Series: Lady Jessica, Monster Hunter #1
Genres: Historical, Urban Fantasy
Lady Jessica McAlpin is the commander of The Black Diamonds, the Great British Empire's covert monster-hunting division.
With her crew of criminals, misfits and desperadoes, Lady Jessica soars above the land in the airship HMS Zephyr, tracking down the diabolical foes of the Empire.
When rumors surface of a vampyre nest in the heart of the Capital, Lady Jessica and her companions are sent to investigate. What they discover is more terrible than their worst imaginings, leaving them shaken, scarred and in some instances changed forever.
Heart of the Empire is the first episode in a series of action and character driven steampunk adventures featuring Lady Jessica and The Black Diamonds.
Short in length, each episode is designed to be standalone: though they are linked by an overall story arc which will develop as the 'season' progresses.
