Non-GLBTAugustine Fleur went into the grave knowing that curiosity killed the cat burglar, but when she rose she discovered a world where curiosity kept one alive. A newly risen Grave Watcher, Augustine stumbles through her new world –Paris, London, and elsewhere-- under the guidance of Sebastien Crowle, who has his own baggage. But while Augustine may have left the grave behind, there are those who would much rather she never did.
The Ghost King, a mythical entity of terrible power is stalking her, demanding something be returned to him. Except Augustine has no memory of the theft, and he’s getting impatient. With a grave disturbed in London, and vampires to blame, it also begins to look like the long-held peace between vampires and Watchmen is coming to an end.
Augustine must unlock her memories if she’s going to solve the riddle of her time in the grave and save the people she’s come to care for. She may just die trying. Again.
Publisher’s Note: The Grave Watchers series is primarily GLBT in nature. However, this volume contains non-GLBT relationships.
