Fast-moving, Gothic adventure, love and dark comedy combine as the rascally French émigré and ex- highwayman, Émile Dubois, and the man vampire inventor Kenrick clash once more.
Kenrick and his savage man Arthur have retreated to his sphere outside time. They plot to return, aided by a team of grotesquely comic monster men and a sinister widow who has her own reasons for co-operating with Kenrick, whose one passion remains reunion with his lost first wife.
When Émile’s maid, Éloise, comes on Arthur seemingly dying, she cannot resist reviving him with the sort of blood transfusion that only vampires need. Drawn into Kenrick’s household, her dreams of humanising Arthur seem futile.
Meanwhile, the birth of a son to Émile’s wife Sophie has made him anxious to see that all is yet still in Kenrick’s house on the remote Famau Mountain in North Wales.
He and his cousin, the reckless Reynaud Ravensdale – also a former highwayman – travel up from southern England to find out. On the road they meet the mysterious siren, with disasterous consequences.
Warned anonymously, Sophie and Isabella, Reynaud’s wife and former highwaywoman accomplice follow, along with Émile’s comrade-in-arms Georges.
A bloodbath seems unavoidable. Still, Sophie has been doing some experiments of her own…
While written as a sequel to ‘That Scoundrel Émile Dubois’ (available free on Amazon) and ‘Ravensale’, ‘Where World’s Meet’ can be enjoyed as a stand alone adventure.’

About the Author
Lucinda Elliot was born in Buckinghamshire, England, and lived in a series of rambling, isolated Gothic houses, which her parents were renovating before it became fashionable. As they would have made fine settings for Gothic novels, perhaps that is why she writes historical Gothic.
