    Summary

    The Murray House is not old, not ancient like the other buildings and monuments of London that stretch back hundreds of years. It is relatively new, built specifically for Sir Malcolm Murray and whatever lost souls he chooses to surround himself with. The house is new, but it has seen horror and miracles and all number of supernatural entities.

    Vanessa thinks she is quite like the house.

     

    Or,Vanessa, and grief.

    Summary

    Keep your words
    Keep your love, if that's what you want to call it.
    Keep anything you could offer me.
    Nothing you can give me will make me satiated.
    I am so much more.

    Victoria was taught many things by her mother, but she only took two to heart:

    Death is anything but serene, and no matter how beautiful the poetry nothing can change that.
    Women are the true life-givers, and life is bloody, brutal, painful business.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Or, Victor is born Victoria, but her name still means "to conquer" and she still seeks to pierce the veil between life and death.

    Summary

    Ethan Chandler, not for the first time, has found himself drawn to the wolf cage in the London Zoo. There he sees a young woman kneeling before the cage, totally unafraid. She mysteriously starts to tell him his story, knowing what no one should know. She reminds him of Vanessa Ives, seeming, even on this brief acquaintance, to possess knowledge that few possess. Has she enchanted him, for she takes him to her flat where he sees the "tools of her trade" laid out before him. Even though she tells him she is a virgin, something tells him a very strange thing is happening as she kneels between his legs and starts to take down his trousers
