""Action, adventure, steampunk, and blazing hot seduction...Bec McMaster offers it all."—Eve Silver, author of Sins of the Flesh

A brilliantly creative debut where vampires, werewolves, and clockwork creatures roam the mist–shrouded streets of London...

When Nowhere is Safe

Most people avoid the dreaded Whitecapel district. For Honoria Todd, it's the last safe haven. But at what price?

Blade is known as the master of the rookeries—no one dares cross him. It's been said he faced down the Echelon's army single–handedly, that ever since being infected by the blood–craving he's been quicker, stronger, and almost immortal. 

When Honoria shows up at his door, his tenuous control comes close to snapping. She's so...innocent. He doesn't see her backbone of steel—or that she could be the very salvation he's been seeking.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 02, 2012 – In Victorian London, the aristocracy is ruled by a group called the Echelon, blue bloods infected with the craving virus that will someday blossom into full-blown vampirism. Honoria Todd, daughter of a murdered inventor, escapes to the Whitechapel district with her sister and secretly infected brother. Reluctantly, Honoria asks Blade, the master of Whitechapel, to protect her family. Blade is a rogue blue blood and intensely attracted to Honoria, but she only views him as a potential monster. When a vampire commits vicious attacks in Whitechapel, Blade forges an uneasy alliance with the Echelon and Lord Vickers, his sworn enemy, to defeat the creature. Working with the Echelon is dangerous, but not as dangerous as the growing desire between Blade and Honoria. Readers will be confused by the numerous overlapping plot lines, and hastily gluing on a few gears does not a steampunk novel make. However, McMaster s debut does put an interesting twist on the vampire mythos and the brutal side of London high society.

Customer Reviews


This is the first book i have read in this genre. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The characters were very well developed and the interactions between them so believable even with the steampunk aspect. Excellent! Enjoy!


I really loved this book, I read it twice in one week. I couldn't put the book down. I love the way Blade makes Honoria feel she's used to good manners and he is not. Blade wants her from the first moment he see's her. But she will fight her feelings till she can't anymore.
