Review: My Lady Quicksilver – Bec McMaster

Determined to destroy the Echelon she despises, Rosalind Fairchild is on seemingly easy mission. Get in. Uncover the secrets of her brother’s disappearance. And get out.

In order to infiltrate the Nighthawks and find their leader, Sir Jasper Lynch, Rosalind will pose as their secretary. But she doesn’t count on Lynch being such a dangerously charismatic man, challenging her at every turn, forcing her to re-evaluate everything she knows about the enemy.

He could be her most dangerous nemesisโ€”or the ally she never dreamed existed.
My thoughts:
This had to be my favorite in the series so far. I really liked reading about Rosalind aka Mercury and Lynch.
I am so torn. Yes the vampires are bad, but they are good ones too. Yes the humanists have a worthy cause, but some have done bad things. I do wonder how it will all turn out in the end…
Rosalind then, who is also Mercury, is the leader of the Humanists. She was resourceful and strong. Lynch was also strong and well he did not have to do much, I just thought he was such a hottie. He is the leader of the Nighthawks and plan to hunt down Mercury. Ohhh drama, sexy drama.
The world is cool, vampires ruling, humans are low class and food. A paranormal London and people are unhappy. But steampunk, eh, just that you give someone a mechanical hand does not steampunk make. Still it works as it is.
Conclusion:
There will be romance, danger and cool things to come

    Bec gets the best covers. I agree with you about the steampunk in her books, not really steampunk becauseI feel like the tidbits are added in merely as cosmetic. But the story is fun nonetheless!

    You said the magic words "sexy drama". Glad to hear the world is cool, I always like stories where vampires are in charge, but you're right this doesn't really sound like steampunk. Can't wait to meet Lynch!
