Book 4 in  Series

Lady Alexia Maccon, soulless, is at it again, only this time the trouble is not her fault. When a mad ghost threatens the queen, Alexia is on the case, following a trail that leads her deep into her husband’s past.

Top that off with a sister who has joined the suffragette movement (shocking!), Madame Lefoux’s latest mechanical invention, and a plague of zombie porcupines and Alexia barely has time to remember she just happens to be eight months pregnant.

  • Will Alexia manage to determine who is trying to kill Queen Victoria before it is too late?
  • Is it the vampires again or is there a traitor lurking about in wolf’s clothing?
  • And what, exactly, has taken up residence in Lord Akeldama’s second best closet?
