1810 England, the height of the Napoleonic wars. It was thought that humans walked the path of enlightenment leaving monsters and dark things behind. However, those monsters and night stalkers merely hide in the darkness, as a young maid, Bernadette, soon finds out.
I was going to comment last page. "Bernadette seems to angsty now. She has been through so much she should at lease be trying to get a grip."
*chuckle* But it was all rationalizing to justify drinking some tasty blood from a maiden.
