A ghost. Suspended among the ether. Floating along. What was it she was supposed to tell? Who was she supposed to tell? To wait for? Oh, why can’t her mind remember? Wait a moment… THE QUEEN!!!
Alexia Maccon is fairly far along in her pregnancy when a ghost warns her of impending doom for the queen. Never one for procrastinaion, Lady Alexia must seek out who is threatening the queen. As mujah, it is her civic duty to protect the crown. No matter the cause.
Together with the aid of her most fabulous friends and numerous contacts, Alexia traverses London in search of this ghost’s prior residence. Biffy at her side, she attempts to reconcile him to his new pack duties. It is unfortunate how he came to be a werewolf, yet it is the gift he was given and he must accept it. On the other hand, a broken heart among the supernatural set can have eternal ramifications. It would seem that there are more than just Lord Akeldama and Biffy who have experienced broken hearts. But how are they all interconnected? And does it have anything to do with the death threat on the queen?
The royalty is at stake and time is not on anyone’s side. Not the ghost’s, not the wolves’, not the queen’s, and definitely not Lady Alexia Maccon’s. As her due date grows near so too does the danger to the queen. Is she on the right track or is she lost? The ones she may encounter could dig up some old graves and the pasts of those closest to her. Will she turn out the ones she cares so much about? Will Major Channing Channing of the Chesterfield Channings be of any help?
It all leads up to the final book and this series goes out with a bang! So definitely read this on your way to the last book in the Soulless series.
On a side note I have a Halloween treat for you guys.
I have a new gem I stumbled upon and I think many of you may greatly enjoy. I must say I’m ridiculously excited over it! I’m going to give you guys a new review and the only hint is that it has already been TEN YEARS!!!
So on that note… Have a good one!
