and as soon as my copy arrived, I dove straight in.In The Dark Days Pact, Helen is recovering from the fall out of her coming out ball For the summer, she s fled to Bristol, in order to get away from the gos [...]


    19. London, 1812 To Lady Helen, My dearest friend, I have been following your adventures with anticipation for quite some time now When you told me of a secret society that vanquished demons hiding among the populace, no one was thrilled than me that you were to be a part of it I lived vicariously through your missives for a while, and I was proud to call you a friend.Then, of course, we could not communicate for a few months, and I must confess, some of the details of your trials slipped my mind I [...]


    20. Lady Helen s story continues in this Regency Urban Fantasy.Lady Helen Wrexhall has moved to Brighton and is staying with the household of Lord Carleston and training as a Reclaimer However Carleston is becoming increasingly unstable and the hostile leadership of the Home Office is against him, including disbelief in the very real threat of a Grand Deceiver Lady Helen herself still chafes against the strictures of being a woman in Regency society and how it conflicts with her role as a Reclaimer. [...]


    21. Having enjoyed the first book, I had high expectations for this novel, and I am happy to say that all were met 0 Goodman gives us another compelling and intense story Once the Regency setting is portrayed by a plethora of true historical details, from figures and places Brighton shines to clothing and how to wear it, and many tiny little touches that depict a vivid, colourful, and believable world This instalment felt a lot tenser, and this was not just because of the thrilling scenes The stak [...]


    22. SOMEHOW BETTER THAN THE FIRST BOOK I love Helen so so much and I just want to hold her to my bosom and CARLSTON IS EVEN MORE CARLSTON 2 CARLSTON 2 FURIOUS ETC This is still such a slowburn romance wise butewwwwwwwwwwwwww the wheels finally start rolling and oh man I LOVE HAMMOND AND DARBY AND QUINN AND DELIA Everyone is amazing Someone hold me.Also, I cried It s just such a TENSE book The whole thing is tense The ending is AMAZING Book three will be even better Hats off to Goodman, AGAIN.


    23. Hm while this is still as compulsively readable as the first Lady Helen novel, I didn t like it quite as much A lot of that has to do with the main plot, which has the members of the Dark Days Club dealing with problems that they somehow all have to keep secret from one another I found it confusing after awhile, and somewhat stressful to read I think I also personally reacted to the misogynistic undertones present in the sequel, like view spoiler the threat of bonding with Lowry hanging over He [...]


    24. Such a great sequel I might have even liked this one MORE than The Dark Days Club In fact, I know I did I also kinda maybe sorta think my theory about the Grand Deceiver is wrong now, which I m kind of glad of because that would ve taken the story in a direction that I didn t like And I really do love the pickle that Lady Helen finds herself in at the end of the book, though I have all the hope that it ll work out in her favor She is the Grand Reclaimer, after all


    25. OH MY GOD THAT WAS INTENSE I NEED TO CALM DOWN ALSO I HATE SELBURN SO MUCH CAN HE LEAVE ALREADY AND STAY FAR AWAY FROM HELEN


    26. The Lady Helen series by Alison Goodman is such a fantastic underrated historical fantasy book series and this sequel is just as good, if not better than book one If you like Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame Smith, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Grimm, or The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare, you need to meet Lady Helen and Lord Carlston I can t wait for book three


    27. The mix of a historical setting with the scandalous magic of Deceivers was once again masterfully combined I m hooked for



    28. GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH view spoiler A mio KILL ME NOW AND TATTOO THOSE WORDS ON MY SOUL AND THEN KILL ME AGAIN hide spoiler
