I have such a soft spot for Mina Murray books. I fell in love with her in the film versions of Dracula when I was younger, then she became my personal queen and savior in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. If she’s a lead, I’m there!
An electrifying retelling of a classic tale, THE BEAST OF LONDON is the first book of the Mina Murray series.
Mina Murray once lived an adventurous life, but after a tragedy in the forests of Transylvania, she left it all behind. Now she has settled into a quiet routine as a schoolteacher in London, engaged to the respectable solicitor Jonathan Harker, attempting to fit into the stuffy upper class London society to which he belongs.
Her dark past comes careening into her present when Jonathan is abducted by a group of vampires from a society ball. Determined to rescue him, she teams up with her former paramour Abraham Van Helsing and his colleague, Scotland Yard Inspector John Seward.
As they pursue Jonathan’s abductors from England to the Low Countries and beyond, Mina realizes that Jonathan’s abduction is tied to a larger threat against humanity…
If you love adventure, romance, and mystery with a paranormal twist, then this is the book for you.
