Waiting on Wednesday (#185): The Dark Days Pact by Alison Goodman


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:



The Dark Day Pact by Alison Goodman
Book Two of the Lady Helen series
Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers 
Publication Date: January 31, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads):

Summer, 1812. 
After the scandalous events at her presentation ball in London, Lady Helen has taken refuge at the fashionable seaside resort of Brighton, banished from her family and training as a Reclaimer with the covert Dark Days Club. She must learn to fight the dangerous energy-wielding Deceivers and prepare to face their master, the elusive Grand Deceiver. 

As she struggles to put aside her genteel upbringing, Helen realizes that her mentor, Lord Carlston, is fighting his own inner battle.  Has the foul Deceiver energy poisoned his soul, or is something else driving him towards violent bouts of madness? Either way, Helen is desperate to help the man with whom she shares a deep but forbidden connection.

When Mr. Pike, the hard bureaucratic heart of the Dark Days Club, arrives in Brighton, he has a secret mission for Helen: find the journal left by a mad rogue Reclaimer, before it falls into the hands of the Deceivers. Coerced by Pike, Helen has no choice but to do as ordered, knowing that the search for the journal may bring about Lord Carlston’s annihilation.



Yaaasss, I adored The Dark Days Club! I cannot wait to read this sequel novel. =)

  4. I didn't read the Dark Days Club, but this blurb for the second book has me rethinking that plan. It looks so good, maybe closer to Jan. I will read the first book.

  10. I am so out of the loop. This is the third WoW in a row where the pick is the second book in a series..... and I didn't even know it WAS a series! Once again, I have the first book on my tbr, but I haven't read it yet. Now I'll be adding this one to my tbr also. I really need to catch up! Too many books, not enough time.
