"A literary romp."
"A bizarre, yet highly entertaining combination of romance, horror, historical fiction, and comedy."
Two cousins. One on the verge of a great discovery... and excessive power, wealth, and infamy, the other on the verge of an odious marriage.
Lyra will stop at nothing to achieve her father’s dream of dissolving Parliament into anatomical sludge, and to search out the farthest reaches of science and the arcane arts. That is until her own dreams begin to awaken, jolted by the electric sparkle of an artist’s eyes.
Lacking a strong constitution, Alice can only run from her problems, that is until she collides into the company of a strange young man of questionable occupation and discovers her cousin’s terrible plans.
The dead are about to rise, the Lords are about to fall, and things are about to get creamy.
High society will never be the same again.
Narrated by the wonderful Melika Jeddi, who does wonderful character voices and gives it that perfect essence of dignified hilarity. I wrote this hoping for mixture of P.G. Wodehouse and Jane Austen, with a heady dose of gore and horror. The narration completes the vibe, and one can imagine it as a BBC adaptation of Austen gone awry.
Excerpt from the book. Recorded after one of my book signings, whilst I was still in full zombie makeup. Completely different from the audio book version.
