A tantalising new trilogy set in Regency London from the award-winning author of EON and EONA.

London, April 1812. Lady Helen Wrexhall is set to make her debut at the court of Queen Charlotte and officially step into polite Regency society and the marriage mart. Little does Helen know that step will take her from the opulent drawing rooms of Mayfair and the bright lights of Vauxhall Gardens into a shadowy world of missing housemaids and demonic conspiracies. Standing between those two worlds is Lord Carlston, a man of ruined reputation and brusque manners.

He believes Helen has a destiny beyond the ballroom; a sacred and secret duty. Helen is not so sure, especially when she discovers that nothing around her is quite as it seems, including the enigmatic Lord Carlston.

Against a backdrop of whispered secrets in St James's Palace, soirees with Lord Byron and morning calls from Beau Brummell, Lady Helen and the Dark Days Club is a delightfully dangerous adventure of self-discovery and dark choices that must be made... whatever the consequences.


This is a spell binding book that will keep you enthralled until the end.

Set in Regency London, when ladies were very protected and could not be upset in anyway, Lady Helen faces untold dramas. She must deal with dashing dukes, amazing balls, meeting royalty and chasing demons.

Part romance, part historical fiction, part supernatural thriller, this book will perfectly suit girls who like their heroines as feisty and independent as only Allison Goodman can make them.

I loved this book and can’t wait for the next instalment.

Will be most appreciated by girls in Year 9 and up.
