Overview

London, 1593. Christopher Marlowe, playwright, spy, and renowned womanizer, is desperately working on what could be his greatest play. But inspiration eludes him, until a chance encounter with a dark temptress rekindles his passion and the words start to flow with that famous passion.
Forces are arrayed against Marlowe. Something doesn't want him finishing, and it's not just the Queen’s Privy Council, who would see Marlowe institutionalized. The Black Death is abroad—illness and madness rampage through the streets, causing death and insanity and mayhem. Marlowe suspects there is a foul agency at work, but can the incandescent playwright stop the chaos before it overwhelms the entire city?
This new occult thriller from bestselling authors Aaron Rosenberg and Steven Savile combines Elizabethan theatre, ancient mythology, and ageless seduction to create a dark, gripping tale that is both as old as time itself and wholly original.

    more from this reviewer

    Forsooth - a most fantastical tale to delight and entertain!

    No finer compliment need be paid to the craft of this pair of writers than to say that the narration puts you into a living, breathing, drinking and cursing 1593 – as it exists on the lines that ripple with wit and elegance – rather than merely describing a story that happened 400+ years ago.

    Expanding on Christopher Marlowe’s singular history and adding a touch of the fantastical, the story crackles and burns like the Phoenix itself. (You’ll need to read the story to see what I mean)

    Marlowe, famed playwright, is more than he seems – but finds himself wrestling to finish his latest play, a dramatic return to Carthage. Sinister forces are afoot, however, and whilst a newfound love suddenly flames his passion and his writing craft back to glory, so London finds itself in the grip of plague-ridden madness and evil deeds.

    In a race against total destruction, the loss of sanity, and the machinations of the Privy Council – Marlowe must finish the play, save the city and work out who or what his new love is really planning.

    This pair of writers – born on the same day, no less: which leads me to a cunning belief that they themselves are not all they seem… – have wrought an echoing tale of passion and power that wrings every ounce of Elizabethan intrigue, occult fantasy and vivid charm from the events surrounding Marlowe’s life and untimely death.
