Publisher's Summary

The Dark Volume forges ahead with the impossible adventures of three unlikely allies washed ashore on the forbidding Iron Coast. Encountering a series of savage murders, Miss Celeste Temple, Cardinal Chang, and Dr. Abelard Svenson discover that their enemies are on the move and that the insidious glass books are far more bewitching - and lethal - than they'd ever imagined.

Brimming with reckless desire, bold terror, and breathless suspense, this unique feat of the imagination will hold audiences in its dark thrall long after the novel has been devoured.

Critic Reviews

"The action ricochets ... Dahlquist combines disparate elements of Victorian adventure stories, steampunkish science fiction, murder mystery and even mad-scientist horror." (Kirkus Reviews)
