A Dr. Greta Helsing Novel: Book #3
“In the latest Dr. Greta Helsing novel, Greta is eager to take a break from the gloom of London. When a fellow doctor for the undead offers her a chance to cover for him at his top-of-the-line mummy clinic in Marseille for a few months, she jumps at the chance. She quickly finds, however, that the patients require care that is anything but routine. Inexplicable weakness and fainting spells afflict them — and not just the mummies at the clinic, but around the world. It takes nothing short of a museum heist, lost angels, an ancient god, and a trip to Hell itself to get answers. Shaw does an excellent job of building on threads in the previous books, and it culminates in a truly visceral and heart-wrenching climax that allows for Greta’s skill, compassion, and heart to shine. Though Grave Importance seems to be wrapping up the series (pun intended), I sincerely hope that Shaw will eventually return to this lovely and unique world that she’s created and give us more of Dr. Helsing and her supernatural found-family.”Darcy, Mysterious Galaxy Books
A charmingly witty fantasy adventure in the world of Strange Practice, starring Dr. Greta Helsing, doctor to the undead, who must solve a dangerous medical mystery at a secret French spa for mummies.
Oasis Natrun: a private, exclusive, highly secret luxury health spa for mummies, high in the hills above Marseille, equipped with the very latest in therapeutic innovations both magical and medical. To Dr. Greta Helsing, London's de facto mummy specialist, it sounds like paradise. But when Greta is invited to spend four months there as the interim clinical director, it isn't long before she finds herself faced with a medical mystery that will take all her diagnostic skill to solve.
A peculiar complaint is spreading among her mummy patients, one she's never seen before. With help from her friends and colleagues -- including Dr. Faust (yes, that Dr. Faust), a sleepy scribe-god, witches, demons, a British Museum curator, and the inimitable vampyre Sir Francis Varney -- Greta must put a stop to this mysterious illness before anybody else crumbles to irreparable dust...
...and before the fabric of reality itself can undergo any more structural damage.
Grave Importance is the third Dr. Greta Helsing Novel - perfect for fans of Neverwhere and V. E. Schwab.
