Society for Paranormals (Boxed set) by Vered Ehsani

3 Books. 400+ Reviews. Lara Croft meets Jane Austen in colonial Kenya.

A paranormal detective refuses to let danger, death and unwanted suitors inconvenience her in British East Africa. These are the first three cases in the “Society for Paranormals” series, where African myth meets Victorian manners. If you adore “Pride & Prejudice”, appreciate British humor, enjoy paranormal mysteries, or would love to experience adventure in colonial Africa, then get ready to start your supernatural safari.

Ghosts of Tsavo (Case 1): Armed with Victorian etiquette and a dead husband, Beatrice Knight arrives in colonial Kenya desperate for a pot of tea. She’ll need more than that if she’s to unravel the mystery of the Ghosts of Tsavo without being eaten in the process.

The Automaton’s Wife (Case 2): Beatrice Knight’s dead husband has absconded with an automaton, but she has other problems: a killer has moved into town. As luck should dictate, who should be the next target but Mrs Knight herself?

Revenge of the Mantis (Case 3): Beatrice Knight’s arch nemesis is about to pay an unsolicited visit. Mrs. Knight must now answer one critical question: what, or whom, is she prepared to sacrifice in order to defeat the Mantis?

“Unique & refreshingly funny” “I found this book truly entertaining” “Wit, adventure & an air of mystery…” “This series is inventive and delightful. I truly enjoy reading the humorous prose, written in an enchanting Victorian dialect.”

"A surprisingly funny, witty, and good read."

"The mix of the African Savannah and the paranormal in the 1890s, not to mention the British twist... I found this book truly entertaining. It kept my interest from cover to cover. I even caught myself laughing out loud at certain points.”

“Ms. Ehsani's supporting cast is as delightful as her protagonist, Beatrice Knight, a woman who is not missish or dependent on others to deal with the paranormal challenges that continue to find her. The story and the characters are evolving, a welcome trait that is not always found in a book series.”

“I went back and reread the series from the start because there are so many little things that make sense in light of the new disclosures in each book. If you like medium-suspenseful mysteries with a touch of colonial England and lots of quirky humor, then these books are for you.”

"Bee, the main character is hilarious. Her wit, her dry humor, her observations are not only refreshing but addictive. Vered Ehsani's writing is just excellent."

I have just finished the first 4 books in Ms. Ehsani's series featuring Beatrice Knight. I was thoroughly delighted and entertained by her tales of paranormal creatures who can do such interesting things as move from human form to another such as werewolf, giant bat, lightening God, lions, etc. For the most part, her paranormal acquaintences become her good friends and, in her adventures, come to her rescue. This series takes place in East Africa in 1900. I enjoyed her descriptions of life in and around early Nairobi and her use of what I'm going to call African folk tales. I liked the first four so well, I've bought the next two. Highly recommend these books.

Really liked this series. Has a Victorian" true blood" feel to it. Not too heavy and the plot keeps moving. The value was there as well: 3 books for 4.99. Will look to continue this series.

I read the first four books because of the story line. The premise is somewhat unusual, the characters are well defined and interesting, but best of all, the writing is excellent. Some of the phrasing and descriptions are beautiful and elegant. The story is fast paced and there is a thread of subtle humor throughout. Sometimes it's laugh out loud funny! I enjoyed these books immensely and I recommend this author to every serious reader.

The melding of the Victorian era and supernatural was well done. This is a very entertaining book. Can't wait for the next installment.

The first three books in Vered Ehsani's adventures of paranormal investigator Beatrice Knight are incredible. Great storyline, fast paced and fantastic characters. My only complaint is that I can't put them down so it's over way too soon. Can't wait for the movie (someone MUST be working on the screenplay)!

It took me some time to get started on this series: I have a Rather Large reading list. Once I got going I was overjoyed that I'd ordered the boxed set - I didn't have to wait for the next "chapter". What do I think? In a word? Amazing! "Miss Marple, as a young woman, goes to Africa as a piece of luggage, steps into the supernatural world of 'The Ghost and The Darkness' and loses a hand." If you don't know what any of that means, then you have two choices 1) shake your head and walk away or 2) read this series. You'll be a much happier person if you choose Option 2. Believe me on that! It often happens that writers of supernatural series' tend to get a bit carried away, in my opinion. That doesn't happen in Vered's case: in stead of "oh no, not again!" it's "oh wow, that's amazing!" The titles of her books give you a good idea of what's inside; however, they are also a minor mystery in themselves. Personally I love when that happens. I'm sure you will, too. Have fun!
