  1. Patricia Nead Elrod is an American fantasy writer specializing in novels about vampires Her work falls into areas of fantasy and in some cases mystery or historical fiction, but normally not horror, since her vampires are the heroes.

  2. Enjoyable read It features Alex, a physic a little like being an empath , and various other entrants into the occult I would call it gaslight fantasy, as opposed to steampunk, in the vein of The Native Star by M K Hobson I found the plot enjoyable to follow, the side characters very intriguing, and the love interest or is it interests appealing For me, I would prefer a little nookie and a little less gore, but that s know how I roll.

  3. 4.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2015 05 15 bI have a weakness for gaslight paranormal fantasy and lady detectives, so when presented with P.N Elrod s The Hanged Man I found I could hardly resist this delectable mystery set in alternate historical England with shades of the Victorian era.The book begins on a cold and dreary Christmas Eve in 1897, and Alexandrina Victoria Pendlebury of Her Majesty s Psychic Service is called out to a house on Baker Street to do a forensic reading [...]

  4. This is a reviewof the first 4 chapters I m quite sure that when I saw and downloaded this book on NetGalley it didn t say it was a preview excerpt, but then it suddely did I could be wrong But that s not the point The point is that I have read the first four chapters of a book that I really liked and then there wasn t any I can understand reading a sample of a book, but still this was quite a lot of the book and I want NOW So how was the book The first four chapters where really good and I m l [...]

  5. This was my first encounter with Elrod since reading a couple of Vampire Files in my teens, and although the setting is different an alt history Victorian London stylistically it is about what I remember entertaining but not very complex plot, sympathetic but not very rounded characters, competent but not noteworthy prose style Fun beach read sort of thing In fact, so not complex that some twists I was expecting turned out to be wishful thinking.

  6. I rather enjoyed this book It was steampunkish murder mystery bigger plot in an alternate England Alex is an engaging main character that works with Her Majesty s Psychic Service She is level headed but impulsive, sensible yet often throws caution to the wind in order to solve the mysteries surrounding the case Hers is a world where some have paranormal abilities, many of which work to keep England safe Late at night she is called to the scene of murder that hits close to home Soon she is involv [...]

  7. Thank you Netgalley and Macmillan Tor Forge for a eARC 4 chapter EXCERPT in exchange for an honest review.I m dying to read the rest of this book Alex is a Reader She is called to read deaths and suspects to bring about justice She is part of a department of psychic readers under Her Majesty s service in this alternate, mildly steampunk England She is strong, stoic, smart, lonely She is Sherlockian in observation and lives on Baker street I m also in love with the brusque and intimidating Inspec [...]

  8. Mon avis en Fran aisMy English reviewI saw some very good reviews about this book and I admit that I was impatient to begin it to discover the whole story It must be said that it had it all a fantasy aspect, a good investigation, murders and all that taking place during the Victorian period What can we ask for So we discover Alexandrina Victoria Pendlebury, a young woman part of the secret services and helping the police to solve some murders Indeed, her gift allows her to feel the emotions of [...]

  9. I didn t connect very well to this book, which is kind of a shame The world is interesting and the story is well constructed There are interesting elements and I can t help thinking I should have enjoyed this much better than I did.The obvious weaknesses are the uneven pacing and an emotionally distant main character Alex Pendlebury is a Reader someone who reads the emotions of others including lingering impressions left on objects and locations To keep from being overwhelmed, she has learned to [...]

  10. GENRE STEAMPUNK, MYSTERY, ALTERNATIVE HISTORY RATING 4.0 My Thoughts On Christmas Eve 1879, Alex, a top of the line Psychic reader who works for Her Majesty s Psychic Service, is called out by the gruff Scotland Yard Inspector Lennon who tells it like it is, and isn t afraid of offending anyone s sensibilities or political correctness He has himself a pickle, and can t get anything done until Alex clears the scene for him He believes the victim is a suicide, but needs Alex to verify that fact be [...]

  11. I picked this up because I like Elrod s Vampire Files series, which are entertaining books about a vampire private detective living in 1920 s Chicago.This is something different a gaslamp fantasy , or perhaps steampunk lite we have Victorians with modern attitudes, airships and a little fancy weaponry, but no excessive gadgetry It features an agent in Her Majesty s Psychic Service who, in the course of solving a murder mystery conspiracy, discovers that there are supernatural forces at work in [...]

  12. My emotions Chapter 4 Oh whoa Cool introduction This is going along well Chapter 6ish huh this is slowing down a bit What are we doing again Who is this person Chapter 8ish okay this used to be interesting I m going to press on I m sure it ll pick up Chapter 11 I m bored and I really can t go on Should I quit Should I finish leaves to sleep and comes back a day later Well, I could just skip to the final chapter 15 and just see how it goes.Chapter 15 skips Huh Well, I guess that s who did it Meh [...]

  13. 4.5I got a tantalizing preview from Netgalley but I don t feel I can publish a review for an excerpt What I read is well worth the 4.5 stars though Can t wait for the complete book Tor, please don t make me wait till May Updated after I read the complete book it did not disappoint This book has a unique, engaging protagonist for a murder mystery set in the Victorian era but with a twist Victoria didn t marry Albert, and has set up her own Psychic Service for those special investigations Alex and [...]

  14. Obviously I cannot review or rate this as I was provided with the preview except of the first four chapters, but if they are any indication of what the book is going to be, this will be a phenomenal, lush and dynamic read I am looking forward to reading the whole story.

