THE WILD HUNT
WERE-LIONS & WERE-TIGER & WERE-BEARS – OH MY!
Brighton – 2010
In the sunny seaside town of Brighton, the baffling reappearance of the all but forgotten Victorian bogeyman, SPRING-HEELED JACK, sees the paranormal investigation agency of LYONS & HOUND (established 1895) take on a mysterious case. A terrifying investigation that soon leads them to uncover the existence of a secret and sinister hunting club. A truly monstrous society who, for their insanely rich and insanely adventure-seeking clientele, are arranging big game hunts of a supernatural variety.
Thrown into the middle of this terrifying investigation is TOMAS DEARLOVE; innocently (ha!) visiting his ancient, doddering and estranged relative, UNCLE CORNELIUS for the school holidays.
But can Tom survive the “tender guidance” of the deranged old lunatic.
Or the nerve-racking attentions of his eccentric uncle’s business partner –
the mysterious HOUND WHO HUNTS NIGHTMARES?
Can Tom survive the attentions of the sinister huntsmen … and their fantastical prey?
Can he survive the brutal war that appears to be erupting within the supernatural underworld between villainous gangs of VAMPIRES, WERE-CATS and GOBLINS?
And just why do they all seem to be so interested in him?
A swashbuckling supernatural adventure set in the heart of Sussex.
A DARK SECRET LAID BARE:
AN OLD SCORE TO BE SETTLED.
JOHNNY GRENDEL, the most feared and ferocious Fae in all the Nine Realms, has been freed from his bonds and is hell-bent on exacting revenge on those responsible for damning him to decades of the most cruel and torturous imprisonment – to wit, Mr Percival Percy (THE HOUND WHO HUNTS NIGHTMARES) & PROFESSOR CORNELIUS “DANDY” LYONS.
But as the esteemed paranormal investigation agency of LYONS & HOUND (est. 1895) – along with their newly acquired (and not so quietly quivering) apprentice, TOMAS DEARLOVE – race to stop the monstrous villain before his murderous rampage brings ruin to them all, the war for The Lost Crowns of Albion threatens to boil over, as villainous gangs of VAMPIRES, WERE-CATS and GOBLINS continue to battle for the supremacy of the supernatural underworld.
A swashbuckling supernatural detective adventure, continuing the curious case of The Lost Crowns Of Albion.
THE KING OF AVALON
BENEATH MY BANNER WILD THINGS GATHER!
Once again, TOMAS DEARLOVE (apprentice detective of all things supernatural, and possible heir to a subterranean kingdom of homicidal, human-hating Faeries) finds himself at the centre of the diabolical and blood-soaked game played between villainous gangs of VAMPIRES, WERE-CATS and GOBLINS as they continue their savage battle for the supremacy of the supernatural underworld.
But can Tom – along with his somewhat bizarre collection of companions (including, among others, the deadly, dangerous and possibly deranged duo of Mr Percival Percy – known, and in certain quarters feared, as THE HOUND WHO HUNTS NIGHTMARES – and PROFESSOR CORNELIUS “DANDY” LYONS) – stop this war before it’s too late?
Or, indeed, before a ruthless, powerful and covert Government organisation closes down the esteemed paranormal investigation agency of LYONS & HOUND (established 1895) for good!
A swashbuckling supernatural detective adventure, concluding the curious case of The Lost Crowns Of Albion.
When the boundaries are crossed: when the Darkness creeps towards your door: when the Nightmare slips into the waking hour: we are the ones who put things right.
