Journal Entry 1 by futurecat from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Friday, September 11, 2015
A very odd story, set in an alternative history where packs of wolves terrorise Britain, and the Jacobian rather than Hanoverian line rules (the latter point of difference being one which is only mentioned in an author's note at the beginning of the story and never referred to again - it does feature in the sequel though, so I assume the author already had that in mind when writing this book). Two children defeat an evil governess plotting to destroy their family (who of course (spoiler alert, sort of), in the grand tradition of children's adventure stories, survive what seems certain doom via unlikely and only vaguely-explained means so that everyone can live happily ever after). Fun, but very weird.
