Miss Violet and the Great War is a standalone adventure within the groundbreaking, critically acclaimed Strangely Beautiful series, brimming with passion and power. From childhood, Violet Rychman has dreamed of a coming war, of death and battle on an unimaginable scale. Now the future she dreamed has come to pass: World War I is raging across Europe, destroying everything and anything. Wracked by terrible visions, Violet must use the powers of her people — the abilities to impact memories, shape thoughts, and pass between the world of the dead — to stop her worst dreams from realization.
