Alex Locke is still searching for his missing young daughter. Transported through time to the dank streets of Victorian London, his only hope of finding her lies with the obsidian heart, the enigmatic object to which his fate seems inextricably bound. Desperately seeking the heart, Alex follows the trail of a gruesome murderer that will lead him through the opium dens of Limehouse into the dark and twisted world of the Society of Blood, and ever closer to unlocking the secret of the heart - and finding his daughter.

 Trigger Warnings


There is a lot of child abuse, especially involving horrific experiments on children, including the forced amputation of limbs.


This was my favourite book out of the three books in the Obsidian Heart trilogy, and it had a lot to do with it being set in the Victorian era rather than the present day. The first book was primarily Alex Locke running around trying to get his bearing as his life fell apart after his daughter is abducted. In this book, he’s still chasing his tail a bit as he’s coming to terms with what and supernatural creatures really exist in the world. However, we see him come into his own as he starts to make plans and start to things out.

Unfortunately, I also began to start to things out and piece things together, which meant that by the end of The Society of Blood I had worked out most of the trilogy’s overall plot. It didn’t stop the book itself from being enjoyable, but for me, it did affect my feelings toward the final book.
