The small New England town of Coventry is haunted by its memories of a deadly winter... in which loved ones were lost, families torn apart, and a town buried in a terrible blizzard.

Old ghosts trickle back, and this storm will prove even more terrifying and deadly than the last. With richly textured characters, scarred and haunted by the ghosts of those they loved most, Snowblind reinvents the ghost story for today's world.

" ... You got Slayer problems. You know what I find works real good with Slayers? Killing them." "Oh yeah, I did a couple Slayers in my time. Don't like to brag. Oh, who am I kidding, I love to brag. There was one Slayer, during the Boxer Rebellion ..." "We like to talk big, vampires do. 'I'm gonna destroy the world, ' -- just tough-guy talk, strutting around with your friends over a pint of blood ... Truth is, I like this world. You got dog racing, Manchester United, Love Boat, and you got people. Billions of people walking around like Happy Meals with legs ..." In the second hardcover installment of the bestselling Buffy the Vampire Slayer₉ series, Christopher Golden, coauthor of The Watcher's Guide ("fans will suck this tome dry"--Entertainment Weekly) and Immortal ("Golden and Holder smartly expand upon the show's slangy lingo [and] display deep insight into the characters."--Entertainment Weekly), presents a unique supernatural tale that finds fan-favorite demon lovers Spike and Drusilla wreaking havoc throughout war-torn Europe as only they can. As long as there have been demons, there have been Slayers. But Slayers have short life expectancies and high mortality rates. Which is why there exists a list of Pretty Maids All in a Row It's 1940, and Europe is ravaged by World War II -- an ideal environment for two gleefully destructive monsters. Drusilla's birthday -- that is, the anniversary of her resurrection as a vampire -- impends and her devoted paramour Spike wants to celebrate in style. What more perfect a gift than the legendary necklace known as Freyja's Strand -- a chain of metal so potently magical that it instantly imbues its wearer with the ability to shape-shift at will? The problem is, no one's sure that the bauble even exists. Until Spike learns of a demon named Skrymir, who claims not only to possess the necklace, but is willing to trade. Skrymir's true desire is to be rid of the most persistent thorns in his side, the Watchers' Council and the Slayer, so that he can implement his vision of world domination. Spike's task is to infiltrate Council head-quarters and get his hands on the list of all young women currently in training to take over as Slayer should they be called. In exchange for the necklace, Spike must kill the current Slayer, a brazen young woman named Sophie, as well as all of the Slayers-in-Waiting that exist -- the "pretty maids all in a row." To Spike, this sounds like fun, and he sets off on a spree. Sophie and her Watcher, Yanna, are determined to stop whoever has been slaughtering all of the potential Slayers. If Spike and Drusilla succeed with their plans of bloodlust and power, it could mean the end of the Chosen One -- all of the Chosen Ones -- forever

Those unwilling to abandon their homes created a new life on streets turned to canals and in buildings whose first three stories are underwater.Fifty years have passed since then, and The Drowning City is full of scavengers and water rats, poor people trying to eke out an existence, and those too proud or stubborn to be defeated by circumstance. Among them are fourteen year old Molly McHugh and her friend and employer, Felix Orlov. Once upon a time Orlov the Conjuror was a celebrated stage magician, but now he is an old man, a psychic medium, contacting the spirits of the departed for the grieving loved ones left behind. When a seance goes horribly wrong, Felix Orlov is abducted by strange men wearing gas masks and rubber suits. Molly finds herself on the run. Her flight leads her into the company of Simon Hodge, a Victorian detective who's kept himself alive with magic and steampunk mechanics, and the stalwart sidekick, Joe Golem, whose own past and true identity is a mystery to him, but who walks his own dreams as a man of stone and clay, brought to life for the sole purpose of hunting witches"--
