From Goodreads: An ancient curse resurfaces. From deep within the English forests, a hideous creature threatens to re-emerge, stronger than ever. Meanwhile, young girls are disappearing from the streets of London, and rumors of heinous rituals abound.
Fearing for her very life, a young actress working at the famed Lyceum Theatre calls desperately on Jason Dark for help. On the eve of Walpurgis Night, the Geisterjäger meets another formidable enemy as he comes face to face with the Blood Witch. Who will prevail?
Henkel again intertwines his novella with history as Bram Stoker is introduced at his Lyceum theater. I absolutely love the literary references and how Henkel keeps writing these famous writers into his work… first H.G. Wells, then Jules Verne, and now Bram Stoker. Although Stoker is only in the novel in passing, with few lines, it makes a literary buff, such as myself, giddy.
This was a very interesting story about lycanthropes and witches, bringing them together as an ancient curse wreaks havoc on London. It is another very well written, unique tale that I recommend in this gothic, mystery series. Three stars.
I received a copy of this novel from the author in exhange for an honest review.
