Veronica's last guardian has died and she is alone in the world. When she returns to her cottage after the funeral she finds a man ransacking it and she is rescued by a baron. They travel to London where the baron puts her under the protection of Stoker. The next morning the baron is dead--murdered and the plot thickens.
I enjoyed this book. I loved Veronica and Stoker. She is a kick-ass broad and Stoker learns early not to get in her way. Both have pasts and Veronica is always shocking Stoker with hers as she pulls his out of him.
The world building in the story is good. The mystery is good. The story is good. I hope some of the secondary characters remain in the series. I look forward to book 2.
