Review by: W. Freedreamer Tinkanesh on Dec. 17, 2014 : (no rating)
1880, London. It is the most bitterly cold winter.The day after the SS Terror returns from a scientific expedition in Arctic, the Thames is frozen and a fair is immediately set up on the icy river. All the men from the SS Terror died frozen, except for John Rowden, and his wife saw him fleeing after the boat crashed into the pier. What killed the crew? What did they bring back?
The novella 'Ice Demon' is another supernatural adventure for intrepid agents Art (artificial ghost and quaker), Jim (the animated skull) and Delphia (their human assistant). It is also an opportunity for Art to rekindle her close friendship with the Skycourt sisters, Helia and Helen.
Elizabeth Watasin wrote this new penny dread with her usual enthusiasm, attention for details and colourful style. It is easy to watch the characters move in your mind's eye as they run through the unnatural fog or skate on the frozen Thames. There is a Jules Verne feel underlying the storyline. If made into movies, Elizabeth Watasin's Dark Victorian stories would have the elegance of the 'The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen' with an uplifting light-heartiness.

Review by: W. Freedreamer Tinkanesh on Nov. 21, 2014 :
I loved 'Ice Demon'. It was great to catch up with Art and the Skycourt sisters in this novella. My only complaint: the story was too short! I'll review it properly soon.
