The Mysterious Madam Morpho by Delilah S. Dawson is a novella set in the steampunk-ish world of Sang and stars Madam Morpho, who has some pretty cool tricks up her sleeve, and Mr. Murdoch, who readers may remember from Wicked as They Come.
Mix the forbidden, some mysterious characters, and a steamy love scene, and you have a great read! This book is the follow-up to Wicked as They Come, Dawson’s debut novel. I read Wicked as They Come when it first came out and was waiting hopelessly for the next installation. Then came this little gem. It could easily stand alone, so readers don’t have to have read the first book to enjoy it, but it is much stronger with previous knowledge about the world of Sang.
I love to see a new author grow, and that is exactly what Delilah S. Dawson is doing in this series. I can’t wait to read more.
