This is an exciting, engrossing read from a fabulous author, guaranteed to please all fans of magic in a quasi medieval setting. Think Raymond Feist vs David Eddings with a bit of J.K. Rowling thrown in for good measure. Every one of the books in this series has been really enjoyable, although you can read this as a stand alone and it will still read just as strongly. I recommend reading the whole series to add even more enjoyment however, and more depth of back stories to many of the characters.
I only wish Chris would write these ones faster!!! Another fantastic series (more Harry Potter-ish but with a strong female lead) is his series called Schooled in Magic, and they are utterly fabulous!!!

This was a different look at the setting of the Zero world. A young woman becomes head of her house. A house in decline and loaded with debts. She takes risks, risks that land her in hot water. She's not the only one though. The world of high society is a snakepit of secrets, petty rivalries, vendettas, corruption and scandal. In such a world monsters lurk and take advantage. The mc is a thrill seeker and is desperate, not a good combination but she has redeeming qualities. Several characters from previous entries show up but this entry can be read as a standalone.

Mr Nuttall has done it again. I was never sold on this universe to start with but this book is really good! I read it in one sitting which says much. The main characters are good, all interestingly crafted and this story moves the whole Zero Enigma universe just that bit further forward into the bargain.

I really enjoyed this latest installment and I am really looking forward to the next book in the pipeline. It is very interesting to see all the separate viewpoints of all the very different characters in each book. Usually a series is about one main character rather than different people from all walks of life. The different characters we have met so far are fascinating and make the books very realistic.

I enjoyed the book, but it had very little to connect it to the rest of the series. I would have preferred the author to continue the exploits of some of his earlier characters since there is still much to be developed there.

Yet another successReviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 September 2020
I was first introduced to Christopher Nuttall through his first Ark Royal trilogy. From there I went onto his Empire Corps series. A few stand alones later I came across a book called The Zero Blessing by Christopher Nuttall. It was a bit jarring as up until then all his books I read was military sci fi. The style was also different which had me thinking for a while that there were two authors with the same name. Then I read his notes at the end of the Zero Blessing and all became clear. What's more he also alluded to another series of books about a girl from Earth dropped into a world similar to the Zero world. Schooled in Magic. I have not been disappointed with any of Chris's books and this one is no exception. Ten stars.
A great read.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 October 2020
I really enjoyed this book but I have to admit I did struggle a little with Lucy Lamplighter at first. She certainly had ambition and brains, and in the face of impending financial doom, she showed determination and courage. Unfortunately, Lucy's thrill seeking natured placed her in the power of a blackmailer and nearly wrecked all of her plans. The story leads to a gripping finale which had me holding my breath while Lucy confronted her enemy. By the time I finished the book, I could over look Lucy's self destructive, adrenalin junkie faults and see her as fair minded, brave and dedicated not only to saving her family, but also to restoring House Lamplighter to greatness. Another brilliant read from the Zero Enigma series.
Rich original fantasyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 October 2020
I’m a bit tired of fantasy heroines saving the world. Here’s a young woman whose legacy from her father is a load of debt and a need for thrills. Can she stave off financial ruin for long enough to grow up a little, and can she keep her love of dangerous rule breaking from ruining not only her life, but that of her friends as well.
A fantasy thrillerReviewed in the United Kingdom on 5 October 2020
A different view of the Zero Enigma world, introducing a new central character with friends and touching the lives of previous characters. Some parts were nerve wracking and others exciting. Without giving anything away things worked out. Roll on the next book.
Really good readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 September 2020
It's wonderful seeing parts of the same universe from a different perspective. You don't need to have read the others in the series, although it will flesh it out for you. Really enjoyed this, to the point of skipping out on time I should have spent in the workshop and doing domestic chores, in order to read it.
