We are thrilled to announce our latest acquisition: Brother Wolf by Eleanor Bourg Nicholson.
About the Book:
For Athene Howard, the only child of renowned cultural anthropologist Charles Howard, life is an unexciting, disillusioned academic project. When she encounters a clairvoyant Dominican postulant, a stern nun, and a recusant English nobleman embarked on a quest for a feral Franciscan werewolf, the strange new world of enchantment and horror intoxicates and delights her—even as it brings to light her father’s complex past and his long-dormant relationship with the Church of Rome. Can Athene and her newfound compatriots battle against the ruthless forces of darkness which howl for the overthrow of civilization and the devouring of so many wounded souls?
In this sister novel to A Bloody Habit, Nicholson explores fatherhood, spiritual authority, the occult, the advent of Modernism in the early years of the twentieth century, and the deep desire for meaning in the heart of a charming neo-pagan heroine.
Praise for A Bloody Habit (Ignatius Press, 2018):
“A real nineteenth-century Gothic vampire story, rich and colorful, and wonderfully full of foreboding. The characters are vivid and convincing.”Tim Powers, best-selling novelist
“A dark tale of vampires, mysterious strangers, animated corpses and bloody battles, A Bloody Habit is a worthy addition to the genre of Gothic horror.”Fiorella de Maria, author of The Sleeping Witness and Poor Banished Children
