“London, 175 years into the reign of Her Ensanguined Majesty Queen Victoria” God Save the Queen

 

Queen Victoria is celebrating her 175th year of her reign. Victorian England with a twist, the aristocracy has mutated. They are either vampires or werewolves. Besides the aristocracy there are humans and half-bloods. Those charged with guarding the aristocracies are half-bloods. Humans, half-bloods and the aristocracy do not exactly get along.

Welcome to Xandra’s world. She is a half-blood who is gainfully employed in the elite Royal Guard. Xandra’s life is thrown completely out of whack when her younger sister disappears. In her search for her sister she uncovers many things that cause her to doubt her beliefs about the world she lives in and the people she works with.

I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Xandra. I found her to be a strong, courageous, intelligent young woman who has a very sound sense of loyalty towards her family. Following Xandra through this story was a jolly good time. She kicked-arse while she went around investigating the disappearance of her sister. I applauded her strength of character when smacked in the face with facts that were contrary to everything she had been raised to believe. And dear reader, do not despair; this story also has a romantic interest for Xandra who is a suitable match for her.

 

“…I’ll talk to her (The Queen) if you want?” “You’d do that?” I asked. “But then she’ll know that we are…friends.” “Oh, is that what they call it these days?” His grin softened the caustic edge of his words. “Call me old fashioned, but I was of the notion that we were doing something they used to call ‘dating’, or, if you want to go back even further, ‘stepping out’.” God Save the Queen

 

Intrigue, betrayal, love and death all combined to make this a book I devoured in one evening.

 

Devour Books,

La Revenant

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.
