The Lady in the Coppergate Tower

Hazel Hughes has spent her life believing she is a Medium—someone who can talk to ghosts. But as of yet, that skill has remained frustratingly elusive. She is also suffering from a reoccurring childhood dream of someone who looks almost exactly like Hazel, but this dream version of herself is slowly going mad. Sam MacInnes is a talented surgeon who runs in the highest soci...

    It's official! I'm a lover of Nancy Campbell Allen's steampunk romances! What do I love about them? I love that they're different than everything else that's flooding the market these days. I love that they're fairy tale retellings with her own unique twist thrown in. I love that she has me guessing until the very end about what will happen. I love knowing that once I start the book, I will be whisked away to a magical place that will hold me hostage until the very end. If you haven't guessed yet.. I love this series!

    I have been curious about Hazel and Sam since first meeting them in Beauty and the Clockwork Beast. There was just something about these two that called to me. Hazel and Sam were perfectly matched. She was the yin to his yang. Working together, they could anything and overcome whatever was thrown their way. I quickly fell in love with these two and found myself rooting for them from the very beginning.

    You guys! I'm not going to lie... I couldn't devour their story fast enough! Once I started this book, I could not put it down! It was intense, mysterious, swoony, and all around amazing! When I got to the end, I found myself going back to the beginning to read it all over again. I love when a book grabs me like that! It's the sign of a fabulous author! I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in this series!

    And can we take a minute to admire these two?! I absolutely love them as Hazel and Sam! What do you think?

    I've always loved fairy tales and the twists that Nancy Campbell Allen adds to them are phenomenal! Rapunzel, Steampunk style, had me on the edge of my seat. In fact, I couldn't put it down and read it all in one day.

    Hazel is a healer, of sorts, and assists a cutting edge surgeon, Sam, with his work. I loved those medical aspects, as they really showed the teamwork and foundation necessary for a solid relationship. When Hazel leaves with her uncle to go find her sister, Sam and his automaton (bot), Eugene, tag along, despite fears and misgivings.

    The dark overtones complemented the complexity of this mysterious and dangerous tale and I was captivated with the imaginative elements, twists and turns, and fantastic characters (Eugene almost stole the show with his robotic sarcasm and wit). The secrets unraveled to reveal a wonderfully intense climax and I just couldn't get enough. Of course, I adored the budding romance, which only served to add to the deliciously satisfying layers of entertainment. This is definitely a story you won't want to miss!

    Content: mild romance; mild+ violence/moments of peril

    I think the thing I like most about this book and the others in this series is that it feels different to me. When I start reading, I know I will get a story that isn't like all the others. The light steampunk feel is fun and I love the creativity is allows the author to build up a world unlike the one I know. While this book is based on Rapunzel, it really doesn't feel that way at all, which also makes me happy.

    This book has mystery, danger and a growing intensity that I really felt. The darkness sort of hovered around everywhere, waiting to jump at me. It gave the story a bit of edge that I really liked.

    Sam and Hazel are two intelligent, even tempered people. They suit each other very well in their professions and as people falling in love. I loved being right there with them as they research, learn and put all the clues together. I think what I most appreciated was that even though they were smart, it was their intuition that they followed. Those gut feelings should never be ignored. Oh! And I cannot forget Eugene! He was definitely the comedic relief in this story. He kept things entertaining and light which was a much needed balance to the heavier feel to other parts of the story.

    Overall, this was a fun story. I always love reading books by this author and can't wait to see what comes next!

    Content: dark magic, death, mild violence, kissing

    The author does a wonderful job drawing the reader into the world of fantasy fairy-tale retelling and steampunk with realistically grounded characters and a mystery to solve. Unrequited love that is secretly not unrequited is one of my favorite tropes and I really enjoyed the developing romance between Hazel and Sam with the tension that holds them back all the while falling more in love with each other. There is a darkness to the suspense as they follow the dubious Romanian uncle to Hazel's sis

    The author does a wonderful job drawing the reader into the world of fantasy fairy-tale retelling and steampunk with realistically grounded characters and a mystery to solve. Unrequited love that is secretly not unrequited is one of my favorite tropes and I really enjoyed the developing romance between Hazel and Sam with the tension that holds them back all the while falling more in love with each other. There is a darkness to the suspense as they follow the dubious Romanian uncle to Hazel's sister, and I was anxious to see how they would rescue her. Such creative world-building! Characters and situations from the previous two books are referred to and while I had read the second book in the series, I wish that I had read the first one also, so I would recommend reading them in order for full enjoyment. It definitely works as a standalone though.

