New recruit to the Queen’s agents, Dr. Piyali Mukherji is given a simple first assignment. Travel to the small Welsh village of Aberwyn and solve the mystery of a young woman’s blue skin lesion. A challenging task, for the alarming infection is unlike anything she’s seen before – and it’s spreading.
Evan Tredegar, the town’s pharmacist and the only man to ever capture her heart, knows more than he’s telling. Despite his efforts to push her away, her touch reawakens old desires. As more villagers fall victim to the strange disease, he’ll have no choice but to reveal his secrets, even if it means sacrificing his freedom.
Together they must move past broken promises, capture a rogue frog, and stop the infection before it spreads out of control.
This is an update to my previous review which you can read here. This is the first of Anne Renwick’s Elemental Web Tales to be released as an audiobook and if steampunk or romance is your thing, then you don’t want to miss this one. I loved this story when I originally read it but I enjoyed it even more as an audio book. The narrator is Anais Inara Chase and she has done a fantastic job with this book. The story felt even more dramatic and action packed with her narration. More books in the series will be coming out on audio with this narrator and I can’t wait to rediscover these stories through her voice.
