This author's preferred edition reunites Heiber's critically-acclaimed first two books (The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker and The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker) and has been revised for Tor's publication.
Persephone Parker is different, with her snow-white hair, pearlescent skin, and uncanny ability to see and communicate with ghosts. Percy never imagined that she had immense power, much less that she would someday find true love in a most unexpected place.
Athens Academy, an elite boarding school in Queen Victoria's London, is the citadel of the Guard, an ancient order that battles the forces of evil. Professor Alexi Richman, who leads the Guard, dreams of their missing seventh member, and fears that without her, they will be unable to defeat the hellhound wreaking havoc in Whitechapel - killings attributed to Jack the Ripper.
As ancient Greek myths begin playing out in gaslit London. Percy and her new friends and allies must overcome their preconceptions about each other before they can set the world to rights.
