Books and Braun are back and better than ever! Alright, maybe they're just causing more mayhem than usual, but it still makes for a great read. Wellington and Eliza gotten themselves involved in another case from the Archives, and Eliza is never one to let well enough alone, especially when it involves something very near and dear to her heart: the Suffragist Movement. Both of our dear MCs pasts come calling in the second installment of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences. Eliza's has visitors from home that bring up painful memories, and Wellington's devious father's deeds are finally revealed, if only slightly. And we mustn't forget the Ministry Seven! They become even more deeply involved in the case when it spreads to their hometurf, the London underworld of street urchins and gangs. All in all, The Janus Affair is a wonderful steampunk story with flair and drama, all in good taste of course. The only thing I don't like is the title. Maybe someone can explain it to me?
