Good steampunkish fantasy!
Photographs & Phantoms
By: Cindy Spencer Pape
Narrated by: Kate Reading
A female photographer, in a world where women normally didn't work, called her noble uncle for a problem she was having with her pictures. She was finding a snake wrapped around subjects and that subject died the next day! Her uncle sent a handsome man from the Court of the Round Table. A great mystery and a touch of romance!
Good narration. ( )

This was okay but not nearly as good as the first book in this series. I enjoyed the creepy mystery surrounding the strange shadows showing up in Amy's photography. However, the relationship between her and Kendall was very insta-love.

I did enjoy the cameo made by Caro and crew. This story is a fun diversion and I enjoyed it, even if it wasn't anything all that special.

This is also a very short read (I listened to it on audiobook and it was only a couple hours long).

Overall this was an okay addition to the series but could probably be skipped since it stands alone. I plan on reading the next story in the series to see if that one continues like the first book or is like this shorter novel. ( )

Photographs and Phantoms is the story of a woman portrait photographer, Amy Deland and Kendall Lake a member of the Order of the Round Table. Amy sees something "evil" in some of the photographs she takes and shortly thereafter the photos with the shadowy presence dies. Kendall is called upon by the Order to investigate. I felt the characters weren't developed enough, I wanted to know more about Amy and Kendall's past, I especially wanted to know why Amy's family became estranged from Lord Drood. As a simple romance it was okay but as a suspense book much more should be added. ( )

Photographs & Phantoms is only sixty-six pages long and therefore is more of a novella than a book. Though we do get to briefly see the Hadrian family, whom we met in Steam & Sorcery, this novella involves a brand new relationship. In the interest of fairness to Cindy Spencer Pape, I feel it's once again necessary to disclose that I am not a fan of romance novels, so please keep that in mind as you read this review.

Photographs & Phantoms once again begins with a confirmed bachelor. Kendall Marquess Lake, is a member of the Order of the Round Table and he is sent from London by dirigible to Brighton, to investigate a case involving the niece of Lord Drood. Kendall is not the least bit excited by this case, though it is the first chance he has had to engage in fieldwork for awhile.

Amy is a professional photographer. Though she has enough money to do without employment, she is compelled to work because of the love of her art. Having had one season out in society, Amy decided that she was not suitable for that sort of life and instead chose to focus on her passion. For Amy, this would mean a life of spinsterhood, but one she was willing to accept for the freedom that being an artist gave her. Unfortunately for Amy, it seems that when someone sits down to have their photo taken, shortly afterwards they die. Could this be a manifestation of precognition because is after all a direct descendant of Merlin, or is something about her art killing her customers?

One of the things I detest about romance novels is how quickly love is declared. In the case of Photographs & Phantoms, it rises to the level of absolute ridiculousness. After knowing each other for forty-eight hours, Amy and Kendall fall hopelessly in love. Kendall goes from claiming discomfort about his childhood friend "getting leg shackled", to proposing to Amy based on the strength of his physical attraction to her. At one point, he even admits that he has gone to long without getting laid, yet somehow, his lust magically turns to love when he saves Amy from a man determined to control her. Of course, Amy is equally smitten but this is okay because apparently, this ridiculous love at first sight thing runs in the family.
