The thrilling sequel to Sharon Cameron’s blockbuster gothic steampunk romance, THE DARK UNWINDING, will captivate readers anew with mystery and intrigue aplenty.
When Katharine Tulman wakes in the middle of the night and accidentally foils a kidnapping attempt on her uncle, she realizes Stranwyne Keep is no longer safe for Uncle Tully and his genius inventions. She flees to Paris, where she hopes to remain undetected and also find the mysterious and handsome Lane, who is suspected to be dead.
But the search for Lane is not easy, and Katharine soon finds herself embroiled in a labyrinth of political intrigue. And with unexpected enemies and allies at every turn, Katharine will have to figure out whom she can trust–if anyone–to protect her uncle from danger once and for all.
Filled with deadly twists, whispering romance, and heart-stopping suspense, this sequel to THE DARK UNWINDING whisks readers off on another thrilling adventure.
As it usually goes, A Spark Unseen was a wonderful novel, but it didn’t quite capture me in the same way its predecessor did. The Dark Unwinding started out slow, as I mentioned in my review, but it did eventually pick up quite pleasantly. A Spark Unseen started out slow… And stayed slow. The whole book just felt, slow. The writing style was much more developed, which was great! It kept it’s beautiful flare, and kept me intrigued enough to finish the book, but overall, A Spark Unseen didn’t seem to have as much as a plot as I would have like.
That said, I did thoroughly enjoy it! It was a great addition to The Dark Unwinding, and though unlikely, I hope to see more stories with Lane and Katherine in the future.
I give A Spark Unseen 4 out of 5 stars.
