QueenVictoriaZombies.jpgOkay, so remember Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? The announcement gained some mixed opinions back before its release. Now, however, there's another classic tale-turned-gory but rather than the Regency love story of the Bennets and Mr Darcy, we have...um, Queen Victoria.

And some demons.


Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter by A E Moorat is due for release on 15th October. Here's the blurb:

There were many staff at Kensington Palace, fulfilling many roles; a man who was employed to catch rats, another whose job it was to sweep the chimneys. That there was someone expected to hunt Demons did not shock the new Queen; that it was to be her was something of a surprise.

London, 1838. Queen Victoria is crowned; she receives the orb, the sceptre, and an arsenal of blood-stained weaponry. Because if Britain is about to become the greatest power of the age, there's the small matter of the demons to take care of first...

But rather than dreaming of demon hunting, it is her love for Prince Albert that occupies her thoughts. Can she dedicate her life to saving her country when her heart belongs elsewhere?

With lashings of glistening entrails, decapitations, and foul demons, this masterly new portrait will give a fresh understanding of a remarkable woman, a legendary monarch, and quite possibly the best Demon Hunter the world has ever seen...

An axe-wielding, demon-killing Queen of England? Very odd, but admittedly, it sounds like a lot of fun!
