Little does he know Newcastle's real identity.
Thus begins the struggle between a greedy man who may or may not actually love Felicia and the creature who saved her when she was a child, one wanting her money and her body, the other wanting the girl herself.
This is a very well-written story, giving not only a chilling atmosphere of gothic dread, but also some interesting information about the era in which it is set. There was amusing and descriptive and well-turned phrases. The ending is totally unexpected in every way.
The cover is also very interesting since it features a picture of Mexican horror actor Germán Robles in a scene taken directly from one of his films.

Saved by a stranger she believes is an anger when her parents are killed in a train wreck, Felicia Lamb grows up believing in the supernatural and the Afterlife. She comes under the influence of Mr. Newcastle, a medium, in reality the vampire, still watching over her.
Felicia has things other than a vampire to worry about however, thought she's unaware, for her fiance, Reginald Callendar is a gambler and a drunkard, left destitute by his wealthy uncles death and determined to marry Felicia to gain her fortune so he can spend it. He comes up against Newcastle, seeing in the medium a rival for Felicia's wealth if nor her love.
What follows is a Victorian-set gothic novel with a great deal of description, notations about the life of the times, and a chilling atmosphere enhanced by that creeping yellow fog. The ending was a surprise.
I didn't realize this was part of a series and I wish now I had a few of the other entries to read also.
