Praise for The Lady’s Step
“A fast-paced murder mystery with a divine twist… a must for fans of the Klaereon Saga!”–J.Kathleen Cheney, author of The Golden City series
“A supernatural mystery set in the grimy streets of 1800’s London, Carlo Borgia must face his past to confront his future. Carlo’s drive to restore his family makes his goals endearing. You can’t help but turn the page, hoping he’ll succeed. A trail of murder combined with a straightlaced detective makes for some interesting twists and turns that keep the questions going. Intrigue galore.” — E.M. Markoff, author of the Ellderet series.
The timing could not be worse. It is the eve of Gregorius Klaereon’s Trial. Carlo Borgia sees all the seeds of disaster in Greg’s fight with Horus, but the message he’s been waiting on for 14 years has finally come. A bookseller has found a spell for Carlo to make his way back to Duat, to see if his beloved Lucy and his good friends Drusus and Octavia have survived. Carlo has every confidence he can return in time for Greg’s Trial. When he arrives in London, however, Carlo finds the bookseller dead and the book missing. Worse, Detective August Sorrell of Scotland Yard is certain Carlo is the murderer. The clock is ticking as Carlo evades the police, searches for the book, and investigates the murder himself, only to find players from his own past are acting in the shadows.
