Friday Fun With Mary Evelyn

Friday Fun is where readers from ages 5 to 16 let us know what they are reading and why they loved (or hated) what they read. 

Today we have Mary Evelyn reviewing :

The Dark Unwinding (The Dark Unwinding, #1)
The Dark Unwinding by Sharon Cameron


When Katharine Tulman’s inheritance is called into question by the rumor that her eccentric uncle is squandering away the family fortune, she is sent to his estate to have him committed to an asylum. But instead of a lunatic, Katharine discovers a genius inventor with his own set of rules, who employs a village of nine hundred people rescued from the workhouses of London.

Katharine is now torn between protecting her own inheritance and preserving the peculiar community she grows to care for deeply. And her choices are made even more complicated by a handsome apprentice, a secretive student, and fears for her own sanity.

As the mysteries of the estate begin to unravel, it is clear that not only is her uncle’s world at stake, but also the state of England as Katharine knows it.


Why did you pick this book out?
This book was steam punk ( if you have read my review for
Etiquette and Espionage, you will understand why) and was full of difficult problems that I knew would leave my mind wandering.

What did you like about this book?
Katherine is dealing with critical situations that could cause a plethora of negative outcomes. It left me on edge. Waiting for the next thought that could be dire.

What did you not like about this book?
I was confused about who Robert was.

Would you tell other people to read this book?
Defiantly. It was a thrilling piece, full of vivid details.

Who was your favorite character? Why?
Lane. He has an unpredictable temper, but is caring and does what is best.

Who is your least favorite character? Why?
Aunt Alice. She is a selfish woman who despises the thought of Katherine. She is so involved with her finances that she neglects the care of anything and everything else.

Book Rating (circle a #):   1 2 3 4 5
