Publisher's summary

Shade: The Frankenstein Saga: The Complete Trilogy: Books One Through Three

A dangerous holiday. A deadly curse.

When Mary Shelley visits Lord Byron in the Swiss Alps, she hopes it will be a welcome distraction from her broken heart. Instead, she’s surrounded by enigmatic guests with dangerous secrets. From the moment of her arrival, Mary and the others are forbidden to leave the villa after dark.

But tales of feral beasts aren’t the only dangers. John Polidori, a handsome guest, fervently pursues local legends that the dead can rise. When the group plays a game of storytelling, they weave tales of nightmarish ghouls - and Mary learns their harmless stories have the power to conjure.

The dead will stalk the villa. And their royal master will stop at nothing to claim Mary as his own.

Dusk: Book Two

Byron warned them of hungry beasts prowling in the woods. Mary didn't believe him.

Then she saw one - after it ripped apart a pack of wolves.

Now Byron is gone, and both John and Percy may have fallen prey to hydrophobia. On top of that, Claire has gone into premature labor and Mary will do anything to save her stepsister's baby.

She'll even ride off to Geneva alone, seeking a midwife, knowing she might not return before dusk, when the vampire-like creatures will begin to hunt again.

Dawn: Book Three

Dawn is almost here. Mary thought they’d be safe. But they may never be safe again.

She doesn't know who to trust - even John seems different. She worries he may have been bitten by the sangsue.

If she was worried about her own safety, that would be bad enough. But she has Claire's baby to care for, and she can't lose another child. She just can't

She’d be cursed if that happened.
