A gripping story shot through with the horror of haunting. Brought up attending séances at which her mother falsely raised spirits from the dead, Violet reckons she knows that the past can’t really hurt you. But now, enjoying a life of luxury as a result of her mother’s trickery, Violet is herself haunted by a young girl begging her to uncover her murderer. Violet must act fast to find out the truth and prevent further deaths.

Synopsis

Haunting Violet by Alyxandra Harvey

Violet's mother has worked as a fraudulent medium for a decade and Violet has taken part in enough of her mother's tricks to feel more than a little jaded about anything supernatural. The ghosts, however, believe in Violet and she's been seeing them everywhere. One ghost in particular needs Violet to use her emerging gift to solve her murder ...and prevent the ghost's twin sister from suffering the same fate.

Reviews

Praise for Haunting Violet:

'I loved this ghostly romp through Victorian high society, from the author of the vampiric Drake Chronicles. Plenty of romance and a sexy, sassy heroine' - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

Praise for My Love Lies Bleeding:

'Harvey builds an engaging world of vampire cultures balanced with a smart mix of darkness and humour' - Publishers Weekly

'Witty, sly, and never disappointing ... Fun, funny, and a relief from Twilight wannabes, this first instalment in the Drake Chronicles has lots to offer for savvy readers and gives vampire addicts a nice twist on their usual fare' - Booklist
