The Serpent in Heaven : a gripping fantasy thriller from the bestselling author of True Blood Paperback / softback

Part of the Gunnie Rose series

Paperback / softback


'Immersive, involving, suspenseful, and intriguing, with a main character you'll love' LEE CHILDNo.1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Charlaine Harris returns to her alternate history of the United States where magic is an acknowledged but despised power in this fourth installment of the Gunnie Rose series. Felicia, Lizbeth Rose's half-sister and a student at the Grigori Rasputin school in San Diego - capital of the Holy Russian Empire - is caught between her own secrets and powerful family struggles.

As a granddaughter of Rasputin, she provides an essential service to the haemophiliac Tsar Alexei, providing him with the blood transfusions that keep him alive.

Felicia is treated like a nonentity at the bedside of the tsar, and at the school she's seen as a charity case with no magical ability. But when Felicia is snatched outside the school, the facts of her heritage begin to surface.

Felicia turns out to be far more than the Russian-Mexican waif Lizbeth rescued.

As Felicia's history unravels and her true abilities become known, she comes under attack from all directions.

Only her courage will keep her alive. Love The Walking Dead, Westworld or True Blood? You will ADORE this gritty and wildly entertaining tale, set in a parallel reality of the United States where magic is an outlawed power. __________Praise for Charlaine Harris:'A gripping, twisty-turny, thrill-ride of a read' Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author'Harris has a remarkable talent for world building' Booklist'Will leave readers enthralled.
