The Crimson Inkwell


Magic exists where we cannot see.

It lives in unexplained phenomena, in attraction to strangers,

In a pen and crimson inkwell, from a trunk, in a tent, at a fair, in the fog.




I will not spoil the twists that this book takes you on, but I will just say it was a very fun and surprising read. It managed to take on of those tropes I find so infuriating in a romance and turn it into several fantastic moments in the story. If you enjoy Dr. Who style whimsy or enjoyed reading, 'The Night Circus' by Erin Morgenstern, I think you will adore, 'The Crimson Inkwell.'

Jeanette Andromeda,

A magical fanfare of a woman who knows her own mind and sparkling romance, The Crimson Inkwell is a modern, gothic Victorian delight.

Charlotte Zang,

Twists and turns galore. Happy, sad, and then wow. Not the expected ending. I want a book 2, hopefully soon.

It is unusual to find a book written nowadays that adheres to the style of a Victorian novel while successfully including elements of questionable magic and basic police procedure. The female protagonist is a strong intelligent character, and each of the three male principals very well defined but very different. The author certainly will keep you guessing.
