GOD SAVE THE QUEEN

by Locke, Kate

The steampunk urban fantasy debut of the year!

Queen Victoria rules with an immortal fist in this steampunk urban fantasy debut. What if Queen Victoria was a vampire? What if she was still alive and what if she was the villain? This is the world that half-blood Alexandra (Xandra) has been born into -- a world where horse-drawn carriages, ballgowns, and corsets mash with the modern fashions of the humans outside of the vampire aristocracy that has ruled the world for the past 175 years. Set in the modern day, GOD SAVE THE QUEEN features a Victorian age that never ended.
The undead matriarch of a Britain where the Aristocracy is made up of werewolves and vampires, where goblins live underground and mothers know better than to let their children out after dark. A world where being nobility means being infected with the Plague (side-effects include undeath), Hysteria is the popular affliction of the day, and leeches are considered a delicacy. And a world where technology lives side by side with magic. The year is 2012 and Pax Britannia still reigns. Xandra Vardan is a member of the elite Royal Guard, and it is her duty to protect the Aristocracy. But when her sister goes missing, Xandra will set out on a path that undermines everything she believed in and uncover a conspiracy that threatens to topple the empire. And she is the key-the prize in a very dangerous struggle.
