The Woman in Black by M.Y. Halidom


During a trip to a nearby village, the proudly unmarried Sir Ashleigh Carruthers attends an evening service in the small local church. There, he finds himself seated next to the alluring and hypnotically beautiful Woman in Black and is instantly enraptured. But when the vicar collapses mid-sermon after looking upon the Woman’s face, Carruthers is left to wonder: Who is this mysterious woman? And should he be worried about her pointed ears, her pointed teeth, and her ability to vanish into thin air?
Featuring a bewitching and depraved antiheroine who leaves a pile of bloody bodies in her wake,
The Woman in Black is the not-quite-living embodiment of every Victorian man’s worst nightmare.
