KEEP CALM AND STEAMPUNK ON
The whole of Victorian London knows there is something not quite right about the Lady Verity Hart. She may be the daughter of an MP and the sister of famed inventor Lord David Hart, but she is a spinster whose own father threatens to send her to the madhouse every fortnight. Because Society is correct-Verity Hart is no lady. If they suspected how quick with a quip she is, let alone the majority of her brother's ingenious machines were her design, the sale of fainting couches would double.
Verity requires one herself when her beloved brother is kidnapped by vampyres in the dead of night. With the aid of an aggravating, rude American bounty hunter with a secret of his own, Verity takes to land, sea, and even air to rescue the only person who could ever love and truly accept her. Or is he?Part Three of Five Includes:
Chapter Seven- A Wales of a Time
Chapter Eight- Freudian Slips
Chapter Nine- Fear of Falling
Chapter Ten- Do Not Look Down
Verity Hart VS The Vampyres: Part Three wasn't my favorite part ever but it was likable. I liked chapter 10 the best so far because there was a lot of action and you never know what might happen.
The thing that annoyed me a bit though was how lovestruck Verity was. It's not like it was insta-love or anything but it comes close. I just don't like the fact that she already knows she's in love with Jamie. Just no, thanks.
Other than that I still like this serial though. Verity and Jamie's journey is nice to read about and as always I love their interactions. Jamie says it as he sees it with no apology or anything. Just the way I like my men. Verity and Jamie fought a lot in this part. A lot. They're both just very frustrated with one another and I think Jamie should just give into what he wants.
All in all, part three was not the best but likable. Things escalated very fast and got intense also. So I can't wait to see where things are going next!
