Queen Victoria rules with an immortal fist, the undead matriarch of a Britain where the Aristocracy is made up of werewolves and vampires, where goblins live underground and mothers know better than to let their children out after dark. A world where being nobility means being infected with the Plague (side-effects include undeath), hysteria is the popular affliction of the day, and leeches are considered a delicacy. And a world where technology lives side by side with magic. The year is 2012.

Xandra Vardan is a member of the elite Royal Guard, and it is her duty to protect the Aristocracy. But when her sister goes missing, Xandra will set out on a path that undermines everything she believed in and uncover a conspiracy that threatens to topple the empire. And she is the key-the prize in a very dangerous struggle. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jane | 2/15/2014

    " I found this book to be hard to put down. I got really into it because it is two of my favorite genres in one it's steam punk and horror all at the same time. Which is not something I find a lot of I now need to buy book two and three of this series so I can finish reading it. "

    " Not bad--could have been better if the author had gone more in depth with the characters. I probably won't read the sequel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jessica (BookRockGodess) Bolton | 1/30/2014

    " This book was very well done. I really enjoyed this book it did not contain overly sexual situations that are all the rage for adult fantasy books. Yes sex is mentioned but if you want the details then you need not read this book. The author focus on the emotional relationship between the characters and not the sexual parts of it. I thought that this was just very refreshing to read because wow a paranormal adult book that wasn't all about sex what a concept. This book had a lot of depth to the characters. I will be reading the next book in this series as soon as I can get my hands on it. "

    " I enjoyed this book a great deal. Granted it may not be fully steampunk like some people would classify it as, but it has the elements of it along with the supernatural vampires and werewolves. When I first read the back of this book I thought "how the hell can all of these elements be in the same book successfully?" But once you start reading it, it works very well and draws you in deeper with each chapter. The characters are very well done and the descriptions of the locations are such that you can feel like your walking through 1800's England with them. I am now anxiously awaiting book 2! "