    I love anything Allen writes. She has never written a book that hasn't captured me and pulled me in. This is not my favorite of this series but I still liked it a lot. It was a good addition. This is the story of Hazel, a very smart Dr. assistant. We first meet her in B&B, she is attacked by a vampire and taken care of by Dr. Sam MacInnes. This book stars a year latter and they are now colleges. Hazel is feeling off, she does random dangerous things and has dreams of looking at herself but i

    I love anything Allen writes. She has never written a book that hasn't captured me and pulled me in. This is not my favorite of this series but I still liked it a lot. It was a good addition. This is the story of Hazel, a very smart Dr. assistant. We first meet her in B&B, she is attacked by a vampire and taken care of by Dr. Sam MacInnes. This book stars a year latter and they are now colleges. Hazel is feeling off, she does random dangerous things and has dreams of looking at herself but it's not her. She fears she is going mad. This has a slower pace then the other books and the romance is a slow building gentle one. This is very proper with some sweet kisses and a bit of violence. Her books have been a little darker then this one but there are still deaths and frightening ideas. Nothing too crazy, again tamer then the last two have been. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next. I am guessing it is Emme and Oliver:]

    This was an entertaining mixture of steampunk, horror, romance and mystery and I really enjoyed it. The world building was OK but the characters for me were the best part. I adored Hazel and I loved her romance with Sam - it was very sweet and believable. I also really enjoyed the writing style and found it quiet addictive in places and it kept me entertained throughout. The pacing was good and I enjoyed all the Steampunk elements and the Victorian setting.

    There are other books in the series but you can read each as a stand alone which is lucky as they are very expensive on the kindle in the UK : (

    I would recommend this if you like Steampunk fiction - received from Netgalley in exchange for and honest review

    I have read the other two previous books in this series and felt it helped understand the characters and the world.

    That said, it can be read as a standalone, especially if the reader is used to steampunk/dieselpunk fiction.

    This story is a mashup of more than one fairy tale, as well as some vampire lore and even a Jules Vernes flair in the mode of transportation. The worldbuilding continues setting itself apart, just as the previous novels, and this series would make an excellent one for TV or

    This story is a mashup of more than one fairy tale, as well as some vampire lore and even a Jules Vernes flair in the mode of transportation. The worldbuilding continues setting itself apart, just as the previous novels, and this series would make an excellent one for TV or movies.

    Hazel and Sam work together and they're attracted to each other but have not acted on their feelings for various reasons, mainly social expectations.

    When Hazel meets a man who claims to be her uncle and tells her she has a twin sister who is sick, she's not completely surprised to find out about her twin. She accepts the invitation to travel with the man and Sam offers to accompany her.

    I liked how Sam and Hazel worried about each other and put each other's welfare ahead of their own.

    Looking forward to the next story in the series.

    I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.

    Smiling! I am smiling as I finish this book. I love a book that satisfies my desire for a good story. This book had characters that I couldn't help but like. It had mystery, conflict, and romance.

    Hazel grew up thinking that she was an only child. She is smart, inquisitive, and proficient at her job. She is a healer working with Dr. Sam MacInnes. She has admired him for a long time and is pleased when he offers to accompany her on a journey to find the sister that she just found out she had. Her

    Hazel grew up thinking that she was an only child. She is smart, inquisitive, and proficient at her job. She is a healer working with Dr. Sam MacInnes. She has admired him for a long time and is pleased when he offers to accompany her on a journey to find the sister that she just found out she had. Her Uncle is shrouded in mystery. There is something that isn't quite right about him. Having Sam with her adds a level of comfort.

    The mystery surrounding her Uncle is well written. I couldn't quite piece together all of the clues and figure out what he was about for most of the book. Hazel's sister, Marit, is introduced as snippets in Hazel's dreams. Hazel knows there is something wrong with her sister's situation and is determined to free and heal her broken mind.

    This book has everything that I enjoy. I loved the Steampunk and paranormal aspect of the book. It was present without being overwhelming. Nancy Campbell Allen does a wonderful job at giving the right amount of information in increments to keep the interest of the reader

    This book contains non-graphic violence and kissing.

  • Laura G (lauralovestoread)

    I read this to get a taste of steam punk and it was an enjoyable read. Definitely different from my typical genre, but it was good to read this book that was part historical fiction and part futuristic dystopian.

    I wish that I had read the other two previous books before reading, so that I could grasp the characters but it does read as a stand-alone book also.

    Thank you netgalley for this free digital copy. All thoughts are my own

    Retellings can always be a bit of a mixed bag. Especially retellings that bend genres. I think that my personal favourites, when it comes to re imaginings, are the ones that full on embrace new tropes or genre types.

    Retellings can always be a bit of a mixed bag. Especially retellings that bend genres. I think that my personal favourites, when it comes to re imaginings, are the ones that full on embrace new tropes or genre types. Which is why

    was so intriguing to me--described as part dystopian, part Steampunk--from the start. This proper romance felt like the right fit, due to its uniqueness.

    The good news is, it definitely lived up to my expectations of it.

    is lush and unlike any of the retellings I've read in 2019 thus far. Deeply imaginative, high paced and utterly captivating, I was unable to put this book down. Nancy Campbell Allen pens a classic romance that will surely leave its audience on the edge of their seat and with a lasting fondness.

    Mixed with a mesmerizing amount of worldbuilding, mythology and familiar steampunk elements,

    is a dazzling and romantic romp of its own caliber. Pages into it, readers will be able to visualize everything in Nancy Campbell Allen's vivid prose. This novel is certainly for the romantic at heart.

    If you love love, if you love fantasy, if you love fairy-tales,

    will be engrossing as can be for you. Although there were some things in it that I wasn't keen on (nothing worth noting in the review, because my feelings towards it are positive) during the novel, it proved to be entertaining and I genuinely had a good time reading it.

    Up until

    , I'd not familiarized myself with the series it originates from. It can be, after-all, read as a standalone. Although now, I certainly have it on my TBR and will gladly be picking up more novels by the author in the future.
