European travel for the monstrous gentlewoman

Mary Jekyll's life has been peaceful since she helped solve the Whitechapel Murders. Beatrice Rappaccini, Catherine Moreau, Justine Frankenstein, and Diana Hyde have settled into the Jekyll household in London and the members of the Athena Club get along as well as any five young women with very different personalities. But when Mary receives a telegram that Lucinda Van Helsing has been kidnapped, the Athena Club must travel to the Austro-Hungarian Empire to rescue another young woman who has been subjected to experimentation. Racing against the clock to save Lucinda from certain doom, the Athena Club embarks on a madcap journey across Europe. They must make new allies, face old enemies and confront the fearsome, secretive Alchemical Society. It's time for these monstrous gentlewomen to overcome the past and create their own destinies.
