In connection with R.I.P. X, the Estella Society is hosting this group read along of The Quick, by Lauren Owen. I had not planned to join in, but another blogger (Belle), mentioned that she was going to look for a copy. I can’t resist a read along when my favorite people are involved. So, I got myself a copy and I am ready to go!
Goodreads has this to say about the book:
For fans of Anne Rice, The Historian, and The Night Circus, an astonishing debut, a novel of epic scope and suspense that conjures up all the magic and menace of Victorian London.
Hello! I am so there. Doesn’t it sound good? Will you be reading it too?
The original post says the details will be noted over at Fig and Thistle but as of this writing, I haven’t seen the linky post yet. Nevertheless, I am reading along.

I just checked and it’s available at my library. I’m headed over there in a little while and am going to take a look at it. I think it would fit my mysteries set in the 1800’s for my book group as well.
Yes! Read read us!
Ti, you are going to enjoy this one. Its a Gothic story set in London, which makes it so much fun to read. The slow-pace really helps reel you in and adds an element of suspense to the story. Can’t wait to find out your thoughts on it. Enjoy!!
Sounds AWESOME, Ti, and I’m definitely adding it to my list, though not sure if I’ll read along with you guys. Hope so 🙂
I just got my copy from the library! Yay!
Hit submit too quickly. So glad you’re doing the readalong! Now I have incentive to pick it up and start reading 🙂
I think this sounds amazing. I am looking for it now!
Found it and I read it last year…mine had a different cover…I will be interested in your thoughts!
I loved this! It was on my top 10 list last year. I hope there’ll be a sequel soon.
I’m tempted to listen to this one as an audiobook. I will have to check it out. Right now, I have a couple of books lined up but nothing in audiobook format, so this one sounds perfect.
I read this one and REALLY liked it. Really, really liked it.
