Innocent Darkness Terminology Guide

Posted July 5, 2012 by Sara 1 Comment

Part of the charm of Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazear is that it’s written in the style of historical fiction, despite the heavy dose of Steampunk and fantasy. Today, we’ve compiled a glossary of a few of the terms used throughout Innocent Darkness that have some sort of historical (or fantastical) implications:

Hoyden:

a girl or woman of saucy, boisterous, or carefree behavior; a tomboy (source)

Rake:

a dissolute person; libertine (source)

Dollymop:

part-time or amateur prostitute (source)

Aether:

According to ancient and medieval science aether is the material that fills the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere. (source)
