This one was a strange read for me, because I really enjoyed the prequel, [b:The Governess Affair|13190596|The Governess Affair (Brothers Sinister, #0.5)|Courtney Milan|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1363009352s/13190596.jpg|18371803]. This one, however, had a somewhat wall-papery feel to it. I couldn't shake the feeling that the author was trying to cram random historical references down the readers' collective throats. See, the characters are talking about this book that I totally looked up on Wiki and so I know it was totally cutting edge in this time period.
orSee, these characters were totally ahead of their time regarding scientific concepts we now take for granted as ever having been controversial. I know because I did some serious scientific research for this.
Further, the scenes involving the three "brothers sinister" together, and their rich widowed female friend, felt completely out of place. Again, it seemed as though the characters were young, hip, twenty-somethings from 2013 who were transplanted into a Victorian era.
I don't know. The story was good. The writing was solid. But I have a feeling this one will be forgettable. It was... underwhelming.
