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.
Well Angela, honestly I think it's far too late to pretend Bernadette's not knee deep in them already. I can't blame her all that much because even if the politics is what will kill you, a name for what's going to do the killing could be a courtesy.
