LoveReading View on Something Dangerous

This is the second in Vincenzi’s glorious Spoils of Time trilogy and readers should definitely start at the beginning with No Angel. Celia Lytton’s children are all grown up and Something Dangerous focuses on their lives as twenties roar into the thirties and war once more threatens the family’s fortunes. Twins Venetia and Adele have the world at their feet, Giles is trying to find his, Kit is racing towards adulthood and Barty Miller, who was adopted from London’s slums by Celia, is thrust into New York life and finds everything very different from how she expected it to be. Vincenzi creates a lustrous world, full of fascinating detail and entrancing characters and with this trilogy she is at the top of her game.

Something Dangerous Synopsis

The dazzling Lytton twins, Adele and Venetia, are born into the great Lytton publishing empire. In 1928, on their eighteenth birthday, they are rich and admired, with a confidence verging on arrogance. But the spectre of Nazi Germany is growing...Gradually their privileged world darkens in unimaginable ways - but it is not just the twins whose lives have been irrevocably changed. Barty Miller, rescued from the London slums in babyhood by Celia Lytton, is clever, ambitious, and a complete contrast to the twins - and she faces temptation of the most unexpected kind...
