1 Review
From Australia's Queen of supernatural fiction comes a tale of an angel's demonic intentions... Sophie needs to pay the rent and a story on the occult would sell around Hallowe'en time. The Lodge of the Seven Stars is good for research but Sophie's a sceptic and doesn't believe in any of the rituals. Until she meets The Wanderer who has a story to tell her: a story of three sisters in 17th-century London, their love for each other torn apart by an angel. Not plague, nor Paradise Lost, nor the Great Fire of London can prevent the youngest from trying to save her sisters as they sink deeper and deeper into the angel's seductions. And Sophie passes the point of no return...
