After months of searching for his missing wife, ex-priest turned demonologist Hunter Massabrook gets a call that Laura has turned up in a New Orleans hospital. But the woman barely looks like his wife, and she’s going by a different name. Worse, she’s obsessed with another man and memories of a life she’s lived in a place called Nocturne House.
As Laura relays the story of her disappearance and the people responsible, she also reveals her connection to a dangerous cult, a group of modern-day vampires that controls and manipulates through psychological strongholds, supernatural entities, and all-too-human wicked intentions.
Hunter soon realizes that Laura is still in danger, and she remains bound to the house through her heart, mind, and blood.
In the final suspenseful installment of the Legacy of Darkness series, supernatural and human evil collide in a tale about the power and danger of living outside society’s expectations and the relationships that can ruin or redeem us.
“If you’ve read previous books by London Clarke, then you will love this one. If you haven’t, she’s about to become your new favorite author.”—Readers’ Favorite review of Whickering Place
Just like with London’s previous works, I was immediately drawn in and not just because I was eager to find out what happened after Whickering Place! I loved that it was a continuation that felt like a brand new story bringing the pieces together without feeling like I would have missed anything if I didn’t read the rest of the series.
London’s writing is both of this modern world, creating the stories to take place today with an old-world, Gothic feeling that’s unmistakeable. Her characters are deep and dark in a way that makes you like them no matter what they’ve gotten themselves into.
Without wanting to give too much away, I give it 5 stars and invite you to check out! Thank you Netgalley, London Clarke and BooksGoSocial for the ARC!

She’s been obsessed with vampires and haunted houses ever since she was a kid.
She grew up reading gothic tales like Wuthering Heights and Dracula and came to love the romantic and tragic heroes. Barnabas Collins from Dark Shadows was one of her first crushes.
She considers herself a recovering runaway and confesses that she moved to England (and Australia a few years later) in search of a man who was the perfect amalgamation of Dracula, Hamlet, Heathcliff, and Mr. Rochester. Fortunately, she never found him and ended up marrying a great guy.
She has an undergraduate degree in music and a grad degree in creative writing and has worked a slew of jobs, including receptionist, legal secretary, literary assistant, high school English teacher, and freelance editor.
She loves bats and goes to great lengths to encourage them to hang out around her house. (They eat half their weight in mosquitoes in the summer!)
She dreams of having her own vineyard and dog rescue. Who knows, maybe the two could be combined?
