(Taken from J-Novel Club) Lydia Carlton is a fairy doctor who can see and communicate with fairies. When she embarks on a journey to visit her father in London, she’s kidnapped by a young man named Edgar Ashenbert who introduces himself as an earl and requests Lydia’s aid in searching for a treasured sword that will prove his status. Although she finds his story dubious, Lydia agrees to work with him—if only because he’s her first real client. Meanwhile, rumors of a heinous burglary abound, and the culprit seems to bear an uncanny resemblance to Edgar…

Why are you nominating this book: This has been on my TBR for a while, ever since learning about it from JNC licensing it. I like fantasy and the possibility of gentleman thieves/phantom burglars, and it’s a nice long series to sink your teeth into if you end up liking it.
