About the book: A sweeping, multi-layered romance set in the perilous days of World Wars I and II, where gods hold the fates--and the hearts--of four mortals in their hands.

They are Hazel, James, Aubrey, and Colette. A classical pianist from London, a British would-be architect-turned-soldier, a Harlem-born ragtime genius in the U.S. Army, and a Belgian orphan with a gorgeous voice and a devastating past. Their story, as told by goddess Aphrodite, who must spin the tale or face judgment on Mount Olympus, is filled with hope and heartbreak, prejudice and passion, and reveals that, though War is a formidable force, it's no match for the transcendent power of love.

"The celery stalks at midnight!!!"

This book is a CLASSIC. Bunnicula is such a charmingly good time: you enter the Monroe household and join Harold (the family dog) and Chester (the family cat) as they witness the acts of the Monroe family's newest pet, a vampire rabbit that's sucking the juice out of vegetable every night!!!!! *GASP*

What a fantastic time this book is, seeing the world through the eyes of two family pets as they investigate this strange and mysterious new bunny in their house!
