Product Details


“The fantasy/Regency/history mashup readers didn’t even know they wanted.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A fast-moving plot, intriguing paranormal elements, and a developing love triangle make this book hard to put down. Diverse, well-drawn supporting characters add depth, and readers will find it difficult not to root for the first female Reclaimer—a strong yet relatable protagonist.” —School Library Journal

“The attraction between Helen andCarlston is masterfully developed, and there is plenty of action and suspense to hook less romance-inclined readers as well. The last several chapters are a gripping headlong rush into a cliffhanger ending that promises more Lady Helen adventures to come.” —Booklist

Praise of Alison Goodman’s The Dark Days Club:

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

★ ”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 Weeklystarred 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 Journalstarred 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
