Synopsis

The first in an alternate fantasy series where vampires, werewolves, and goblins rule London.

Queen Victoria rules with an immortal fist.

The undead matriarch presides over 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. It's a world where the nobility are 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 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.

The fantastic start to The Immortal Empire series that continues with the spectacular undead books, The Queen is Dead and Long Live the Queen.

God save the Queen
April 28th, 2015
First in a trilogy of steam punk books, different back story than most steam punk stories, but I thought it was brill. Nice and British, set in modern day London. The three stories are all wonderfully linked together with lots of twists and surprises to keep you glued to your page. A believable romantic arc throughout the stories, there is some "bedroom" scenes, but nothing graphic. The main character is likeable and told from her perspective. Hard to say much more without any spoilers, I enjoyed the trilogy so much I read them all in 3 days and am Already rereading them! Highly recommended. It was great to read a steam punk book set in modern day London (although not the London we know and love) but one where history veered off into another direction about 300 or so years ago.

An entertaining, if occasionally predictable read, with a great twist of an ending.
