AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'AS HITLER UNLEASHES HIS BOMBS ON LONDON, ANOTHER, MORE ANCIENT, TERROR EMERGES It is the early days of the Second World War. Grace, daughter of Asterion and Noah, remains bound in agony to Catling, her wrists cruelly scarred by the otherworldly restraints. There are none, it seems, who can help Grace. Certainly not her mother or father. Jack Skelton, Brutus-reborn and the love of Noah's life, is the only one able to break through Grace's carefully constructed barriers. And while Genvissa-reborn and Coel-reborn attempt to identify exactly how to deal with the grip of a malevolent Troy Game, a killer stalks the streets of London creating terror upon terror as the bombers shadow the land.' (Publication summary)

Notes

  • Dedication: For all my fellow London map enthusiasts on ebay, without whom I could never have written this book, and also (although I doubt she wants this) for my editor, Stephanie Smith, without whom there would be almost no books at all. Thanks, Stephanie.
  • Epigraph: We are in the middle of a conflagration which is not just a struggle between two countries. It is the struggle of two different worlds. There is no way for these worlds to exist side by side. One of them must perish.
    Adolph Hitler, speech of December 10th 1940
