Revenge of the Mantis: Beatrice Knight’s arch nemesis is about to pay an unsolicited visit. Mrs. Knight must now answer one critical question: what, or whom, is she prepared to sacrifice in order to defeat the Mantis?
“Unique & refreshingly funny” “I found this book truly entertaining” “Wit, adventure & an air of mystery…” “This series is inventive and delightful. I truly enjoy reading the humorous prose, written in an enchanting Victorian dialect.” “Jane Austen meets Lara Croft.”
These are the first three cases in the “Society for Paranormals”, where African myth meets Victorian manners. If you adore “Pride & Prejudice”, appreciate British humor, enjoy paranormal mysteries, or would love to experience adventure in colonial Africa, this box set is for you.
“A surprisingly funny, witty, and good read.”
“The mix of the African Savannah and the paranormal in the 1890s, not to mention the British twist… I found this book truly entertaining. It kept my interest from cover to cover. I even caught myself laughing out loud at certain points.”
“Ms. Ehsani’s supporting cast is as delightful as her protagonist, Beatrice Knight, a woman who is not missish or dependent on others to deal with the paranormal challenges that continue to find her. The story and the characters are evolving, a welcome trait that is not always found in a book series.”
“I went back and reread the series from the start because there are so many little things that make sense in light of the new disclosures in each book. If you like medium-suspenseful mysteries with a touch of colonial England and lots of quirky humor, then these books are for you.”
“Bee, the main character is hilarious. Her wit, her dry humor, her observations are not only refreshing but addictive. Vered Ehsani’s writing is just excellent.”
