THE MORNING AFTER THE NIGHT BEFORE
Dr Michael Crawford wakes to a bed soaked by carnage and the impossibly savaged body of his bride. He flees England to escape the hangman's noose. His only hope lies with the most notorious poets of the age: Keats, Shelley and Byron.
Slowly they bring Crawford to a terrible understanding of the force that damns him as surely as it protects him. For Crawford has another, secret, bride who rules the hours of his sleep. She is as beautiful as she is evil. She is an ancient power that threatens to ravage the lives of each of her lovers.
A masterful blend of the poetic and the grotesque, the real and the imagined, this transfixing novel displays Tim Power's mastery of the genre at his most ambitious best.
