A brand-new, standalone adventure in Leanna Renee Hieber's groundbreaking, critically acclaimed Strangely Beautiful series, full of passion and power.
The Guard have always been with us, their powers passed on from generation to generation. Usually the old and new Guards have no connection, but that all changed when the six became seven and the brooding Alexi Rychman, leader of the Victorian Guard, found himself hopelessly in love with the gentle Percy Parker, who barely understood her own tremendous power.
In Miss Violet and the Great War, Percy and Alexi's daughter, Violet, leads a new Guard onto a new battlefield. Not just a psychic war this time, but a real one, with bullets flying, gas attacks, and death on every side.

It introduced the concept of gaslamp fantasy - a Victorian world haunted by the supernatural and treated as a plaything by the gods. In Strangely Beautiful and Perilous Prophecy, Hieber gave readers the adventures - and romances - of the Guard, six preternaturally-powered humans who placed themselves between danger and humanity.
