Arabella Holmes dreams of becoming a purveyor of abnormal science, a Boneseeker for the Mutter Museum. Henry Watson arrives at the Mutter with a double assignment: To become a finder of abnormal antiquities and to watch over Arabella. Together, they are assigned to a most secret exploration. The hand of a Nephilim has been unearthed in upstate New York. When the pair is tasked to find and recover the skeleton, they discover they are the second team to have been deployed and the first team is dead. If Henry can get Arabella to talk to him, he might just be able to keep his promise to protect her from whomever doesn't want them to uncover the truth.

The Violet Hour
Allegra Teagarden, a musical prodigy, flees her father’s dominance and abuse while touring in pre-civil war Charleston, South Carolina. Plagued by depression over her mother’s suicide during their previous visit, she escapes in an effort to piece together the details behind her mother’s mysterious demise.

Down to her final coin, Allegra happens on Charleston’s Fancy, the first southern amusement park, which is searching for musicians for its orchestra. At first, the park seems her salvation; but she quickly realizes she has traded the dominance of her father, for the even more terrifying madness of the owner, Silas.

Allegra meets the dashing Brighton LeFroy, Fancy’s engineer and pyrotechnics master. His shabby clothing cannot conceal the brilliant mind beneath. The musician’s whisper he is a witch, is obsessed with storms, and is rumored...to fly. And despite the danger, despite her own misgivings, Allegra is inexplicable drawn to him. She ventures to his reclusive home on Fire Isle during a thunderstorm and together they seek to unravel an ancient mystery.

The Requiem Red
Patient 29.

A monster roams the halls of Soothing Hills Asylum. Three girls dead. 29 is endowed with the curse…or gift of perception. She hears messages in music, sees lyrics in paintings. And the corn. A lifetime asylum resident, the orchestral corn music is the only constant in her life.

Mason, a new, kind orderly, sees 29 as a woman, not a lunatic. And as his belief in her grows, so does her self- confidence. That perhaps she might escape, might see the outside world.

But the monster has other plans. The missing girls share one common thread...each was 29's cell mate.

Will she be next?
