City of Shadows(2012)
(The second book in the From the World of the Atomic Sea series)
A novel by Jack Conner
Never take your eyes off the shadows in this tale of action and horror from New York Times bestselling author Jack Conner.When disappearances and quakes start happening in the city, the life of a streetwise teen named Stevrin is changed forever. Living by his wits, he's never known a family or a comfortable place to sleep. He just wants to sneak cigarettes, ogle girls and attend boxing matches. He doesn't know what he's getting into when a possible witch named Agatha dispatches him to investigate the series of odd occurrences, which only begin with the quakes and disappearances.
Anything can happen in the mysterious, shadow-shrouded city of Lavorgna, an industrial metropolis where the sinister Guild of Alchemists holds sway over the government and underground doctors bring the dead back to life. Stevrin is thrown into a deadly stew of murders, disappearances, prostitutes, the reanimated dead and more otherworldly dangers. Something terrible is growing beneath the streets of the city.
Before long it's clear that if Stevrin and his gang don't figure out what's going on -- and stop it -- the whole world will be engulfed in horror.
City of Shadows is a standalone tale of horror and fantasy set in the same world as Jack Conner's bestselling Atomic Sea series but totally independent from it. If you like action-packed storytelling, Lovecraftian horrors and unique twists and turns you won't see coming, then you'll love New York Times bestselling author Jack Conner's City of Shadows.
