I found this book far to long-winded and religious for my liking and it felt as though the author had not even bothered to research prior to picking up pen. I tried to slog my way through but in the end gave up and sold the book at a book exchange. Don't bother touching this book unless you like dull and time consuming 'spooky' stories aimed at 50 year olds.show more

It's has been awhile since I've read a gothic fantasy and I don't remember being this entertained reading a book in this genre as much as I was reading Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker. I enjoyed how Ms. Hieber prose could make me feel the anticipation of that first touch and the thrill of that first kiss. I was transported to a Victorian London, during the terrible reign of Jack the Ripper. I could hear the clip-clop of the horse hooves echoing down the street, see the ghosts along the streets and feel the eeriness that always seem to accompany the evenings in London. Since I've read this book, I've even caught myself thinking in Victorian speak, it had that much of an impact on me.rnrnIt was truly a pleasure reading Ms. Hieber's tender love story with her version of Greek mythology mixed with the paranormal. The plot was well rounded and the ending gives you a nice closure but I have a few questions lingering that I hope will be answered in the next book. Your not going to find anything too terribly dark or forbidding in this book, though the evil ones were evil enough to fulfill their part in the setting of this book. It was a wonderful journey reading this book and I'm looking forward to next book in this series. Yes, I would definitely recommend this book.rnrnIf your still not sure about reading this book, I suggest that you head over to Leanna Renee Hieber's website and read the prologue and excerpts. I was hooked from reading just the prologue and I'm betting you will be too.show more
