Title:  The strangely beautiful tale of Miss Percy Parker

Author:  Leanna Renee Hieber

Collection:  Adult Fiction

What fortune awaited sweet, timid Percy Parker at Athens Academy? Hidden in the dark heart of Victorian London, the Romanesque school was dreadfully imposing, a veritable fortress, and little could Percy guess what lay inside. She had never met its powerful and mysterious Professor Alexi Rychman, knew nothing of the growing shadows, of the Ripper and other supernatural terrors against which his coterie stood guard. She saw simply that she was different, haunted, with her snow white hair, pearlescent skin and uncanny gift. This arched stone doorway was a portal to a new life, to an education far from what could be had at a convent- and it was an invitation to an intimate yet dangerous dance at the threshold of life and death.

I gravitate to authors who can write pictures with words, and Ms. Hieber is one of the best. She injects the story with layers that sweep you at a thrilling pace to the explosive finale. A rare gem in paranormal story telling and I highly recommend it for adults and teens alike.
