Book Description
 
Carroll & Graf.: NY 1990 First edition, first printing, new/unread in flawless dustjacket.

An extraordinary story of suspense set in 1872, The Werewolves of London examines the similar plights of David Lydyard and Gabriel Gill, a young man and a small boy who find themselves possessed by uncanny visionary powers. David and Gabriel are unknowing hosts for enormously powerful beings - the fallen angels of Biblical mythology. While David takes pains to hide his condition from his rigidly skeptical guardian, Gabriel conceals him from the nuns who run the orphanage where he is confined. But there are others who know of the powers which the two young men are acquiring: the heretic priests of the secret Order of St. Amycus the occultist and reputed Satanist Jacob Harkender and, of course, the legendary werewolves of London. Whatever plans these others have for the use of David's and Gabriel's skills might easily be rendered insignificant by the schemes and conflicts of the fallen angels themselves but these beings, though they have the power to work miracles, have awakened from their long rest to find a world very different from the one they knew previously. In order to understand this new world, and to discover what roles they might play in it, they need the use of human eyes and human minds. The abilities which David and Gabriel have are not without cost: pain amplifies their powers of vision, and those who are eager to use them are prepared to hurt them as well as to seduce them. As they are drawn into the deadly battle between forces of godlike power, their sanity and survival are threatened, and they must turn for help to a scientist and a renegade werewolf. As the fallen angels move toward their final confrontation in a strange private Hell, their pawns must move with them, struggling for their own lives and perhaps for the fate of the world. The Werewolves of London is a spectacular opening to a highly stimulating and inventive new trilogy.
