Corpse & Crown + Giveaway

About Corpse & Crown

Hardcover: 320 Pages

Publisher: Inkyard Press; Original edition (February 12, 2019)

Agatha DeLacey’s family isn’t rich or titled, so studying nursing at Ingold’s East End hospital in London is a rare opportunity for her. Despite the school’s focus on the innovative Bio-Mechanical program, Aggie cares more about the desperately poor human patients who flood the hospital, even if that means providing unauthorized treatment after-hours…and trusting a charming, endlessly resourceful thief.

But the Artful Dodger is barely a step ahead of his underworld rivals, the menacing Bill Sykes and mercurial Oliver Twist, and Aggie’s association with him soon leads her into danger. When a brutal attack leaves her blind, she and the Dodger find themselves at the mercy of an experimental Bio-Mech surgery. Though the procedure restores Aggie’s sight, her new eyes come at an unnerving cost, and the changes in Dodger are even more alarming—instead of seeing Aggie as the girl he fancies, he now views her as a potential threat.

As war between England and Germany brews on the horizon and a sinister medical conspiracy threatens to shatter the uneasy peace in Europe, Aggie and the Dodger must find a way to work together so they can protect their friends and expose the truth…even if it means risking their own survival.

My Review

I enjoyed this book much more than the first one, Cadaver and Queen. I found myself just jumping right into this book. That is because the back story and introductions of the characters from the first book were over. Therefore, for this reason I do suggest you start with the first book to get the better reading experience with this book.

In the prior novel, Aggie was not as prominent. Yet, in this book, she was one of the main lead characters. I really liked her. The other person that also made a good impression on me was Artful Dodger. He plays the role of "Oliver Twist" in this spin off of that classic story. Yet, he had more attitude and spunk.

I criticized the first book because I felt that the bio-mechanical aspect was not that strong. However, in this book it was more prominent. Thus, I was happy. This is a good series with a fun twist on classics, Frankenstein and Oliver Twist.

One lucky winner will win both books. US only. Leave a comment with your email address. Additional entries on my Instagram post. Winner chosen February 26th.
