There was pain, bright pain, and a stream of sensations and images flowing through her: a house glittering under the cold stars, blood running across white stone, grey figures, and a man with an old face and cold eyes, so very cold...
–John French, The Lies of Solace
Jacqueline Fine is having visions…visions of a robed man before the crumbling edifice of a city, of bones and flesh at his feet, of blood and terrifying words. She's determined to stop this latest vision from happening, but can she change fate, or only allow herself to be swept along in the tides that come?
Coming to book stores in just a few short weeks, John French’s The Lies of Solace is the second novel in The Lord of Nightmares Trilogy. This gripping story is based on the popular Arkham Horror board game, in which investigators clash with the ancient terrors that plague the city of Arkham.
So far, we’ve seen the first two chapters of The Lies of Solace, in which we’ve met a doctor driven by strange discoveries and a distraught bootlegger searching for his lost fiancée. Today, in our final preview (pdf, 72 KB), we join Jacqueline Fine just in time to witness a haunting and prophetic vision.
