Book two of the Londo Chronicles doesn’t fit neatly into any one category. Set in a distant post-apocalyptic future where what little humanity remains is ruled by vampires, Gabriel’s Daughter is part steampunk, part historical, part urban fantasy and all romance. Simpson’s exquisite worldbuilding and talent for crafting fine prose makes what could have been a mishmash work on many levels. This is one sequel that stands firmly on its own merits.
After spending her teens on the streets, dodging the Overseers, Veronique Wilder is just days away from an opportunity to audition for the new symphony. She talks her way into a job as the piano player for an exclusive gentlemen’s club — where she meets Roman Brandt. After she’s attacked, Roman insists she remain with him. Only just freed from years of imprisonment, Roman discovers Veronique is his late friend’s secret daughter, and that Gabriel wrote him 10 years earlier hoping Roman would protect her. But keeping secrets from Veronique backfires, a woman from Roman’s past interferes and Veronique falls into the Overseers’ trap. (LUCKY PUBLISHING, Oct., 272 pp., $11.99)
