It's really hard for me to rate this book It irritated me by its beginning and made me excited by its ending OVERVIEWThis book sets in 1850 Royal Society buys magical person for its own use Charlotte and her brother Benjamin have magical abilities Benjamin is sold by his father to Royal Society His father has a debt to pay So he needs money which he takes from Royal Society by selling his son to them But the problem is Ben is not an experienced magus But his sister Charlotte is So she helps him to pass the tests of Royal Society to get a good deal of money I think help is not an appropriate word She cheats the Royal Society This is supposed to be the main plot of this book But not There is another plotCharlotte goes to the debt collectors' place to demand time But she finds that in their place criminal deeds are happening She gets shocked to know that some of the members of Royal Society are involved in the crime THINGS I DIDN'T LIKEExcept for the last chapter I didn't like pretty much of this book Everything was fine Author was also trying to create as much excitement as she could but all in vain Sorry to say but those excitements were pretty dull for me I didn't enjoy even though I was supposed to do I couldn't connect with Charlotte I couldn't connect with Benjamin Or I couldn't enjoy the plot as well with the exception of last chapter THINGS I LIKED Last chapter saved the rating of this bookFrom all of the characters I only liked Magus Hopkins I enjoyed reading him He was a complete mystery till the last chapter I got suspicious of him from the very first line of his entry And I was right He was a suspicious man And I liked it The only reason of mine to continue this series is him I liked his intentions which were revealed in the ending There was a hint of love interest between Charlotte and Hopkins But I didn't feel Hopkins was interested at all Even though Charlotte was interested little bit She didn't admit it because she was engaged and would be married in the next one If author would not alter anything in the next one which I think she wouldIn the whole book her fiancé appeared just in the beginning and in the ending Whole time Hopkins was there with herI really don't know what to expect from love interest I would just say to the author that do whatever you want with it But it must be good Overall this book is fine I am confident that next book will be way better than this one Please don't me down author Please Please PleaseApril 14 2017

summary Brother’s Ruin

Brother’s RuinEtter prospectWhen she discovers a nefarious plot by the sinister Doctor Ledbetter Charlotte must use all her cunning and guile to protect her family her secret and her cityBrother's Ruin is the first in a new gaslamp fantasy series by Emma NewmanAt the Publisher's reuest this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software DRM applied. In this gaslamp fantasy Charlotte is a powerful mage who has hidden her abilities for years to avoid being taken by the Royal Society of Esoteric Arts Her brother Benjamin who has much weaker magical abilities turns himself in to the Royal Society in the hope that the monetary compensation that his family would receive could save them from destitution But without the help of Charlotte he's in danger of being worth very little money or worse punished for lying to the Royal SocietyThis is an incredibly uick read but you will get to know Charlotte her struggles and her world well enough to look forward to the next book in the series It's refreshing to see a magical society that is not only out in the open but strongly controlled by a probably corrupt government Charlotte is plucky and adventurous but incredibly caring to her family which makes her a fun and compelling character to followThe book is about unraveling the mysteries of The Royal Society and its members as much as it is about Charlotte and her brother so there is a good amount of complexity here that keeps the story movingMy only issue has to do with Charlotte's obvious interest in Magus Hopkins This may be my own disinterest in reading romance stories I know I know but it's just not my thing right now but it seemed over the top to me Hopkins is charming and exciting though so I mean who could blame her I am hoping there is to develop their friendship or whatever it becomes in the future because I can tell it's going to be a good one despite my gripeI love Emma Newman's work and this series promises to be just as uniue and intriguing as the rest I can't wait for

A few years ago I would have been startled to think that there was such a thing as Historical Urban Fantasy but yeah it's a thing nowAnd now that we've got cotton gins and the Royal Society deeply involved in the magic business with all sorts of fear and corruption and intrigue I shouldn't really be surprised So the uestion is is this good I think it's uite fun personally It's a simple setup and Charlotte is a pretty cool character with a magical secret And she deeply mistrusts the Society for good reason as it turns out It's a simple story a comedy of error and circumstance that becomes a cross between a heist and a romance Wait simple Well yeah it's a short setup for a longer series obviously It's gonna reuire investment Fortunately it was fun and I don't have any problems with that Historical UF is fun
