Notes: Ah, Arabella continues to delight! This was a perfect read to read after the heartbreaking trauma of “All the Wandering Light by Heather Fawcett”!

Arabella returns in this dazzling sequel where instead of Mars being the main planet she’s on, it’s Venus. New characters are introduced, as well as old. Her fiance remains true, except he’s been captured and labeled a prisoner of war along with his remaining crew. It’s up to Arabella to harness a new crew to go and save the day.

These books are so delightfully fun! While some of the men are incredibly sexist, and her brother is a bit racist towards her fiance, it’s still full of wit, humor, and sarcasm to delight all readers. There’s plenty of intrigue, as well, and dangerous attacks in space on the ships. A new delightful captain, Daniel Fox Captain of the Touchstone, is equally fun to read!

Brave, a gambler, handsome, and full of wit, I really wanted Arabella to marry Daniel instead of Captain Singh. I digress, however, as this isn’t just about one character that I fell for. This is about Arabella going gallantly into the unknown to face Bonaparte who has escaped and is attempting to restore his empire once more, even as she’s attempting to free her fiance. There’s banter, adventure, and danger throughout this novel, and I treasured every page.

The wait for the next book is going to be just awful. *sighs miserably* Even so, this book was an utter delight, and I give it 4.5/5 stars for an enchanting and entertaining read.

Until next time,
