Overview

When Emily Darkwood inherited her mother's brooch she found herself plunged into a life-time of danger and mystery. The amber gem is a guide stone; one of many talismans from a forgotten age of arcane provenance that have individual and unique abilities and powers. Darkwood's stone draws the bearer and the forces of darkness together.

With this lodestone of darkness, and the able support of her young servant companion Jack Hobbs, she is ennobled as a crusader against evil and villainy—supernatural and criminal—as a seeker of the truth behind her parents' mysterious disappearances and presumed deaths.

However, holding the stone can also be a curse, for others seek its powers or to remain hidden from them; the criminal, the unnatural, and the otherworldly. In her quest to cast light against the darkness of the land she risks losing herself and all that she holds dear—her aunt and uncle who raised her, the medical career she so desperately desires, her friends and her chances of love and a family of her own.

Join Emily Darkwood and her young faithful servant Jack Hobbs and their allies on investigative adventures of derring-do with the supernatural and the villainous on the grey heathlands, in the dark graveyards, and on the fog-bound cobbled streets of Victorian England.

    Strange

    This twenty page short story is well written and very well edited. It is part of a series. It was free. It is also quite strange. There is some violence. It does not have any curse words, but it does have a lot of homosexual slang terms. There are also gay relationships. I hope those of you who read this review do not consider this a plot spoiler, or if you do, I hope you will forgive me, as I think you should know what kind of story this is. Stop reading here if you do not wish to know more about this short tale. This book is set in England, from the impression I got, in the 1800's. It is about a female doctor and her apprentice. They are also homosexual vampire hunters. They go to a Molly house. ( a new term for me) which is a house of prostitution for gay men. I am not going to say anything else, but it gets even more lewd and strange here. I did not like this book at all. Not because of the homosexuality but because the vulgarity. This book is for adult readers. I do not recommend it.

    This is a very good story with a great ending, but I'm disappointd in the scene where they confront Earnst.

    It seems unrealistic that their adversary could be beaten so easily. In each of the stories it seems that Ms. Darkwood never has to exert much effort to best her foe.
