Politics and power. Demons and spirits. 

When ex-Pinkerton detective Samuel Hunter married Elizabeth Weldsmore, the heir to one of Boston's Great Houses, he knew his life would change forever, but he never expected the return of Elizabeth's psychic abilities.

Not only do they have to keep it a secret, but Elizabeth must learn quickly how to master them. For a psychic in a Great House is a political liability which her father, Jonathan Weldsmore, knows only too well. 

As the Great Houses jockey for power, the three of them must contend with treachery, subterfuge, and potentially a new demonic threat, in this political and supernatural thriller set in an alternate-history Boston of 1890.

This novel is the prequel to the popular graphic novel, Boston Metaphysical Society: The Complete Series.

Boston Metaphysical Society: A Storm of SecretsSteampunk lovers, mystery mavens, paranormal fans, THE BOSTON METAPHYSICAL SOCIETY is here! Madeleine Holly-Rosing has done a remarkable job of creating that special atmosphere that only steampunk can provide while twisting each page into a tension-filled mystery that borders on both sides of “the veil.”

Enter the world of nineteenth century Boston, where “Great Houses” control the political climate, commerce and the inventions of the times with iron fists and a keen sense of competition to be the top dog. Meet Elizabeth, a newly wed, strong willed, yet impulsive woman of the times who also has the gift of sight that just may get her into more trouble than anyone could have imagined. Something evil is lurking in Boston and death is on the menu…can Elizabeth uncover a horrific and diabolical plot?

Told mostly through the dialogue of each character, one feels they are part of the era’s drawing room conversations, like a fly on the wall. The action is subtle, not overbearing, yet conveys great movement in story.

A wonderfully entertaining escape from reality that provides great characters, mystery and a journey into the unknown. Madeleine Holly-Rosing has done a remarkable job of creating tension and anticipation on every page!
