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 Five of Five Includes:
Chapter Thirteen- To the Manor Born, then Dead, then Undead
Chapter Fourteen- The Gloves Come Off
Verity Hart Vs The Vampyres: Part Five was brilliant! The last two parts were a bit less for me but I really liked this final part. It was full of action, witty banter and finally Jamie came to his senses. What more could I have wanted?
What I loved the most in this part was, of course, Verity finally being reunited with her brother, David. About time, right? I'm so glad he's safe. I just love him and Verity. They have this relationship where they take care of each other and it's just really sweet. I wish I could've read more about him. I hope he gets his happy ending too.
Verity was brilliant in this last part. I love her wit and how she knows she isn't a lady and owns it. She's really a heroine I'd love to see more in books. And I love her complete trust in Jamie and how she knows he loves her back even though he couldn't admit it to himself yet. Like Jamie would say; she's one hell of a woman.
And Jamie... what more can I say about him. He's awesome. Even though sometimes he needs a little push by Verity.
Overall, the finaly part in this serial was the best so far. I loved the action, romance and chemistry between Verity and Jamie. I would definitely recommend every part for people who love steampunk, paranormal creatures excellent writing and storytelling and strong heroines. It's been so amazing to be able to read and review these stories. I'm a fan for sure!
