London, 1895, and the Devil is on the loose. He is searching for someone morally strong enough to resist temptation, but there seems little chance he will succeed. Britain is all but totally corrupt. The aristocracy is financially and spiritually bankrupt; church leaders no longer believe in God; Victorian idealism has been banished from literature and life; and sexual morality is being undermined by the pernicious doctrines of the 'New Woman'. Everything and everyone is up for sale, and it takes a special kind of moral courage to resist the Devil's seductions

In the future world Corelli brings to life in this novel, scientific breakthroughs have made it possible to master radioactivity and other previously unharnessed energies.

135 editions published between 1889 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Popular Victorian-era writer Marie Corelli does it again in this epic romance imbued with supernatural and gothic themes.

Ziska, the problem of a wicked soul by Marie Corelli( Book )

72 editions published between 1890 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British writer Marie Corelli was among the most popular novelists of her era, earning the appreciation of even Queen Victoria herself. Within the first few pages of the addictive reincarnation romance Ziska, it's easy to understand why. A tale spanning centuries, this novel has something for everyone: gothic supernatural horror, ancient Egyptian folklore, a pair of star-crossed lovers, and even some satirical skewering of the pretensions of the British upper classes

108 editions published between 1887 and 2010 in 9 languages and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vendetta! or, The story of one forgotten by Marie Corelli( Book )

124 editions published between 1886 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Imagine friends and family believed you were dead from the Cholera - Imagine being buried alive and awakening in your coffin - Now, imagine a frantic escape from the rotting crypt only to discover something worse waiting in store ... Thus begins Marie Corelli's 1886 Victorian suspense-thriller, Vendetta. Awakening to find he has been prematurely buried, Fabio narrowly escapes from his decrepit family mausoleum in order to seek revenge upon those who have wronged him. Disfigured from the Cholera, Fabio assumes a new identity and name, and re-introduces himself to his family who are unaware of his true character. The plan he sets in motion is gruesomely terrifying - and deliciously perverse. More than a novel of revenge, Vendetta is a finely tuned character study of madness, obsession, decadence, and a celebration of Gothic settings unrivaled by even Edgar Allan Poe. Impossible to put down, it is easy to see why Marie Corelli was called the Queen of Victorian best-sellers, for Vendetta remains as spellbinding today as it was over a century ago."--Back cover
