Quitting her husband’s house and moving back in with her
horrible family, Lady Maccon becomes the scandal of the London season.
Queen Victoria dismisses her from the Shadow Council, and
the only person who can explain anything, Lord Akeldama, unexpectedly leaves

indicating, as only ladybugs can, that all of London’s vampires are now very
much interested in seeing Alexia quite thoroughly dead.
While Lord Maccon elects to get progressively more
inebriated and Professor Lyall desperately tries to hold the Woolsey werewolf
