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.

And a world where technology lives side by side with magic. The year is 2012 and Pax Britannia still reigns.

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.

Story

The British Accent was too Distracting

Although the narrator was well voiced and well paced, her heavy British accent (which I guess was appropriate for a very British novel) was too distracting for me.

Author Bio: Kate Locke

Kate Locke is a shameless Anglophile who wrote her first book at age twelve. Fortunately, that book about a British pop band is lost forever. During “off” hours Kate often screeches along to Rock Band (being a rock star was her second career choice if the writing thing didn’t work out), watches BBC America, or plays with makeup. She loves history, the paranormal, horror, and sparkly things.