  15. Imagine Sherlock Holmes but now he s a girl who carries a gun, lives in Baker Street, has the ability to read people s emotions, helps the police with cases and lives in a semi feminist Victorian London And she is twenty five years old, mature, independent and cleverN T SHE BLOODY MARVELOUS I also adored the writing, it s really atmospheric, specially in the quiet moments of the story The mystery aspect didn t fully convinced me but I would totally read from this world.

  16. Default three star rating.This isn t terrible, but it isn t spectacular either I like parts of it, and there are some great details, but I also have issues.1 It s one heck of a case of likeable characters being good, and unlikeable ones being evil To the extent that I m wondering how some things remained hidden There is also not sufficient explanation for the reasons behind some of the characters actions I accept that some people are really just terrible, but view spoiler Adrina seems ridiculous [...]

  17. I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review This was a SNEAK PEEK copy only the first four chapters.On a freezing Christmas Eve in 1879, a forensic psychic reader is summoned from her Baker Street lodgings to the scene of a questionable death Alexandrina Victoria Pendlebury named after her godmother, the current Queen of England is adamant that the death in question is a magically compromised murder and not a suicide, as the police had assumed, after the [...]

  18. This book has a unique, engaging protagonist for a murder mystery set in the Victorian era but with a twist Victoria didn t marry Albert, and has set up her own Psychic Service for those special investigations I was fully engaged, with the plot steaming on at full speed and then I came to the end of the preview In my eagerness to try P.N Elrod s new book, I hadn t noticed this was just an excerpt.Disclaimer I received a free ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  19. What caught my eye was the title since it indicates a Tarot card Nothing to do with that Nevertheless, this steampunk novel with romantic elements is great It s got a very strongly built reworking of Victorian England The young queen defies convention and marries a peer of the realm and lives happily married with four children A strong believer in the rights of women and men, she works to grant the vote to everyone in the realm The England under this Queen flourishes around the world, as does sc [...]

  20. What if Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandrina Victoria of Kent the future Queen Victoria had a wake up call prior to her crowning one that caused her to battle for the rights of her citizens What if British women had the vote in the 1850s, and their own property rights What if Victoria had insisted on marrying a peer and not a prince What if this all happened in a world where a Psychic Service was critical, because enemies dark and networked were attacking the roots of the empire This is the w [...]

  21. Pros great protagonist, interesting mystery, subtle romanceCons Alexandrina Pendelbury is goddaughter of Queen Victoria and a member of Her Majesty s psychic service On Christmas eve she s called in to do a Reading for a suicide, but the emotions surrounding the crime scene are strange, and the identity of the victim propels her into investigating a series of mysteries.In many ways this book reminded me of Jaime Lee Moyer s book, Delia s Shadow Though this one takes place further in the past and [...]

  22. This book is.a lot of things.My favorite thing Alex She s intelligent, knows how to fight, has a hunger to travel the world and explore, is strong willed and a little bit petty Any heroine with a sharp tongue and a pistol is going to be a favorite of mine TBH, all these characters are pretty great They re well rounded, most of them Brook feels a little generic, but everyone else has a decent level of depth.The plot kept moving along pretty quickly, with enough plot twists and dramatic reveals to [...]

  23. Fantastic new novel by P N Elrod.Alexandrina Victoria Pendlebury, named for her godmother, Queen Victoria, works for Her Majesty s Psychic Service Mostly Alex works with Scotland Yard as a Forensic Reader, but when a close family member is murdered, Alex finds herself confronting terror and treason at every turn.Set in a Victorian England where Victoria married an English peer, not a German prince, and where women got both the vote and equal rights in 1859, The Hanged Man is best described as hi [...]

  24. 3.5 stars, rounded down because the entire book happens in one day, which would not normally be a problem except that this book was 336 pages of just adventure and nothing else It would have been better had the author given the characters and by extension the readers some time to breathe and reflect Instead, it was chapter after chapter of adventure, and there was too much showing and not enough telling in my opinion I know a lot of readers often complain that authors tell too much, but in this [...]

  25. In The Hanged Man we meet Alexandrina Victoria Pendlebury, or Alex for short, a forensic psychic reader, as her past catches up to her She can read heightened emotions lingering in a room, on people and objects This case catapults her into a shadowy plot that she is determined to uncover even as she becomes a target herself.The writing was very dense to me right from the get go I don t like dense because even if you like a premise and are enjoying events for the most part it can still cause a st [...]

  26. GIVE ME MORE.I wish I could just end the review like this because writing reviews for good books is awfully difficult, but a book as good as The Hanged Man deserves the full treatment This book is what I ve been craving for a long time it s a gaslight fantasy mystery done right The Hanged Man is set in a clever alternative twist on the Victorian era, where an enlightened Queen Victoria married a Lord Arthur instead of Albert and had herself championed the passing of the bill that gave women the [...]

  27. Rating 3 1 2 stars I was provided a preview excerpt by Netgalley.3 1 2 starsI was expecting a historical mystery but got paranormal instead So for those fans of paranormal mysteries and they are legion this might just be for you Alternate history is presented here to make the premise of government psychic investigators during Queen Victoria s time period logical This was a great time period to explore and the characters were likeable and engaging The plot was intriguing, as well.Normally I d giv [...]

  28. Reasons that it is a must read Queen Victoria marries a commoner, forever altering The British Empire i really wished this happened The key players Alex, Brooks, James, Sybil, Teddy, and Sir Richard are larger than life Each use their set of unique abilities to foil their enemy s agendas whether on purpose or accidental, that will keep you laughing and intrigued Brooks is new to the Psychic Service, and as such you learn along with Brooks what is required of an employee of the Service The detail [...]
