Dark Days Pact Review and Giveaway

I’m very excited today to be the next tour stop on The Dark Days Pact blog tour!


I loved The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman and was thrilled to be part of the second book’s blog tour. Let’s take a look at The Dark Days Pact.


Summer, 1812.
After the scandalous events at her presentation ball in London, Lady Helen has taken refuge at the fashionable seaside resort of Brighton, banished from her family and training as a Reclaimer with the covert Dark Days Club. She must learn to fight the dangerous energy-wielding Deceivers and prepare to face their master, the elusive Grand Deceiver.


As she struggles to put aside her genteel upbringing, Helen realizes that her mentor, Lord Carlston, is fighting his own inner battle.  Has the foul Deceiver energy poisoned his soul, or is something else driving him towards violent bouts of madness? Either way, Helen is desperate to help the man with whom she shares a deep but forbidden connection.


When Mr. Pike, the hard bureaucratic heart of the Dark Days Club, arrives in Brighton, he has a secret mission for Helen: find the journal left by a mad rogue Reclaimer, before it falls into the hands of the Deceivers. Coerced by Pike, Helen has no choice but to do as ordered, knowing that the search for the journal may bring about Lord Carlston’s annihilation.

 Review: Lady Helen is back and as fantastic as ever. Last we saw her she had been disowned by her Uncle and staying with Lady Margaret and Mr. Hammond while training with the ever hot Lord Carlston to transform into her role as a Reclaimer.

Helen is now studying the ways to be a man so she can masquerade herself as one to train as a Reclaimer. Most of the story is with Helen trying to retrieve Benchley’s journal and incognito as a man. The powers Helen has are exceptional with speed, strength and and the ability to heal quickly…she’s like Wolverine!
Goodwin does an excellent job as describing the vivd environment and clothing of Regency England. Her words flow with such epic creativity in a delicious world full historical fantasy. You won’t stop until you’re finished.
Should you read this? Yes! This was a suburb sequel that leaves me wanting more. When an ending hurts you know the book was good.

  1. Eek!! I LOVE your Pinterest board for this series! I love anything in the Victorian age, so that may be why I love it so much. I also love the *intimate*pictures as well haha. I have yet to read The Dark Days Club, but I’ve had it on my TBR for a LONG time. I need to read it soon for sure.
