Description of Springheel:
After defeating the ELF Queen, Titania, Jennifer Airhart still lives in her lighthouse on top of a hill. But she no longer lives there alone, having invited her old friend and rocker Kaya Cade to stay with her. They have also become guardians of another, much younger girl, who although she tests them is secretly grateful to have a family. For a while all seems well, but that’s usually when they start getting worse.
In the nearby town of Irongate, a new threat has appeared on the streets, terrorising families and especially children. Already people are likening this creature to the Victorian boogeyman who began a reign of fear in London’s churchyards and alleys almost two centuries ago, Spring-Heeled Jack. Our heroines are called upon to put a stop to his mischief before more are seriously harmed by him.
(With this cover, I was attempting to emulate the look of some old Penny Dreadful covers that featured Spring-Heeled Jack).
