About this title


A fantasy novel involving the fate of a beautiful but friendless woman who works in a bookshop. Her father's sinister family begins to intrude upon her life, and she goes to live in their rambling mansion. There she falls under the influence of the handsome Adamus, with horrible consequences.

From Publishers Weekly:

Rachaela Day is an emotionally distant bookshop clerk in present-day London. Abandoned before birth by her enigmatic father, Rachaela has lived alone since the death of her mother. She accepts a mysterious invitation to stay at the seaside house of Scarabae with her estranged father and his family. The Scarabae, whose existence Rachaela's mother fearfully concealed, eventually reveal themselves to be a clan of vampires who must interbreed to keep their bloodlines intact. Mesmerized by her father's spell and seduced, Rachaela flees, only to find that she is pregnant with the heir to the family's legacy. Twelve years later, Rachaela must return to the Scarabae to rescue her daughter, Ruth, who has been taken back in order to fulfill her horrible destiny. Lee ( Sabella ) writes horror stylishly, with passages that often approach the lyrical. Unfortunately, certain elements in this work are overwhelmed by her verbose descriptions, most notably those of the places where the story is set. Additionally, the narrative, which moves at a steady, albeit lingering pace, contains many characters and events that strongly recall similar vampire works .
