Praise

“This fantastic introduction leaves us hungry for more.” —Entertainment Weekly

“It’s rare — but thrilling — to find a book that takes both generic conventions and historical accuracy seriously, as Alison Goodman’s delightful fantasy novel The Dark Days Club does.” —NPR

★ ”Delicious. . . . Lady Helen is a well-drawn heroine, and her struggle to free herself from the stilted life of an early 19th century noblewoman and embrace her wilder, darker self is powerfully delineated.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
 
★ ”Fast-paced, rich in description, with fascinating characters and excitement, this tale from Australian author Goodman will leave fantasy fans wanting more.” —School Library Journal, starred review
 
“[The Dark Days Club] takes off in a delightful way, juxtaposing the laced-up expectations of society against the newly stirring blood of a worthy heroine. . . . Try this with fans of genre twisters such as Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” —Booklist
 
“[Goodman’s] impeccable research shines through on every page . . . and brings to life questions of freedom and choice for women. Readers willing to embrace the deep, deliberately paced journey will find the pace and tension increasing until the end leaves them eager for the next volume.” —Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR ALISON GOODMAN:

 
“I literally held my breath through much of this exciting book as Eon walks a razor’s edge among powerful, plotting lords . . . I loved it. Can’t wait for the sequel!”—Tamora Pierce on Eon
 
*“This mesmerizing story begins where most novels end: in a tension-filled climactic event, in which the fate of the protagonist and a nation in the balance. Goodman catapults the reader headfirst into a pivotal moment in the Empire of the Celestial Dragons, a world so richly imagined that it feels real.”—Booklist , starred review for Eon
 
“One of those rare and welcome fantasies that complicate black-and-white morality.”—Kirkus Reviews on Eona
