Summary

Love and death walk hand in hand...Dr. Sebastian Robarts is a man paralyzed by the fate of his adored wife, dead in childbirth, their only child with her. He searches for a way to build angels from women, a pastime known to Scotland Yard as murder. Robarts meets the Vistani seer named Trueblood, who becomes his assistant and leads him to the Antebellum-era domain of Riverbend, controlled by the sadistic Dr. Weldon, to create angels, unfettered by conventional morality, or even rules. When the murderer returns to earth, it is the task of a Vistani policeman and a woman with a strange connection to Robarts to stop him. If he can be stopped. Heaven's Bones skillfully blends horror and steampunk and classic Victorian literary style into something exotic and fascinating.

Perfect Victorian Ravenloft

The title says it all.
Excellent story, excellent performance.
If you like the Ravenloft setting but would like to see it outside standard fantasy, you need to read/hear this.

Tavia has outdone herself, complex story well done

Can't wait for the follow up book. Tavia Gilbert had made this rich story come to life to illustrate the author's characters. Loved it.
