Publisher's Summary

Panic fills the streets of 1756 London when the earth suddenly starts lurching and spinning, and the city is left in total darkness. Is the end of the world at hand?

Agetta Lamian fears so. As the young housemaid of Dr. Sabian Blake, a scientist who possesses an ancient and powerful book called the Nemorensis, Agetta overhears his prophecy: This disaster is only a warning, for a deadly comet is headed straight for London.

Dr. Blake believes the comet will either end the world as he knows it or announce a new age of scientific and spiritual enlightenment. But whatever the outcome, he must cope with the madness that grows in London as the comet approaches, as well as with his fears that the Nemorensis's power could be clouding his own reason and drawing dangerous spirits to his door. Soon even Agetta seems to have been seduced by the book, and to whom she ultimately delivers it will determine much more than just her fate.

G.P. Taylor has woven another thrilling tale of Good versus Evil, where fallen angels and dark spirits vie for allegiance during a time of treachery and deceit.

    "Difficult Read"

    Other than the last hour or two, comprising the ending and this book?s only redeeming value; I found the story to be a long and difficult read. Although it is written on a great premise of fallen angels, prophesizing books, and restless spirits, it just doesn?t manage to fulfill its promise of true suspense and thrilling adventure. Instead it leaves you hoping the story will save itself at some point, pick up the pace, and really become entertaining. I am an avid book lover, both written and audible, and I finish every book I start ? but this one was just painful and I would not listen to it again.

    "Great Concept, So So Read"

    The concept of fallen angels, life's regrets and fallen spirits is great, but the round and round, monochrome dialogue left me a bit bored. I would have prefered the plot to speed up a bit on this one. It was an ok book, but not a rave. Lacking captivation for the reader/listener.

    "wormwood-lots of worm, no wood"

    Religious ramblings, sounds like inquisition on Red Bull overdose. Complete waste of time.
