A spoilt heiress is propelled into a dark world of lost souls where she is taken prisoner by powerful being known only as The Ferryman.
Lady Madeline Farrington has what most girls want: money, beauty and a string of handsome and wealthy admirers. From a young age she's had everything she asked for. Getting what she wants has become an expectation. At sixteen both her and her cousin are of age, and are welcomed into adult society at The Duke of Angledin's ball. There she meets the mysterious and enigmatic Laurie de Bufort. She decides that she wants him too, even if it means hurting her cousin and best friend, Celia. But Madeline is about to learn that having everything you want can be dangerous, and that knowing Laurie de Bufort comes at a terrible price . . .

The Ferryman’s Wife is the first instalment of a series called Devils Light that I’d describe in two simple words: fascinating and original. Ok, let’s be completely honest and say extremely original!

Lady Madeline is one of those characters usually readers are not very fond of because of the annoying kind of behaviour she has . . . But here’s the great thing, no matter what, you’ll find difficult not to like Maddie in some way. She really is different from the heroines we read about and I found genuinely good to feel an attachment to a character like hers, or even The Ferryman. Yes, at some point that happened as well, I couldn’t help it. Not that I liked him in the same way I truly liked a ‘certain’ Nick, of course, but still. The author was able to put me in everybody shoes, which is a very hard task to do but Merry managed everything so well that she greatly succeeded and I enjoyed every minute spent with this book.

The story and the worlds Georgina Merry tells us about totally charm the reader from the very first pages, keeping their curiosity alive with secrets and plots during the whole read. A fantastic debut novel I hope it’s the first step to a great success!
