Dark Sleeper

(The first book in the Western Lights series)
A novel by

In the fog-enshrouded city of Salthead, metaphysics professor Titus Tiggs and Dr. Daniel Dampe investigate a series of strange, impossible sightings-from phantom ships and ghosts to creatures long extinct. What they uncover is an ancient, mystical evil intent on destroying every person in the town.

Written in a style reminiscent of 19th century authors like Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy, with tantalizing elements of science fiction and dark fantasy, Jeffrey E. Barlough's Dark Sleeper draws the reader into a complicated plot featuring dozens of fascinating characters and culminating in a surprising and unforgettable climax.

Genre: Horror

Praise for this book

"This is a wonderfully rich book, as vivid and gleaming as a Dore etching; it's a wild carriage ride through the enchanted old streets and perilous country, with odder characters than any this side of Sherlock Holmes's London. You don't read this book, you live in it, and when you've finished you'll want to go back again soon." - Tim Powers
