Narrators Steve West and Henrietta Meire highlight the horror and humor in this fascinating blend of gothic mystery, magic, and romance. Roger Weathersby is an aspiring physician who unearths corpses in exchange for medical instruction. When he is framed for a series of brutal murders, Roger turns to his childhood friend, Princess Sibylla, whose blood magic may be his only hope of escaping the hangman's noose. West's deep baritone captures the atmosphere of the Victorian streets, rendering all characters, from the lowliest urchin to the most exalted surgeon, with exquisite detail. Meire brings out Sibylla's refined character in a posh accent that fully communicates her determination and drive. Together, they create a thoroughly engaging listen that will intrigue and amaze by turns. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
