From internationally bestselling author R. L. Weeks, a story of murder, deadly secrets begging to be revealed, and a paranormal romance that will leave you breathless.
Raven has been locked away from Victorian Society since she was nine. Now, eighteen, a secret comes out of the darkness that will pull her from the safety of her Grandmother's mansion and into a world where the very thing that makes her unique, is also a curse.
Girls who can see ghosts and memories are locked away for being insane, so Raven must keep her secret while communicating with the dead to hunt a serial killer, one that's a little too close to home.
Armed with her best friend, a ghost, and a man she's unsure if she can trust, Raven is forced onto the gas-lit streets of London. She must solve the string of murders that's almost identical to a case from before she was born before she becomes the next victim.
With her family tree rotting at the roots, creatures of the night slithering from the shadows, and a romantic interest that's more confusing than ever, can Raven make the ultimate sacrifice to save the ones she loves? Or will the darkness take her forever?

Interesting concept but poorly written
Writing a Victorian novel with modern English idioms creates many clashing anachronisms which detract from what could be an entertaining plot.
