The city of Lovecraft is a rational place, where science and reason are the law of the land, and religion and spirituality are the damned works of heretics. During the day all is well, but at night ghouls stalk the sewers while shapeless monsters writhe inside the stolen skin of unfortunate travelers. And that’s nothing compared to what goes on outside the city’s walls.
It is into this dark countryside that sixteen-year-old Aoife Grayson must venture after she receives a mysterious plea for help from her brother, who may be homicidally insane. Burdened with a haunted past and a blood disease that could drive her mad, Aoife may find that those few people who are trying to help her are more dangerous than those trying to kill her. -Rich
