Within These Wicked Walls
by Lauren Blackwood
This mesmerizing Ethiopian-inspired gothic reimagines Jane Eyre in a fantasy setting. Andromeda was trained as a debtera — an exorcist who cleanses houses of evil spirits — though her mentor refuses to license her officially. She’s barely making a living when the wealthy Magnus Rochester hires her to rid his castle of its evil spirits. When she arrives, she’s shocked by what she finds. Deadly manifestations fill the castle beginning at 10 p.m. and continue throughout the night. She’s never seen such a multitude of evil spirits all in one place, and never this deadly. She’s unsure if she’ll be successful at ridding the castle of its hauntings, but desperate for money and finding herself somewhat attracted to the handsome Mr. Rochester, she agrees to take the job.

An article about autumn in The Times begins by quoting Emily Brontë.
Autumn is well under way and the leaves on the trees are showing off their colours, as Emily Brontë reflected in Fall, Leaves, Fall: “Lengthen night and shorten day; Every leaf speaks bliss to me.” (Paul Simons)
