Publisher Description: As fog descends, obscuring the gas lamps of Victorian London, werewolves prowl the shadows of back alleys. But they have infiltrated the inner circles of upper-crust society as well. Only a handful of specially gifted practitioners are equipped to battle the beasts.
Review: An intriguing blend of steampunk and magic set in the Victorian era.
The characters were well developed and the pace was constant. A very creative foray into the depths of reasoning. Kate is the only insufferable character. Headstrong, stubborn, claiming high intelligence yet her actions are impulsive. By all accounts a very handsome woman that behaves like a spinster. The fight scenes are lengthy and lack believability. Still, an entertaining read.
