    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. ...

    *Source* Library *Genre* Young Adult, Paranormal, Occult & Supernatural *Rating* 3.5-4 *Thoughts* The Dark Days Deceit, by author Alison Goodman, is the third and final installment in the Lady Helen series. This series is set in 1812, during what is called the Regency Era. ...

    Three years after blowing my mind with The Dark Days Club and almost two years after nearly breaking my heart with the disappointing follow-up The Dark Days Pact, Alison Goodman returns to her gorgeously drawn and demon-rich version of Regency England to conclude the story of Lady Hele...

    Wow...this was so disappointing that it was actually a struggle to read, and that's after I rated the first two books 4 stars each, which is rare for me. I think the trouble actually started in The Dark Days Pact, which seemed to drag on for a good couple hundred pages than was necessa...

    I feel like brevity alone condemns this. I have nothing to say: this was predictable, glacially paced, and boring. ...

    This is the third and final book in a trilogy that's best described as: Jane Austen meets Buffy. A Regency lady discovers that she is one of the few people able to fight and kill demons, which take over human bodies and feed on souls. With the help of her mentor, the brooding Lord Carl...

    This is one of my absolute favorite YA series. It combines the supernatural with a historical setting and gives off serious Buffy vibes, and although I wasn't ready to see it end, I absolutely love how it went out with a bang. I've long suspected who the ultimate villain was and it wa...

    The Dark Days Deceit is the final book in the Lady Helen series by Alison Goodman and if you haven?t read the first two books yet, I?m not sure we can still be friends?just kidding?kind of. I really do wish more people I know would read these books because I love them, and they...

    My feelings toward Goodman right now... I'm Gonna Fight You GIF from Fistfight GIFs I am so disappointed. Here are the reasons why: 1. Completely predictable. I knew who the Grand Deceiver (wait...let me repeat the phrase 20 million more times like in the book) b/c there was no wa...

    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 th...

    Another favorite series delivers a low blow, crushing my girlish hopes of the epic finale and heartstopping romance. What do you expect from a series that ended previously on a high note of girlish squicks and dancing around the room? Right. You expect epic conclusion. You expect t...

    EDIT, January 21st, 2017 --- Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh. This book is incredibly far away. HOW can I wait, after that ending (The Dark Days Pact)!? Tell me it isn't so... Book One - The Dark Days Club - was sooooooo good! I need the sequel, and this one! ...

    Ooops! Big error. I just read book three before reading book 2. Oh well, no point going back and reading book 2 now because I know what happens ? So, just review book 3 anyway. It was pretty good and it rounded up all the loose ends. It seemed a little long but I was happy with t...

    Listen. With this last book being published in a handful of months and the trilogy being soon complete, I?m going to need way more people to read the series because it is an underrated gem and EVERYONE IS SLEEPING ON IT. So here?s my plea: Get on it. Please. I?m sitting here, ...

    Goodman finally offers us a great conclusion to this urban fantasy. Once more, the early nineteenth century setting of Bath is painted in many, historically correct, details. This is something that has always impressed me, namely the amount of work the author has had to do to gathe...

    This had a lot of elements I enjoyed, starting with the little details of Regency life of the English gentry, and of Bath in the early 1800s. I liked the way Alison Goodman contrasted all the rules governing the gentry's interactions with the urgent needs of the member of the Dark Days...

    Better than book 2 but worse than Book 1. I still love Darby the most. And her relationship w/ Quinn is just the sweetest. Also, I appreciate seeing Helen's aunt being so supportive in this book. However, Helen and Lord Carlston have become rather lackluster as individuals and as a...

    I loved Alison Goodman?s writing in the first two books; but bloody hell, the final instalment of the Lady Helen trilogy was a huge disappointment. I?ll share more of my thoughts later on. PS. I still love Lord Carlston! Lady Helen, on the other hand, can go lick Julia Robe...

    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 gown...

    1) The Dark Days Club ????? 2) The Dark Days Pact ????? "You are my heartbeat. My pulse. You are the fire in my blood and the laughter in my soul." This trilogy is the best Victorian YA fantasy I read. I had an amazing time and once I finished to read the fir...

    The Dark Days Deceit was everything I had hoped it would be, and so much more! It was thrilling, heart pounding, and oh so satisfying! Over 530 pages, and I read it in one sitting, it was so good! It was a perfect end to my favorite trilogy, and dare I say, quite possibly lined things ...

    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...
