The Dark Victorian: Risen Volume One - Elizabeth Watasin

The ghost of a kindly Quaker, and a very cheeky skull with a top hat, fight supernatural crimes in London, 1880, during a curious murder spree perpetrated by the illegally reanimated dead.


How could you anyone resist a premise like that?


The Dark Victorian, Risen by Elizabeth Watasin tells a wonderfully gothic, gritty, and intriguing story, full of real-world Victorian values, thrilling dangers, deep mysteries, and otherworldly adventure.


Artifice the ghost, and Jim Dastard the skull, are agents of the mysterious "Prince Albert's Secret Commission."  Both of our heroes were executed for the crimes of their previous life.  Now they have both been brought back to half-life and put into the service of the state.  But while they have no conscious memory of their previous incarnation, some things of Artifice's past are seeping out of the shadows now to haunt her...  Meanwhile, there's a necromancer running around, raising dead children and sending them out to kill their parents.


Mysteries abound in the shadows of these cold, fogy, London streets.  If you're in the mood for something chilling, thrilling, and unique, then give this brilliant novella a try!  You can even read a sample of  it on Goodreads, right now!


This novella is available on Amazon.com in paperback and eBook.
