Alyx has a rich history of writing critically acclaimed Regency and Paranormal Romance. Regarding her work, Publishers Weekly has said, “Harvey…delivers a fun adventure in the form of a Victorian mystery novel that captures the feel (and the flaws) of the age.” She's best known for the Drake Chronicles, a big fan-favorite especially among vamp fans.
We have put together an AMAZING "First Look" campaign full of exclusive reveals and a pre-order giveaway for readers. The bewitching fun will happen during the month of December leading up to the release of A BREATH OF FROST on January 7, 2014.
Alyxandra Harvey lives in a stone Victorian house in Ontario, Canada with a few resident ghosts who are allowed to stay as long as they keep company manners. She loves medieval dresses, used to be able to recite all of The Lady of Shalott by Tennyson, and has been accused, more than once, of being born in the wrong century. She believes this to be mostly true except for the fact that she really likes running water, women’s rights, and ice cream.
Among her favourite books are ‘The Wood Wife’ by Terri Windling, ‘Jane Eyre’ by Charlotte Bronte, and of course, ‘Pride and Prejudice’ by Jane Austen. Elizabeth Bennet is her hero because she’s smart and sassy, and Mr. Darcy is, well, yum.
Aside from the ghosts, she also lives with husband and their dogs. She likes cinnamon lattes, tattoos and books.

Now ghouls, hellhounds—and most terrifying of all, the spirits of dark witches known as the Greymalkin Sisters—are hunting and killing young witches for their powers. And, somehow, Emma is connected to the murders … because she keeps finding the bodies. Can the cousins seal the gates before another witch is killed …or even worse, before their gifts are stripped away?
