Synopsis

The Grimstones Collection by Asphyxia

Hello, my name is Martha Grimstone. Shall I tell you my best secret? One day I'm going to be Lady Martha the Magnificent. I don't know what my special talent is, but I hope to find it any day now. I live in a grand old house in a valley full of rare and thirsty herbs, which my grandfather uses to heal and comfort people. If only he would let me into his apothecary so I could work on my very own spells...The Grimstones Collection contains four gothic fairytales about a giant egg, a magical doll's house, a stubborn whirlwind, and a school of very great tradition.
