“It’s London 1812 like you’ve never seen it: with demonic creatures and theirslayers. Lady Helen Wrexhall takes the Buffy-esque role in The Dark DaysClub …Helen has to fight between two sides of herself as a proper lady and a kickbutt slayer. Feminists swoon!” —

“A nail-bitingly exciting story of espionage and gallantry, with a horribly well-imagined demonic element.” —Jane Austen’s Regency World Magazine
“[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

“Goodman’s research is evident as interesting details are revealed concerning the time period’s social, environmental, and political issues …The paranormal aspect of Helen’s world is well-conceived.” —VOYA
