The latest release by multiple award-winning novelist Lisa Morton, Netherworld
marks the advent of the Chronicles of Diana Furnaval
series. Hailed as “one of the best writers in dark fiction today,” Morton delivers a phenomenal tale that teems with suspense, horror, and action.
In nineteenth-century Victorian England, a young widow finds that she has inherited more than her late husband's property: The Furnavals serve as the ancestral keepers of supernatural portals scattered around the globe. When demonic entities begin crossing over from the Netherworld, Lady Diana realizes that a war is brewing, and she must be the one to confront it.
Accompanied by a young Chinese sailor named Yi-kin, her feline guardian Mina, and a mysterious scholar, Stephen, Diana will begin a journey to solve the mystery of her husband's death and prevent the apocalypse.
According to David Liss,
Bestselling author of The Twelfth Enchantment
and The Whiskey Rebels,
is a crazily fun romp, compulsively readable and full of wit, engaging characters, and wonderfully weird supernatural twists. Lisa Morton has created dazzling entertainment that’s a great mystery, historical thriller, spy story, and horror novel all rolled into one.”
Lisa Morton is a screenwriter, author of non-fiction books, award-winning prose writer and Halloween expert. Lisa’s work was described by American Library Association’
s Readers’ Advisory Guide to Horror as “consistently dark, unsettling, and frightening.”
Lisa’s non-fiction works include: The Halloween Encyclopedia
(now in its second edition), and Trick or Treat: A History of Halloween.
