The Dark Days Deceit Reviews
Actual rating: 4.5/5 stars. Lord Carlston for life.
Infinity of stars for Alison and her Lady Helen series.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this series. It's my favourite in the whole world (right after Harry Potter, but, you can't really count Harry, because it wouldn't be fair). It has everything: awesome heroine, society events, beautiful gowns, evil creatures, fighting, saving the world, romance, chivalrous Lords and charismatic Dukes.
If I had one realistic Christmas wish which could come true, it would be so Lady Helen books get more attention and are tr ...more
What a brilliant finale to one of my favorite series - The Dark Days Deceit was everything I wanted and more. Everything came together satisfyingly, with some great plot twists and revelations that made me cry both sad and happy tears. It's clear how much Helen and the others have gone through since the first book, and how much she, especially, has grown.
Her relationship with Carlston has evolved too, and it was joy to read about their interactions - not only because of the aching slow burn rom ...more
While I wasn't a fan of the first two book covers, I quite like this one.
ALSO, it's the FINALE. Be still, my heart.
If Carlston and Helen don't get together, THERE WILL BE WORDS. If one of them dies, THERE WILL BE ANGRY WORDS.
OMG!!! Wow! What a twist. I didn't see that coming. So, yeah...this was a great end to the trilogy. Fast paced and really no slow or boring part. Lady Helen and Lord Carlston are amazing characters. Believable, likable, and feel like friends. I got emotionally involved in the story and kept yelling or talking very firmly to the Duke or Lady Helen. Not every book brings that out in me. I am so glad I read this trilogy and highly recommend it.
GUYS! IT HAS A TITLE NOW! And she's gave us a release month! Alison hasn't updated her blog yet but you can go on her socials and see! I will honestly buy LD3 the day it is released. I will probably dedicate two days just to reading it. Maybe 3 since it will be the longest (and last) of the series. I am honestly so exicted and counting down the days until I can get this book!
A year away?! I guess it could be worse. I honestly can't wait to get my hands on this book! The ending to th ...more
While I still really enjoyed this book and read it in a single day, it was definitely my least favourite in the series. The magic system goes pretty much haywire here, there's a lot that I was confused about and most importantly: while I love a good slow burning romance, I also want that to properly pay off and that decidedly did not happen here in my opinion. You think I read three books about these characters to be happy with a single page of romantic conclusion? Nope.
This is still one of my f ...more
Really enjoyed this trilogy and the ending was satisfying, although I really wanted an epilogue, it felt a bit abrupt. Also, (view spoiler)[ it was so obvious who one-half of the Grand Deceiver was (I wasn't expecting the other). I didn't think it could be this person because it was so obvious but it actually was. And I wanted more of the friendship between Hammond and Helen, it didn't progress in this book. (hide spoiler)]
