Fast-moving, Gothic adventure, love and dark comedy combine as the rascally French émigré and ex- highwayman, Émile Dubois, and the man vampire inventor Kenrick clash once more in a sequel to ‘Ravensdale’ and ‘That Scoundrel Émile Dubois’ (both B.R.A.G. medallion winners).
The man vampire Kenrick and his savage man Arthur have retreated to Kenrick’s sphere outside time after a fight to the death with Émile and his right hand man, Georges. They plot to return, aided by a team of grotesquely comic monster men and a sinister widow who has her own reasons for co-operating with Kenrick.
Kenrick’s one passion remains reunion with his lost first wife.
When Émile’s maid, Éloise, comes on Arthur, seemingly dying, she cannot resist reviving him with the sort of blood transfusion that only vampires need. Drawn into Kenrick’s household, her dreams of humanising Arthur seem futile.
Meanwhile, the birth of a son to Émile’s wife Sophie makes him more than ever determined to ensure that all stays still in Kenrick’s house on the remote Famau Mountain in North Wales.
He and his cousin, the reckless Reynaud Ravensdale – also a former highwayman – travel up from southern England to find out. On the road they meet the mysterious siren, with disasterous consequences.
Warned anonymously, Sophie and Isabella, Reynaud’s wife and former highwaywoman accomplice follow, along with Émile’s right-hand man and former comrade-in-arms Georges.
A bloodbath seems unavoidable. Yet, the resourceful Sophie has been doing some strange experiments of her own…
