Summary

One of the most original and acclaimed science fiction novels of the twentieth century This landmark work of speculative fiction follows the adventurer Maskull as he travels to Tormance, the lone planet revolving around the double star system Arcturus. Each new land that Maskull visits is ruled by a different philosophy, and he must navigate each in succession as his body changes in response to the varying environments in which he finds himself. Never sure of his surroundings, Maskull must determine what we will and will not do to survive—a metaphysical inquiry that propels him toward an unforgettable final realization. A major influence on C. S. Lewis’s Space Trilogy, A Voyage to Arcturus is a surreal and masterful investigation into the meaning of good and evil, the nature of God, and the origins of the universe. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

    Who pays the price when there's hell to pay?  
    Angharad 'Harry' Russo's life has been turned upside down, but with the Mariposa defeated it looks like Harry is finally getting a break. Things are returning to normal – or at least as normal as they can be for a half-vampire witch with the gift of necromancy. Of course things aren't always what they seem. 
    There's a new club in town and a mystery man peddling promises too good to be true while normally mild-mannered citizens are turning homicidal. Even the ghosts are bringing portents of doom. 
    Can Harry put all the pieces together and solve the mystery before it's too late? Or will she be left holding the bill?

    From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day comes a story of the ultimate seduction. . . . 
    Max Westin. Sex incarnate. She could smell it, feel it with his proximity. Everything about him was a little rough, a little gritty. He was a primitive creature. Just like her. 
    He held her hand a little too long, his gaze, under thick lashes, clearly stating his intention to have her. To tame her. . . . 
    "Victoria." 
    Her name, just one word, but spoken with such possession she could almost feel the collar around her neck. 
    "It's in your nature," he murmured. "The desire to be taken." 
    In this game of cat and mouse, everything is an illusion, but the passion is as real as it gets. . . .

    "All my long life I have fallen somewhere between two beasts—man and Vampire—and yet I am neither, just as I am neither devil nor truly angel. I am a hybrid, very rare, seldom seen, so little known that some think me nothing more than a chimera. Like most creatures that dwell in the shadows, or resonate in the mythologies of man—dark fallen angels, mighty sphinxes, nosferatu, werewolves, screeching harpies, sneering gargoyles, goblins, and winged griffins—I keep my distance. But I am real. I am Cruxim."

    Vampires and their plague-poxed brethren threaten to drown Europe in a blood-borne wave. At their helm, is Beltran, a vampire whose malicious nature is as black as his many secrets and sins. Standing between such evil and the destruction of all Cruximkind is Amedeo Aeternus—the immortal half-Cruxim hybrid and dark hunter of an ancient prophecy, the fallen angel Cruor driven on by an unremitting desire for revenge on vampires worldwide. Set in 18th Century Europe, an epic saga of forbidden love plays out amid a mighty battle of good against evil, fallen angel against nosferatu devil, and reason against madness in an adventure fantasy series a critic from Literary R&R described as "like the next Anne Rice series. There's a love story alongside some pretty gruesome and evil stuff " and others have called "compelling ... dark, visceral and not for the squeamish.”
