Autor Tim Waggoner
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 16 apr 2024
Twenty years ago, a cult attempted to create their own god: The Lord of the Feast. The god was a horrible, misbegotten thing, however, and the cultists killed the creature before it could come into its full power. The cultists trapped the pieces of their god inside mystic nightstones then went their separate ways. Now Kate, one of the cultists’ children, seeks out her long-lost relatives, hoping to learn the truth of what really happened on that fateful night. Unknown to Kate, her cousin Ethan is following her, hoping she’ll lead him to the nightstones so that he might resurrect the Lord of the Feast – and this time, Ethan plans to do the job right.

Descriere

Twenty years ago, a strange cult comprised of an extended family called the Shardlows decided to create their own god. Using an occult tome called The Book of Depravity, they attempted to bring into existence an avatar of the Gyre – the vast black hole that lies at the center of all realities. This avatar was called The Lord of the Feast, and to create him, the cultists needed to use human lifeforce as the raw material for their god. There was a schism within the family, and two factions developed. They fought over the Lord of the Feast’s creation, and when the god finally manifested, it was a mad, deformed, unfinished thing. The cult’s church – the family patriarch’s isolated country house – was destroyed, and the malformed god died. The surviving family members went their separate ways, each carrying with them a piece of the Lord of the Feast so that no one person could ever recreate him. Years later, one of the children – Kate Shardlow – who barely remembers what happened that terrible night, goes in search of her lost family members, hoping to discover the truth about her past. Unknown to her, Ethan Linton – her foster brother and one of the last surviving members of the rival half of the cult – is following her, hoping to find the lost pieces of the Lord and bring him into full and proper existence at last.
