The Birdcatcher by Stacy Bourns

The Birdcatcher is book one in the Birdcatcher series, previously it has only been available as an ebook. Now though you can purchase it in paperback from Amazon.

4 star reviewed book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Goodreads.

With a heavy heart, sixteen-year old Alice Davison boards a transatlantic steamship heading toward an unknown life in post-Civil War America. This dread soon blossoms into terror when she senses that there is someone, or something, lurking in the dark crevices of the ship. When a new friend mysteriously dies, Alice finds that her worst fears have come true: she and the other passengers are trapped on board with a creature straight out of a Gothic novel. Vampires, it seems, are all too real. Unfortunately, danger doesn't only prowl in the dark bowels of the ship. It also thrives in the sparkling rooms of first class and even hides in the murky waters of the Atlantic. And when she finds herself ensnared by a first-class passenger, enchanting Sir Henry Falkner, she can't even be sure whether he is her suitor or her enemy.

The sequel Artemis Rising is available now and Lodestar the final volume coming soon.

I hope that something like this gets built, it will make our cities more liveable and enjoyable. Instead of miles of concrete and tarmac, we can have neighborhoods that are sustainable. Your local shops and restaurants will thrive and there will be a sense of community.
Who said about land "their not making any more of it?" Steve Dombeck finds it lying in the middle of the road.

Check out +Stacy Bourns  website for a sample of her new book For Mercy's Sake  A Ghost Club Mystery. The book is available on Amazon now aimed at Middle School readers. However don't let that put you off picking up the book for a blast of nostalgia, though I am biased it is fun engrossing read with more wonderful characters to come to love.
