    Summary

    Just as they start thinning the crowd, Trevor dripping with sweat and viscera and exhaustion, another wave appears and he curses loudly. Despite his failing vision, he can see Sypha faltering, can see Alucard’s unnatural paleness and the shaking in his hands. It hits him, then, like jumping into a river in the middle of winter. It chills him to the bone and makes his heart clench with an emotion he does not want to name. He fights with a renewed vigor, if only to make time.

    He’s starting to lose it, lose time, lose himself to the repetition of slashing and slicing and stabbing.

    Or: in which the trio is thrown backwards and, unfortunately, can't keep things a secret.

    Summary

    Taproot (n): the oldest, most central root; the anchor from which all else arises.

    Every family has its history, its roots, diving down into the shadowy, secretive earth—and there is no such thing as a bloodless inheritance.

    [Sequel to Wellspring: in which things happen, new faces appear, and our heroes learn more about themselves than they might have wanted.]

    Summary

    Lisa had no obligation to seek out true medical knowledge all because she hated the notion of resorting to leeches and bloodletting. No one asked her to do what they considered to be the unthinkable, the unholy. Those patients would have gone about their daily lives had they never met her. They would have also died far too early. It was her life's calling to help these people.

    And look at what it brought her in the end.

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. And a husband. And answers to the dark and malignant mystery that plagues Tepes Hall.

    Of course, Sypha Belnades isn’t involved in any of that; she’s just here to do her duty as a Governess and get paid. But her curiosity soon gets the better of her – just what is the nature of the grievance between the attractive young groundskeeper and the handsome but rather aloof young master of the house? Why is it that certain parts of the Tepes Estate are barred to her? And what on earth is Dr Tepes doing with all that blood?

    Before long, Sypha will find herself at the heart of a centuries old mystery involving love, monsters, death, undeath, at least one terrible fire, and several Abnormally Large Dogs.
