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.

    Lexi Levine’s life changed forever the night she became a werewolf. She was only meant to be a temporary addition to the Shifter Squad, but at barely eighteen, she is now a permanent member of the team. 
    Well used to facing danger, none of the squad is prepared to meet Lexi’s father. Major Philip Levine is a sniper with unparalleled skills. He has returned from his overseas mission to seek answers. Even Lexi isn’t sure how he will react when he meets the squad for the first time. 
    Still coming to terms with her new role as a shifter, she is in denial about the mysterious link that has sprung up between her and Agent Reece Garrett. She hopes in vain that if she pretends that it doesn’t exist, it will just go away. 
    If the squad manages to survive her father’s anger, they must then face an even bigger threat. A voodoo practitioner has been raising corpses in New Orleans and the Shifter Squad has been ordered to investigate. If they fail to stop the man who calls himself the Zombie King, his undead minions will soon overrun the city.
