Elizabeth and her story
God, when I first read the first chapter, I was hooked. You can't even believe how so many characters are in-character for once and with a story plot that could satisfy anyone who loves horror and mysteries. Elizabeth has grown up to be a young woman trying to understand her stance and position with her fiancee Ciel, who hasn't changed at all except his appearance. He's still the cold and distant Earl who always pushes Elizabeth away at the slightest notion of being the Queen's Watchdog. The way the author characterizes Sebastian is how it should be: a seemingly devoted servant with a dark, mysterious, and evil aura surrounding this man. Paula's role in the story expands from being just Lizzy's loyal maid to being a straight out badass with training from her Mistress. Add in the author's OC's like the charming Theodore and his mysterious sister, Felicity, the rebellious, Irish girl Collen, meek and shy Rebecca Beddor, the bookworm Stephen, and so many more, the reader gets a cast that aren't just O Cs, they move the plot and have so much characterization, you WILL cry, laugh, scream in horror and anger, and even smile at Lizzy's interactions with all of them.

Agreed. Silk Hiding Steel doesn't begin to describe Lizzie this story. Chapter 7 is now legendary.

It's a lovely story that really shows Lizzie's character. Take her badass from chapter 57, multiply it by 10 and remove the childish side of her. That's the Lizzie in this. And she's magnificent.
