God Save the Queen: Book 1 of the Immortal Empire - Immortal Empire (Paperback)Kate Locke (author)
- In stock online
The Year is 2012 - and Queen Victoria still rules with an immortal fist.
She's the undead matriarch of a Britain where the Aristocracy is made up of werewolves and vampires, where goblins live underground and mothers know better than to let their children out after dark. A world where technology lives side by side with magic, where being nobility means being infected with the Plague (side-effects include undeath) and Hysteria is the popular affliction of the day.
Xandra Vardan is a member of the elite Royal Guard, and it's her duty to protect the Aristocracy. But things get complicated when her sister goes missing. Xandra will not only realise she's the prize in a dangerous power struggle - but she'll also uncover a conspiracy that threatens to topple the empire itself.

If you like Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series, you enjoy urban fantasy and kick-ass heroines, with a slathering of steampunk, this is the book for you * Novels on the Run *
A great romp through alternate London, a fun and exciting read that's hard to put down . . . Seriously, I loved this book and had a hard time formulating a review that was more than "crazy good shit" and "this books kicks ass." . . . I can't wait for book 2 to see what happens to Xandra next. Can't I have it now? * Steamed! *
A fantastic debut by Kate Locke and I highly recommend it! A fresh and wonderful voice to Urban Fantasy * BookThing *
