The Dark Days Pact
The Dark Days Pact | Alison Goodman
Sequel to New York Times bestselling author Alison Goodman's acclaimed The Dark Days Club--a smashing combination of Buffy and Jane Austen! 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.

I love the concept - pretty much Buffy in the Regency period, and better done than the other series I've read with a similar premise. The supporting characters are interesting, and I'm enjoying watching the protagonist Lady Helen develop.

Unfortunately Alison Goodman has fallen into the YA love triangle trope, and I had a bit of trouble connecting with the writing style in this book (maybe just a mood thing). Still a medium pick for me. 3.75⭐

Current read! ❤️ Who loves the Dark Days Club? 🙋🏻‍♀️ I‘m almost finished with this one. I‘m debating about diving straight into Dark Days Deceit but I may wait till closer to release in November. I think it‘s going to depend on how this one ends. 😉 What are you currently reading? What do you recommend I pick up next? 📚 Happy Sunday! ☀️

I can't wait until I can read this! This is the sequel and since this is the year I'm reading sequels... anyway, the first book was akin to a Pride & Prejudice meets Shadowhunters so while it's a YA historical fiction with demons... it has a more grown up feeling to it and some parallels to P&P!

The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman follows the story of Lady Helen, a coming-of-age young woman in regency England who is preparing to make her debut into high society but instead of facing marriage proposals she's facing monsters, magic and the terrible history her mother left behind.
I was SO not prepared to like this book as much as I did. It's silly in a good way and thoroughly researched. It does get slow at points, however, so 4/5 stars.

So I've had Litsy for pretty much a year now, and I always think of moving over here when Instagram is being crappy. But this is my first time actually posting! We'll see how it goes.
I absolutely loved Lady Helen and the Dark Days Pact. Alison Goodman is my new favourite historical fiction author!

Wow, great sequel to the original! And I'm happy to find that she is currently writing book 3 as there were several threads left dangling at the end of this one. LOTS of action, adventure, a few dark parts, angst and romance...at 480+ pages, a little bit of everything. Glad I discovered this series! #romantsy #osrbc

This continuation of Lady Helen's story gets off to a bit of a slow start, but ends up just as engaging as the first. A darkly fun adventure with interesting characters, delightful period details about the Brighton Season, and vivid descriptions of the supernatural elements.

The supernatural, demon-hunting side of things is slightly less prominent in this one with more of the focus on conspiracy and secrets -- but there's plenty of action too.

The flow was much quicker than the first and the characters really grew in leaps and bounds. There was more focus on them, allowing one to get to know them better and a few new ones were introduced as well. The action at the end really kicked into high gear, which was awesome. I can't wait for the next book!

This one was a bit of a slow starter for me. I definitely liked book one better, but it ended up being enjoyable follow up. Lots of action in the middle and at the end. Love the pairing of Regency England with the strange world of reclaimers and deceivers! I look forward to the next book!

I was ready to bail on this, only sticking it out because I had really liked how Goodman had written Lady Helen in the first book in the series. The last 1/4 of the book was the only part that didn't drag. Not sure I'll bother with the next installment when it comes out.

Here's what's up for me in March! Most of these are library reads, so I'll need to be faithful to this list as I don't want to miss out on any of them. I'm probably most excited about THE DARK DAYS PACT.

I didn't know when I bought it off Amazon that I was buying from a business that does job training & employment for people with special needs and disabilities. I will always browse their shop first on Amazon from this point on when buying books. #ya

This book was good. I loved reading about a strong female in 1812 overcoming men and monsters, and sometimes both! Helen was one of my fave characters from last year and the sequel just adds to the good. Darby is loyal, Hammond is a new friend, and the relationship between LH and Lord Carlston grew by 10. It was fantastic and fun and an awesome sequel to an awesome series. I needed girl power right now, especially in the face of impossible odds!

The second in Alison Goodman's YA Regency fantasy trilogy is as good as the first, combining action and great period research that incorporates actual events and historical characters but the love triangle is too obviously skewered, Lady Helen is irritatingly impetuous at times and the age of the protagonists makes me wonder if this is actually New Adult rather than YA.

TheBookDream Oh no it's a trilogy? I thought I'd be at the end when I finish this book! 3y
