Ten Thousand Stitches & Long Shadow
Updated: Oct 6, 2022
This is such a lovely series! Light, fun and sweet. I loved the way the characters interwove through each other's stories. Reading these books just made me so happy.
While they are regency romances, they don't centre on typical 'regency novel' characters. Atwater likes to put her own twist on the era she's writing in.
Ten Thousand Stitches gave me Eva Ibbotson vibes, with a fantasy twist. It explores what happens when you're trying to do the right thing, but it keeps going wrong and had a romance I enjoyed every bit as the one in the first book. I really love this world and would happily read many more books set in it.
Long Shadow is another brilliant romance, this time with great representation - especially with the historical note at the end. As well as following another fantastic couple, Long Shadow offers an exploration of grief and death, but still keeps the tone of the rest of the series.
I really love this series and could happily read very many more books set in it.
