Queen Victoria is the undead matriarch of a Britain where the Aristocracy is made up of werewolves and vampires, where goblins live underground, and where mothers know better than to let their children out after dark. In this world, being part of the 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 technology lives side by side with magic. The year is 2012 and Pax Britannia still reigns. 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.

Action packed and dramatic. Author has an excellent pleasure-to-read writing style.

It draws you in. You can't help but keep reading. My only complaint is the cover. But they say never to judge a book by its cover, so that might be irrelevant.

One of my largest complaints with the Steampunk genre is the use of strange terminology that throws you out of the plot - luckily there is none of that here. A wonderful, fast-paced read and the mini-hardcover binding was great too!

Delightful! Fans of the Parasol Proctectorate series will enjoy this gritty steampunk/vampire/werewolf/goblin/urban fantasy. Xandra may be my new favorite ass-kicking female lead.
