I usually read historical romance novels her 'Fairchild' series is outstanding , but once in a while branch out to other genres. Well, this book is historical, does have romance in the plot, but it is mainly a mystery thriller, and I absolutely loved it. Kept me on the edge of my seat with twists and turns, but there is so much more going on.
The characters' interactions and relationships are intense I am a huge fan of Jaima Fixsen's, and was thrilled to receive an ARC of this, her newest book. The characters' interactions and relationships are intense and beautifully written, the plot is outrageous but plausible, and the ending - well, it ties up all the loose ends, but leaves you wanting to read more about these intriguing players in this very electrifying story.
I can't wait for the next book in this series. I received an advance reader copy of this book, and have decided to leave an honest review.

This engrossing mystery is chock full of murder, mayhem, espionage, and thrills. I can't wait for the next book! Aug 13, Peg Price rated it liked it Shelves: light-mysteries. Interesting setting amid intrigue. Not a big fan of romantic mysteries. Sep 02, Vivienne rated it it was amazing.
Too late! I read the first couple of pages and I was lost, completely hooked, and stayed that way until I had finished. Vienna in is a hotbed of spies, intrigues, and dalliances. Heads of State, diplomats, and everyone with a grievance and hopes of some reparation are crowding into Vienna for the Congress after decades of war.
Kasper has his own reasons for finding the murderer and there are a number of people, both male and female who had reason to kill the count as he was a thoroughly unsavoury man. There is a vein of humour lurking within the writing and the characters are many and varied and are brought to life by the author with all the complexities of real people.
The city is well-described from the great palaces and churches to the mean little alleys and has obviously been as thoroughly researched as the historical setting of the story. This story is one that I lost myself in and one I will read again. Memorable characters, history woven into the fabric of the story, intelligent, talented writing, a great suspenseful story. What more could a reader possibly want?

It was very mystery-like but still fast paced enough to belong to the 'thriller' genre. The twist ending of Sophia, the count's wife, being the killer was perfect. This book does not do that. I didn't have the count's wife on my personal suspect list Levi was my 1 , but there were still clues to The plot for this book was amazing. I didn't have the count's wife on my personal suspect list Levi was my 1 , but there were still clues to support her being the killer.
Another thing I liked about the book were the characters. Every character was 3 dimensional, even the count, who died in the second chapter. Klara is sorta a tesseract a cube inside of a cube since she is 2 completely different people. To conclude, this book is definitely worth picking up. The setting is beautifully detailed, the characters are believable, and the plot is fast paced with some awesome twists.
I can't wait for the sequel. View 1 comment. Feb 23, bibliolatry rated it it was amazing Shelves: historical-fiction. One of the best books I've read in a very long time! I started reading this book because I enjoyed Jaima Fixsen's other books, and I am interested in anything related to the Vienna Congress. I never expected to be so thoroughly drawn in by this book, and was exceptionally pleased by the quality of the writing, the characters, the setting, the whole mood!
I loved the characters and felt as if I knew them personally.

Better than anticipated, that is for sure. Can not wait to read the next novel. Having known Rachel for many years I was excited and so proud to hear that she had finally seen her dream to fruition and published her first novel. So as her good friend I was eager to get my hands on it. Finally in July I got my hands on a copy and my heart sank as I read the blurb. We moved your item s to Saved for Later.
