Northanger Abbey and Angels and Dragons
Dragons in the skies of Regency England!

Gothic horrors collide with high satire in this elegant, hilarious, witty, insane, and unexpectedly romantic supernatural parody of Jane Austen's classic novel.

Young and naive Catherine Morland is constantly surrounded by angels only she alone can see. Leaving her country home for the first time, to embark on a grand adventure that begins in fashionable Bath, our romantic heroine must not only decrypt the mystery of the Udolpho Code but win her true love Henry Tilney.

Meanwhile she is beset by all the Gothic horrors known to Impressionable Young Ladies—odious demons, Regency balls, elusive ghosts, pleasure excursions, temperature-changing nephilim, secret clues, ogre suitors, and a terrifying ancient Dragon who has very likely hidden a secret treasure hoard somewhere in the depths of Northanger Abbey.

Gentle Reader—this Delightful Illustrated Edition includes Scholarly Footnotes and Appendices.

This stylish and clever parody of the Austen classic Northanger Abbey comes complete with:

  • "scholarly" Footnotes that harangue the reader

  • amazing Appendices

  • a genuine romantic plot that involves an innocent heroine, a sexy Regency gentleman and many Gothic Horrors...

  • and of course the angels and the dragons!

Oh, and there are ghosts, demons, nephilim, secret hidden treasure, and an unspeakable monstrosity known only as... the Brighton Duck!
