Number 12, Acteon Place is more than just a London town house. It is a harbour for the most dangerous enchantress in Britannia. There are prisoners in the cellar. Mysterious magical experiments in the attic. A fairy killer on the loose. A hunted governess, desperate to protect the two children she betrayed.
Other features of the house include an excellent cook. Exquisite wallpaper. Slightly homicidal carpet… depending who steps on it. And a yellow cat who provides more questions than answers.
Flavia Wednesday and her friends might not all escape this house alive. For those that do… there are even more perils beyond its walls.
If you enjoy gaslamp fantasy and faerie Victoriana, you’ll love this second volume in the Sparks & Philtres novella series.
