Feaster from the Stars

(2011)
(The second book in the Blackwood & Harrington Mystery series)
A novel by

 


Something strange is happening on the London Underground. The ghosts which haunt the platforms and tunnels are being seen much more frequently than usual, and it seems that they are both angry and frightened. Something has appeared on the subterranean railway network of which even the dead are afraid, and the train drivers and other staff are becoming increasingly reluctant to work there. Installation of the new Atmospheric Railway has begun, and the railway companies are demanding that the mystery be solved before their investments go up in a puff of steam.

When a train driver is driven insane by something indescribable in the remote tunnel known as the Kennington Loop, Queen Victoria instructs her Bureau of Clandestine Affairs to aid the Metropolitan Templar Police in their investigation.

Enter Thomas Blackwood, Special Investigator, and Lady Sophia Harrington, Secretary of the Society for Psychical Research. Along with Detective Gerhard de Chardin and the famous occultist Simon Castaigne, Blackwood and Sophia plunge into a terrifying adventure which takes them from the dank tunnels of the London Underground to the depths of interstellar space and a dying planet known as Carcosa, where a horrific being from beyond Space and Time has set its sights on Earth.

The being is known in the annals of the occult as the King in Yellow, or the Feaster from the Stars, and unless Blackwood and Sophia can prevail, it will descend upon the Earth and consume every living thing on it!
