It's customary for Gothic romance novels to include a mysterious girl locked in the attic. Hannah Smith just wishes she wasn't that girl. As a narcoleptic and the companion to an earl's daughter with a strange affliction of her own, Hannah knows she's lucky to have a roof over her head and food in her belly when so many orphans starve on the streets. Yet freedom is something Hannah longs for. She did not, however, want her freedom to arrive in the form of kidnapping.

Taken by handsome Jack Langley to a place known as Freak House, she finds herself under the same roof as a mad scientist, his niece, a mute servant and Jack, a fire starter with a mysterious past. They assure Hannah she is not a prisoner and that they want to help her. The problem is, they think she's the earl's daughter. What will they do when they discover they took the wrong girl?


When I set out to write the Freak House series, I wanted to put my own spin on the Gothic novels of the Victorian era. I've always loved their creepiness, the secrets, and the romance too, but I wanted to see the story from the perspective of the character that is often present but never the heroine - the girl kept in the attic.

I hope you'll enjoy this trilogy as much as I enjoyed writing it.

The Cursed Arsenal: Itadori Yuji

Since the start of Jujutsu Kaisen I've always pondered on the context of Yuji's main way of attacking is through weapons instead of his fists and after the introduction of Toji my mind started working on a story hence this work. I'm a big fan of the fate series especially fate stay night which lead to me making Shirou's Projection Magic into a cursed technique which you can guess is going to be Yujis. Before you ask ik there's a cursed technique like that in jjk but I didn't want to use it since already two people have the technique. Hope you enjoy
