Just about a year ago, we provided you with an excerpt from The Wolves of London, Book One of Mark Morris’ Obsidian Heart series; and with Book Two, The Society of Blood, being released by Titan tomorrow, October 13th, we’re back with another.
Morris has written over twenty-five novels, including four books in the popular Doctor Who range. He is also the author of two short story collections and several novellas. His short fiction, articles, and reviews have appeared in a wide variety of anthologies and magazines, and he is editor of Cinema Macabre, a book of horror movie essays for which he won the 2007 British Fantasy Award.
Transported through time to the dank streets of Victorian London, Alex Locke seeks to unravel the mysteries of the Obsidian Heart, the enigmatic object to which his fate is inextricably bound. When a string of grisly murders takes place across the capital, Alex follows a trail that will lead him through the opium dens of Limehouse into the dark and twisted world of the Society of Blood and ever closer to unlocking the secret of the Heart. This is the twisted sequel to the hybrid horror The Wolves of London.
